“Belief systems always have a complete explanation for anything that’s going on. They brace up authority, are perfectly rational and inherently dangerous. You want to keep a clear boundary around your belief system. You definitely want to stimulate opposition. You never win an argument with a believer.”Religion, he says, is full of questions and the capacity to open us to ongoing wonder.
