religion ... the proof

How much of what passes for religion is little more than an effort to prove to others what anyone might lack the courage and kindness to prove to themselves?

Perhaps the question points out in some measure why religion is called -- often with a swirling and lubricated smugness -- a belief system.

It's not a question I can answer, but to the extent that it might be true, I think it's a pity.

Courage and kindness are nice.
