Faith vs. Religion


I finished Angels and Demons by Dan Brown yesterday, and there was one small discourse which articulates exactly what I feel about faith and religion:

Vittoria: "Religion is like language or a dress. We gravitate towards the practices with which we were raised. In the end though, we are all proclaiming the same thing. That life has meaning. That we are grateful for the power that created us."

Langdon: "So you are saying that whether you are a Christian or a Muslim simply depends on where you were born?"

V: "Isn't it obvious? Look at the diffusion of religion around the globe."

L: "So faith is random?"

V: "Hardly. Faith is universal. Our specific methods for understanding it are arbitrary. Some of us pray to Jesus, some of us go to Mecca, some of us study sub-atomic particles. In the end, we are all just searching for truth, that which is greater than ourselves."


Dan Brown, get out of my head!
