What are ways that people can be attracted to religion?
Does the attraction differ for somebody who wants to become a part of the religion vs somebody who is just interested?
- starts as academic
- then the interest becomes deeper
- then you start to develop a personal connection to the thing
- you have to keep it from getting creepy
Then we got to talking about the communal aspects of religion. A community is made up of indeviduals who are all separate together.
Post dialogue question: If a Jew eats pork in a forest and nobody's around to hear, is it kosher? haunting
