It is paradoxical, yet true, to say, that the more we know, the more ignorant we become in the absolute sense, for it is only through enlightenment that we become conscious of our limitations.

God is a metaphor for that which transcends all levels of intellectual thought. It's as simple as that.
Religion is part of the human make-up. It's also part of our cultural and intellectual history.
