To Believe or Not to Believe

Looking at the recent crop of books on God and religion, it is hard to avoid the conclusion that whether people end up like Mr Gosse or like his father depends on whether they have an intrinsic feeling for religion or not.

The above quote talks about a father and son. Gosse was taken by his father to the top of the hill in order to protect him from being influenced by those who did not believe. This did not work and the son ended up steering clear of religion while the father stuck with his. So whatever argument you choose, more likely it will be a reflection of whether you have feeling for religion or not.
