When you’re a child, you’re taught the simple colors: red, yellow, blue, green. You have a crayon box with eight colors.
Then you get a little older, and you learn that there are a lot shades in between colors, and you can mix two colors together to make a third, completely different color. You have a crayon box with 64 colors.
Then you get even older, and you learn that the number of colors are infinite, and there are bands of light that butterflies can see but we can’t, and some kinds of light that no animal that we know of can see, but they’re there, and there are probably all sorts of colors filling the universe that our bodies and brains just aren’t equipped to detect.
And I think it’s the same way with religion.
“God is great, God is good,” is a great way for children to begin. Religious texts and teachings are good ways to continue.
But don’t stop there. The entire universe is about to open up.
