I was a young boy but I still remember what one old man once said as he sat on a bench on the courthouse square. This groups of "scholars" had been discussing the subject of religion. In years past the courthouse square in many an American community was like nothing one might see today.
I remember as a very small boy going with my parents and sometimes my grandparents and seeing the gathering of men on all four corners of the courthouse square in Sullivan, Indiana. On a Saturday they might be gathered there from early morning till late evening.
What this one said and, I still remember, was something to this effect: "How is it that those who seem to have so little, almost nothing, are always so quick to believe in what they can not see?"
You got an answer?
