A desensitised brain is halfway in the afterlife
Bible, Romans 2:29
Where sensitivity ends guesswork begins. Lack of required information prompts abstract reasoning. Conjecturing what lies beyond senses fills one with a sense of awe. Thinking of what is unknown stimulates intuition, fantasy, devotion, divination, piety and superstition that religions readily utilize. Man circumcises, insinuates the Bible, and then God fills his heart with godliness in return. The modern reading of these wise words simply asserts that circumcision disposes to religiousness. Actually, paedocircumcision was designed to facilitate its implanting.
