Every Intelligent Person Encounters This In Some Form Perhaps...Like I know male nerds who are Christians and wonder why the aren't popular at church. Probably asking too many questions on thinking too much about your religion :-D
And I see the same problem with the animists. I'd love to believe in animism, and to some degree do...
But I ask fun questions like "How do legos work?"
If you make something out of legos, does that thing have a soul? and what if I take that something apart and make something else, how does that work?
Or "If I add a second monitor to my computer, is that now one being or two?"
And of course no animist wants to hear my take on taking out the trash :-D
