Here's the trap - Religion is full of contradiction - yet - the universe is clearly magical - we can see exactly why religion would come to be.
The place to be would be the open awe, the recognition of the magic, but with no predefined way of explaining the mystery. And as soon as the urge to explain rise - it be instantly quashed.
An open mind taking in the universe, with no story, no justification, no rationale. Recognising a deep beauty and maintaining that beauty by refusing to taint it with even one thought.
