A Kind of Compulsion, The Complete Works, vol. X, artikel 100, s. 189-190.

Brev till Max Plowman, 1 november 1930:

I see that Mr. Murry says in his article, ”Because orthodox Christianity is exceedingly elaborate, it presents a greater appearance of unity than (childish superstition)”. I know this is so, but the why is beyond me. It is clear that the thicker the fairy tales are piled, the more easily one can swallow them, but this seems so paradoxical that I have never been able to understand the reason for it.
