Angels and Demons

First I'm going to say this is one great book, I've been listing to it on my drive back and forth to Ontario the last two weeks. Second I'm going to post two quotes from the book that I can relate a lot too.

Vittoria Vetra: Religion is like language or dress. We gravitate toward the practices with which we were raised. In the end, though we are all proclaiming the same thing. That life has meaning. That we are grateful for that created us.
Robert Langdon: So you’re saying that whether you are a Christian or a Muslim simply depends on where you were born?
Vittoria Vetra: Isn’t it obvious? Look at the diffusion of religion around the globe.
Robert Langdon: So faith is random?
Vittoria Vetra: Hardly. Faith is universal. Our specific methods for understanding it are arbitrary. Some of us pray to Jesus, some us go to Mecca, some of us study subatomic particles. In the end we are all just searching for truth, that which is greater than ourselves.

***
Robert Langdon: Do you believe in God?
Vittoria Vetra: Science tells me God must exist. My mind tells me I will never understand God. And my heart tells me I am not meant to.
