  • I agree, if there isn't any mystery, something that can't be explained logically, than it is a mundane topic or theory. All religion & all spiritual issues, have a mystical component. That doesn't mean that religion is all mystery though.

  • Disagree, --- I dont mean in the sense of that there arent unknowns, but if you define mystery in the sense of the need for making things unattainable, or difficult to find, obscure. A religion should be able to be presented clearly, and logically, without mystery so it is easily understood for all . Mankind just loves secrets and mysteries, but thats just a way to massage the ego, that they were inteligent enough to understand the difficult bits, and to retain the excitement of things to come.

    Its not a religion that needs it , its the baser instinct in man.
