    Yes. Though people may invent reasons why we human beings would long for worlds that don’t exist, all such thinking certainly does not enhance our ability to survive and reproduce, which is what we are supposed to be all about according to standard views of evolution.

    Yet humans DO in fact long for something that goes beyond our world, something beyond any aspect of our ordinary experience.

    I am sitting here in Oxford reading this article and looking forward to the Tolkien exhibit this afternoon. It is this ‘search for doors’ that led me here, led me to write, and led me to create as my Creator – to build worlds seems like, after all, a very fine way to enter into faith.

What do you think?
