Religion defies understanding?

A correspondence in Nature today comments on a previous column that reflects on the Higgs boson.

Our species has derived many things from its various religions – some fair and noble, others foul and destructive – but understanding is not one of them.

I suppose this person is not acquainted with the Dalai Lama’s book.
