perhaps denial is better

I mentioned before that the commonest response by a religion to an uncomforatble truth (such as their basic doctrines are simply wrong) is denial, followed by airbrushing the offending doctrine from the corpus. Perhaps it is better that way, since the alternative of have faith shaken can be very disturbing, for some even a not very good or well researched novel is able to shake their beliefs so much that it becomes unbearable.
