"Because suffering is part of human life, everyone asks why it exists, and the answers we give to ourselves make a great deal of difference. Explanations lead to action, for one thing. Billions of people choose religion as a way to accept suffering or to try and escape it. ... If you accept that random events will bring pain into your existence, with no blame or guilt on your part and no higher being who is punishing you, you won't behave like a devout Christian or Muslim."
