    Abraham Joshua Heschel book G-d in Search of Man, under the heading of To Recover the Questions: " Religion is an answer to man's ultimate questions. The moment we become oblivious to ultimate questions, religion becomes irrelevant, and its crisis sets in. The primary task of philosophy of religion is to discover the questions to which religion is an answer. The inquiry must proceed both delving into the consciousness of man as well as by delving into the teachings and attitudes of the religious tradition". "A dead thought has been compared to a stone which one may plant in th soil. Nothing will come out . A living thought is like a seed, In the process of thinking, an answer without a question is devoid of life". "When faith becomes an heirloom rather than a living fountain; when religion speaks only in the name of authority rather than with the voice of compassion its message becomes meaningless". Perhaps you just don't like people with beards, if we all shave will you be happy then ? Read Torah, Listen to Torah, Meditate on Torah, Live Torah.
