Facts Without Meaning

Alan Watts
"An enormous amount of spiritual energy is wasted and Christian unity lost in argument as to whether these symbolic events actually happened. Granted that this is an important question; but it is so much more important to understand what they mean, and if unbelievers could be enlightened as to the inner meaning of these events they would be far more ready than otherwise to accept their factual truth." 
"The mythos of Catholicism must be understood inwardly and mystically as well as in terms of history and theology."
Behold the Spirit, pages 54, 56
