Why people should choose to believe that:

Why should anyone believe anything? It's what people do best - they believe in stuff that has meaning to them. Isn't that what Folk is all about anyway? Looking for religious meaning & experience in a sort-of traditional continuity which is, after all, just as unlikely as Joseph O'Arimathea planting his staff in Weary-All Hill.
