Verbatim: Lewis on plausibility structures

 “It is your senses and your imagination that are going to attack belief. Here, as in the New Testament, the conflict is not between faith and reason but between faith and sight … Our faith in Christ wavers not so much when real arguments come against it as when it looks improbable – when the whole world takes on the desolate look which really tells us more about the state of our passions and even our digestion than about reality.”

C.S. Lewis, “Religion: Reality or Substitute” in Christian Reflections p.43.
