Unable to see sense or profit

An unbeliever or skeptic, for whom fantasy remains properly restricted to the imagination, is at an inherent disadvantage when religions seek to make war upon one another, being unable to see sense or profit in a slaughter intended to determine the temporary ascendency of one invented folly over another. It seems to such a one of little importance ultimately whether the advocates of the green fairies should triumph over the forces of the blue fairies, and he wonders that it can matter enough to anyone to warrant the resulting violence and suffering and destruction.
