The original context was included in the following comment:

Intellectual inquiry IS a way of being religious, and an important one. Religious scholars usually divide religious behavior into six categories, one being inquiry. Some posit further that any religion or sect that grows for a long enough period of time will eventually incorporate all six categories, which you can find here:

Or, rather, what's your take on the comment? I meant to say that some people wrestle with God by trying to think him through. I wasn't expecting any 6 jokes.

That being said, it was pretty funny when I saw it!

Sook, thanks for your two comments. I'm glad it made you laugh. I was in an odd mood when I posted this particualr post and feel rather strange about it since the link in question is, no doubt, a valid one. Nevertheless, something made me want to approach the link in the way I did. All the best.
