A Herd of Sheep
In most of the cases in life people act like a herd of sheep. They just accept and follow the rules and never question them. Neither they experience the alternative 'answers' (meaning answrs other than religion or any established tradition) because those alternative ways look too risky and too frightening too follow. Living in a way not dictated by the traditions looks like a tunnel to them, a tunnel that its end is unclear.
This herd of sheep are looking for certainty, not truth. They need someone to show them a "road" with a clear beginning and destination. They choose to believe in that road, even if they know that that road is just a lie: it is much easier to follow a false imaginary clear road than entering a real tunnel with an unknown end.
