I find it interesting that Tolstoy was so religiously devout (not to any religion, but to the faith). His writing suggests a keen eye for skepticism, seeing through BS, knowing a scam when he sees one, wary and mocking of superstition, and always on the lookout for a manipulator or someone who is naive who will fall for it and ruin their life. So many consequences arise from foolishness that his own faith seems odd.
