A person may obtain a situation by the intercession of friends, he procures a dinner by paying for it. Attain is a lofty word, pointing to some high or desirable result; a man attains the mountain summit, he attains honor or learning as the result of strenuous and earnest labor. Even that usage of attain which has been thought to refer to mere progress of time carries the thought of a result desired; as, to attain to old age; the man desires to live to a good old age; we should not speak of his attaining his dotage. One may attain an object that will prove not worth his labor, but what he achieves is in itself great and splendid; as, the Greeks at Marathon achieved a glorious victory. Compare DO; GET; REACH.

The strength and weakness of reason is that it imposes a uniform way of thinking and understanding. Hence its usefulness is immediate to society but not to that extent to the individuals in the same society; again the reason evolves all the time. The very evolution happened at differing geographical isolations made individuals with different levels of mental capacity; the uniform force of reason of society threatens individual minds that are not fully evolved to grasp the reason; such minds are weak and only attained a capacity to create questions without an ability to generate answers; having created the questions they are ready to receive any kind of answers instead of handling the reason. The reason is a day to day struggle for them while the religion has been made available as a readymade answer for any circumstances. Hence at the level of society the reason wins but at the individual level of practice the reason often fails and that makes religion to win.
