Is Religion a Rubber Ducky?

If being an adult means being rational, then what does it mean to be a child? Does it mean being irrational? To the extent that religion involves the childlike gesture of “faith” (Emunah), it would seem to be an irrational, immature enterprise. Unless of course there is a viable adult alternative to Rationalism and Irrationalism alike.
Faith; Belief in G-d, Mishkan, Religion; Religious Ritual, Reason and Supra-rationality, Terumah

Boker tov, Rabbi Chigjel -
I thoroughly enjoyed your conversation with Herr Doktor. After the laughs, however, I'm digging deep and re-listening. Can I get a transcript of this 'dialog'?
