Stages of Faith?

Alfamax responds to Keith's post on Fowler's famous 'Stages of Faith' model, where different forms of faith are seen as reflecting different levels of maturity.

I can't help but think that maybe we should make up a stage theory about how psychologists come to make up theories of stage theory!

In many ways it's humans looking for a concrete and linear structure where none exists. Moments of spiritual transcendence can be experienced by anyone, at any age and at any time, which can be evidenced with the work of poets, musicians and in fact any person that expresses themselves through thought and ultimately their works.
