Religion.

"If we are honest—and scientists have to be—we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality.
The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."

Lewis' close friend J.R.R. Tolkien strenuously disliked "Jack's" Narnia books. He correction (IMO) criticized it as clumsy allegory and, worse, a completely unoriginal grab-bag of existing childish fantasy tropes (for Aslan's sake, fucking Santa Claus is in it!)

That's one set of books (Narnia) that I never should have reread as an adult. I was looking forward to reading them to my son, but found the allegory and moralizing so heavy-handed that I had to stop just a few chapters into book one. It's telling that my kid didn't care that we'd left off in the middle.
