One day, Mara, the Buddhist lord of ignorance and evil, was traveling through the villages of India with his attendants. He saw a man doing walking meditation whose face was lit up in wonder. The man had just discovered something on the ground in front of him.

“Not at all,” Mara replied. “Because right after they find it, they usually make a belief out of it.” (Buddhist story from “Soul Food,” Kornfield and Feldman, p. 227, adapted.)
