Gary , in what way could you possibly feel threatened by me ? Could you simply be mistaking a Zealot with a Fundamentalist ?What frightens me more than anything is the fundamentalism on the religious front that's spreading all over the world.Do you honestly believe that religion is the divisive factor at work in the world today ? I don't ! Money , wealth , land grab for greater wealth , tribal (culture) differences the list goes on . Sure , at times religion differences have played their part , but nowhere to the extent you're trying to imply .Why can't people see how divisive it is? I feel almost like we are back in the middle ages.Scott explained his opinion or theory , some of it I agree with but I would argue that Scott has made a better arguement for people who have turned their back on God ie. materialism and selfishness . By accepting the written word of God makes me a fundamentalist , not a zealot . And to further disagree with something Scott saidScott just explained the reasons for fundamentalismsSpeak for yourself , I know exactly what my social role is !We simply not hardwired to think in the large-scale systematic terms required to understand or appreciate our social position (none of us understand our social role).
