Douglas, I have Muslim friends who cringe at the thought of being represented as being part of a religion that beheads people, etc., and with each comment you show your own ignorance of anyone’s perspective other than your own.
In the end it won’t matter what I say to you because you have your opinions and you obviously…
You’re talking about extremism… I’m talking about personal belief systems. If you do harm to others, than no… I’m not going to believe your religion is sanctified… obviously.
I keep a reading blog for this purpose… because as soon as I’m finished a book I will forget the title, author, etc. Thanks for listing these and for the links. I loved Sapiens and Homo Deus, by the way, even if they were incredibly long books.
