GUEST,Richard Bridge (cookie and format C) BS: Intellectual Roots of Islamic Terror (25) RE: Intellectual Roots of Islamic Terror 13 Nov 02


Very interesting.

Thread drift setting in now. Are all terrorist campaigns based on religion (or, if you prefer, inextricably linked with religion) or is religion in any or every case prayed in aid of a secular cause? (Pace the Irish issue)? How to fit the Russian revolution into this, or can one argue that atheism is a religion?

Or, would we be better people or better off without religion? What, then is humanism?

Second, can it be argued that it is beneficial for religions to come to terms with capitalism, or should we assert that capitalism is the oppressor, and thus seek to justify the violent overthrow of capitalism without necessarily introducing a theist element?
