Can it be done? My position is that it can be easily defined outside of doctrinal or belief driven positions.
Yet again and again, I have found that this very idea shuts down rational thought among religionists, or even 'former' religionists. The common european/ north american idea is that all good and bad knowledge flows from "God's Word" (The Bible..) . Before the book existed we were all supposedly non thinking uber-sinning barbarians. But now we have it and just to read it will make us all morally superior…
Same thing is going on in the Koran reading countries.
A return to radical fundamentalism seems to be at hand. Do we want to ride this down into a second Dark Ages?
What's the deal?
