Pope Benedict XVI lectured to a crowd that Muslims have little reason and therefore pervert God's plan. He cited for evidence a 14th Century Byzantine text, which upbraided Muslims for bringing faith with the sword. [What's that saying? Clean up your own back porch before you start criticizing another's dirty porch?]
His speech, however, didn't stop there. He next criticized the West for having too much reason. Why is this a problem:
Why can't we just talk to each other: Secular Christians and Faithful Muslims? It all boils down to having just the right proportions of reason. Too much and you're shutting the door to dialogue like us science-minded secularists. Too little, and you're all jihadi. So, what's the right amount of reason?
When reason leads humans to embrace Evolution as a powerful scientific theory for explaining speciation, have we crossed the line? If we don't think conception begins at fertilization . . .have we become too deaf to hear our Muslim brothers? What is just right?
