Angels on the head of a pin

Reader comment on item: The Mystical Menace of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
in response to reader comment: good news & bad

Submitted by Robert A (United States), Jan 14, 2006 at 03:54

These ad infinitum discussions of Islam, Moslems, the Koran, etc. are exercises in futility. Islam was considered a dying religion at the turn of the 20th century. The only thing that jacked it up was oil money. And all problems associated with Islam will die out when the money is gone.

Time would be better spent discussing how our own ossified economic institutions relating to cars and gas need to be changed. We need to utilize the creative technology that is the crowning achievement of Western thought to solve our own problems.

After years of reading about these issues, I think I'm going to quit.
