in response to reader comment: raheel hits the nail on the head

Submitted by raheel (United Kingdom), Oct 10, 2006 at 17:00

Dear Charles,

fair comment, but i think you put too much faith in technology. We as a species have reached the tipping point. At our rate of consumption,we in the west would need another 3.1 planet earths just to keep up this rate of consumption. I hope to God you are right, but i'm pessimistic.

With regards to your views on religion, speaking as a muslim...YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. The 3 Abrahamic religions, AS INTERPRETED BY THEIR RESPECTIVE FOLLOWERS, have brought the world not peace but violence and carnage. As a muslim, it pains me to say this but Islam today bears no relation to the values i was brought up to believe... respect for your fellow human beings regardless of faith, peaceful intergration, honest values and ethics,

regards, Raheel

Submitting....
