Lets rename the pathogen and call it 'Islamomyth'. Has a nice ring to it, easy to say and has the effect of de mystifying the dogma. The Islamomythology dogma advances the notion of 'Holy war' to advance the cause of a maleviolent deity. The highest level , where you get to be with the deity, is only in the ' House of Maytyrs' . This means that by killing as many "Infidels" or "Jews" as possible, and you will get to paradise, but if you kill yourself in the process, you go directly into the presence of the deity, the only way to get there. By internalizing this mythology, we get the same kind of personality disorder as those drawn into 'Dungeons and dragons' and act out the tenets of the myth.
