Recognizing Why Fundamentalism Does Not Have Universal Support - Fundamental Truth Not Fully Discernable in Human Terms

Reader comment on item: The Fundamentalism Project

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jul 18, 2022 at 15:18

Determining truth in fundamental terms is not an easy process in the reality of mankind's frame of reference, even in the most intellectual environments. In many respects, humanity tends to elevate the intellectual acumen of a few more dedicated individuals that seek a course of academic pursuits while the majority are intellectually lazy or are content to function in the more pedestrian avenues of finding the joy or happiness (not necessarily interchangeable) in mere mundane activities like eating, drinking, resting (in some form of relaxation) or reveling in recreational exercises that seek to find the increase of stimulation in challenging teh extremes. Fundamentalism can be found in both, for fundamentally, humanity does not seek truth in such things if truth does not fulfill the basics of self-seeking satisfaction. Question: what happened to volumes 4 through 6? Did the curiosity of the subject matter fall fundamentally short?
