    As I said... violence and murder are firmly embedded in collective human Nature. Those who are most commonly perceived as "innocent" are often more vulnerable targets and thus tend to fall in greater numbers.

    The goddess of asstara does. Makes you wonder what kind of person would find such behavior OK, doesn't it? Glad she/he/it doesn't live in my neighborhood. I wonder whether her neighbors are missing any cats or small dogs?

    Murder and violence are firmly embedded in collective human Nature. So is passion, and love... but violence? Anger? Hatred? Maliciousness? These things are one half of who we are as human beings. The ability to embrace, rise above, or become consumed by these things are part of what gives meaning to our lives and makes the human experience as epic as it is.

    You know, you are absolutely right. All of us have the capacity for both good and evil. And our ability to entertain this full range of emotional action and reaction really does make us different from most other animals. But don't you think that as humans, we have not only the ability to move beyond our baser natures, but a societal obligation to do so?

    The ability? Yes. A "societal obligation"? No, I don't. Not me personally, anyway. But you know what? The majority of Muslims do. The majority of Muslims do indeed feel a societal obligation, and an obligation to God, to control and- as you put it- "move beyond their baser Natures".

    Religion can help with that, and in many cases it does. But because of that very Nature, religions have inevitably been also used to encourage violence, torture, murder, etc. Religion, however is not to blame. Individual humans and the choices they make are to blame.

    I don't see it as "good" or "evil". I see death where there is death. I see love where there is love. I see individuals make choices that are responsible for devastation which is often attributed to entire religions... religions which have also been used to encourage peace and happiness
