    Nothing productive can come from imagining such a thing.

    I'm a young guy so all I remember is news of Muslim gripes or conflicts always dominating the news. For a region/religion of so little economic consequences (except for oil) the Muslims of the world sure dominate the news. I'm bone weary of dealing with Muslim strife everywhere and I've actually lived in Muslim countries in the Middle East and North Africa. I was a good guest, I didn't criticize my host, but my eyes were open and I don't really like their societies and more importantly I'd just like to live my life here in the West without dealing with their shit all the damn time.

    For some of your people who have more experience in life, when did this Islam focus really begin? Did you hear a lot about Muslims back in the 60s and 70s?

    Imagine a world without Christians or any other religious belief system.

    Your life would very likely be measurably more brutal and harsh if that had happened. The Enlightenment is built on a Christian foundation.

    Christians over the past millenium have been guilty of their fair share of atrocities.

    So is the issue the past or the present? Do you judge the Christian world of today by the events of the past or the present and same with the Muslim world?

    :lol:

    The Enlightenment was based on questioning accepted dogma - religious and otherwise.
