And breath! Ahhhh. It’s good to make a new start don’t you think?

“They never admit how they have come to stop taking it literally. You have all these people criticising us for our crass literalism, where as fundamentalists are fundamentalists and yet these moderates don’t admit how they have come to be moderate. What does moderation consist of, it consists of having lost faith in all of these propositions, or half of them, because of the hammer blows of science and secular politics. Religion has lost its mandate on a thousand questions and moderates tend to argue that this is somehow a triumph of faith, faith is somehow self enlightening, where as really it is being enlightened from outside.” Sam Harris

Wham bam thank you Sam.
