Too dumb to be dhimmi

Not only does John McBride not know the history of the Middle East, but he isn't even interested in it.

One need look no further than the Middle East and Israel's battle with Islam and Islam's battle with Judaism to be totally baffled by human nature and to cause one to doubt the outcome of humanity's struggle to survive.
Baffled John doesn't know what the big fuss is about. No religion is any better than the other. No political establishment is worthy of support if some other one wants to take it over.
Both sides human, neither side "needing" Judaism or Islam to survive, and both sides willing to kill the other and to sacrifice their own to defend the "righteousness" of their position just as Christianity and countless religions and political establishments have before our time, and perhaps will continue to do after us.
Note that Baffled John doesn't even believe in defending oneself.
In other words, let's propose that I'm raised Christian, and then encounter Islam, and Islam encounters me. Islam prevails and I refuse to change or Christianity prevails and Islam refuses to change or neither prevails over a third religion and both refuse to change. Neither is necessary since Buddhism works fine, too. And Buddhism isn't necessary either. Nothing is really necessary in place of religion from an evolutionary perspective if it begins to threaten survival since it is a secondary tool for survival, not a primary tool. And even as a secondary tool it evolved in many places in many different forms readily changeable as conversion to any other "philosophy" frequently exhibits.

Food is primary. Air is really primary. Water. Shelter. Procreation. Sleep. Recreation.

What? You want to take over my country? Change my laws? Change my belief system?

Oakley doakley. Take my sister, take my mother ... Just don't take my X-box!

Baffled John is a sorry creature whose "philosophy" of survival can be summed up thusly:

When threatened with rape, just lay back and enjoy it. And don't forget to tip your rapist afterwards.

Thank (Whatever) for the Enlightenment and the Reformation!

Too bad those movements never had much impact on the Muslim world.
