I am sad we cannot just get along and be respectful of our surroundings and of each others’ beliefs.

Here’s something interesting I came across the other day and shared in my Google Reader (which you can subscribe to, like an RSS Feed)

Venn diagram of the US population, the world Muslim population, the overlap, and al-Qaeda.

The al-Qaeda dot had to be sized up tenfold in order to be visible.

If Islam were really a blood-soaked religion and most Muslims really backed al-Qaeda, wouldn’t they have taken us out already?

Full disclosure: I am an atheist, but for me, being an atheist doesn’t mean I can’t understand religion or respect others’ beliefs and convictions. I just try to stay out of religious debates because neither side can “win” when they argue about core beliefs and faith (or lack thereof).
