Last night I watched part one of what looks like it will be a very interesting show on PBS.

Faith and Reason with Bill Moyers. Last night he interviewed Salman Rushdi, and I thought it was quite good.

One of the things Rushdi said that stuck with me was in regard to the currently popular idea that you can't be moral without religion. Morality predates religion. Religion grew from an inate need for humans to create a moral framework for their lives.

The current tide of fundementalism has wrapped the world in it's frame of reference to the point of blindness. It's good to be reminded of the obvious.
