Other not-so-well known scientists have denounced this claim.
Nothing says peace like 60 dead Palestinians.The reason that peace has been so difficult to maintain in the Middle East is that the land known as Palestine has a VERY long history.For starters, the region was among the earliest in the world to see human habitation, agricultural communities and civilization.
About 20 years ago, I came across a profound article about the Four Irreligions. I wish I could direct you to the original source, but it seems not to be easily found. The four irreligions can be better said as “the state when a religion strays too far away from its original message.
