Very nice. I would like to read/see more about Steven Weinberg and the friend (now dead, apparently) who tried to bring science to islamic universities, and had trouble, due to the corrosive nature of science on religion. I also liked Daniel Dennett and his suggestion that the abrahamic religions (and others) were designed, so to speak, to be beyond proof by the scientific method, which only came along much later. Folk religions don't have this feature, nor do they have the concept of faith. That had not occurred to me before.
