this guy is quite amazing he seems so kind, and what he says about the unification of faiths/religions interests me. I mean that would be amazing because i think you would need a level of rationality and and progressive thinking to try and build bridges, or to even unify religion. It would be such a monumental reform but obviously it would be gradual not something overnight, and it could occur best with an increased belonging in society i mean where inter faith people can mix together, i am an ex muslim, and i can say that people who are religious tend to be more kinder to me [this could be hard to apply to muslims] and i feel this is why it could work; if they could stop trying to highlight the contradictions with each other and increase that sense of belonging through wanting to understand and finding commonalities than why not but then the idea of recognition of jesus from jews and the same with muhammad from Christians seems quite unlikely.

However it would definitely require some rationality and post structuralist thinking to unify the faiths, and with such an intellectual basis you can make the argument that interpretation of scripture will be from a more mature perspective thus reducing the violent reactions from religious thinking

i hate the harry potter films, HOWEVER the books are the only reason i am alive today, my father being a muslim used to torture me, but it was when i found the books around the age of 12-14 that i could escape and endure whatever he threw at me (even if i read the first book within a day the prospect of the next kept me sane and gave me a goal), no matter how much i wanted the potter world to be true (fantasing about multiple universe with one that had a law physics that linked conciousness to matter in some way lol) i never let that permeate into my rationality it was just some humourous fantasy that i kept to my self - knowing always that it was just a fantasy. So i really hope dakwings does not find anything unintentionally (from rowling) dangerous from potter books
