It seems to me that the older I get the less I understand about the human need for conflict. Of course in the hunter gatherer stage of our development we needed to kill or be killed in order to survive. But now, delving into different beliefs it seems we all seek after a ‘spiritual truth’. We all have a need to find the ‘light’ that will illuminate our reason for existing. Why do we not concentrate on our similarities rather than our differences. Variety is the spice of life and it would be awful if  we were all the same but I don’t see a need to kill over belief. I doubt we will ever get rid of greed and of course that is the cause of much conflict but why add to our ills by throwing faith into the mix. It should bind us together as we search for answers rather than split us apart.
