But is a support of the creationist understanding of Genisis central to all christians fundamentalist and not? Is the same true of Islam's reverence of Mohamed.

Michael Kruse

I think for some creationist to many fundies (not all) just as degree of reverence of Mohammed is more for some thatn others. Like any analogy I don't think it is a perfect parallel. I think the point Harris makes is just because a group passionately believes something does that obligate others silence themselves when they disagree. We don't go out of our way to offend what about speaking about truth as we see it?
