Fundamentalism...

I am not so keen on Fundamentalists, even though I have a strong penchant for Fundamentals. I just happen to believe that fundamentalists, have nothing of the fundamentals, hence my dislike for the former.

I suppose I start out from the premise, that if you are convinced in your heart of hearts, you don't need to demonstrate that extra zeal to make up for what is essentially a lack of conviction. Besides I think they just hold the stick from the wrong end...i.e upside down. And I also believe no one has full monopoly over the Truth, the GENERAL Truth. Your personal truth you keep to yourself. To be respected, and you owe respect in return.

Besides one extremism always calls for another...I am essentially for the Middle Path.
