    Not to devalue your point in the previous words before this sentence...

    but there totally are cultures like that. I think they were natives of the Amazon; I'll see if I can find that from my religions of the world notes tomorrow.

    a quote from someone else having this discussion with me on another board (but, framed about a literal vs. non-literal interpretation of Genesis) fits well for what I described in my longer, previous post.

    If the Bible is 100% true and error-free then it has to be literal if that is how we read it independent of outside influences. If we go and change the Bible because of some evidence it places us on an unstable footing. It means that we could believe that the resurrection did not occur if there was some evidence refuting it. If we reinterpret Genesis why not the rest of the Bible? How do we rely on any of the Bible?

    Actually, I can see that. I have heard about things like that. That aside, I still think humans are more alike than not. In most societies you do see people building communities, raising families, instilling work ethic and survival skills in the young, making friendships, etc. Even if your society does eat their own babies and wage war every five minutes, it's probably in the interest of their own survival, right?

    I am interested to hear about your savage, rapacious Amazonian society, haha. And also a bit frightened.
