I’ve come up with this incredible scientific theory that I believe can be proved. I believe that when rabbits procreate, they have baby rabbits. That when tigers procreate they birth tigers. Armadillos beget armadillos. I know I’m out there on this one, but work with me.
I believe that the ingredients have a lot to do with the end result of a particular recipe. If you use the ingredients for apple pie, most of the time you won’t get brownies. What goes in comes out.
I think the same could be said of a religion. The future direction and tone of a religion can be indicated by the manner and tone of the one who birthed it. If the founder was a murdering, head lopping, child marrying, extortionist who conquered a good portion of the globe, than perhaps the resulting religion will tend to a warring one. And not a religion of peace.
