"Once the religious - or spiritual - experience has been encountered, it needs no further justification. If it has any true power, it is experienced as a higher form of knowing, and cannot be undermined by someone else's logic, or someone else's facts."

Precisely the mindset of those those who fly planes into buildings; those fathers who kill their own daughters; brothers who kill their own sisters; mothers who mutilate their daughters genitals; one group who seizes land and expels another group from it; those who persecute and discriminate against those of a different sexual orientation or different skin color; those who don't understand that though you might be entitled to your own opinions you are not entitled to your own facts and if the facts you base your opinions on are flawed so will your opinions be.
