Lesley Hazleton was writing a biography of Muhammad, she was struck by something: The night he received the revelation of the Koran, according to early accounts, his first reaction was doubt, awe, even fear. And yet this experience became the bedrock of his belief. Hazleton calls for a new appreciation of doubt and questioning as the foundation of faith — and an end to fundamentalism of all kinds. Just like the fundaments of the religion in Salem. America is and will always base our beliefs on these ways of life. I guess you can say this is pretty much what makes America what it is. Were so protective of our country out of fear another might want to take over or declare war, were always in awe because were a country that is constantly innovative and idealistsic.
