On Sectarian Narrowness of Thinking
Sects are religious associations of people whose worldview differ significantly from the true knowledge about God, His Evolution, and our responsibilities in this regard.
Moreover, the more primitive the sect, the more aggressively behave its leaders in relation to other religious associations: they have to keep in obedience and retain their “flock”! Because such leaders are “fed” financially from their duped adherents.

I thankfully and politely declined the present and offered to take in response my brochure “Our Meaning of Life”.
“Here,” — I said, — “the answer to the question, put in your book!”
… But they… recoiled and waved their hands:
