I knew it!
They also prove that Muslim suicide bombers are sexually repressed.....but I think most of us knew that already.
The other key ingredient is the promise of 72 virgins waiting in heaven for any martyr in Islam. The prospect of exclusive access to virgins may not be so appealing to anyone who has even one mate on earth, which strict monogamy virtually guarantees. However, the prospect is quite appealing to anyone who faces the bleak reality on earth of being a complete reproductive loser.
Barnett sums it up well: "So it all comes down to a sense of progress and potential, and that's why I argue most for individual-level connectivity."
