Aren't religious wars actually wars about territory then? Kosovo could be either, an ethnic thing or a Serb territory thing. Maybe scientists should tribe up, and start taking territory off religious people. We'd be better at inventing and operating weapons. Actually that's quite scary: is it still the case worldwide that the science tribe on balance works for religious masters? Like, scientists make stuff for leaders who conduct wars against gangs /from other religions/? Ugh.
