Plutarch tells the story of Alexander the Great who came upon Diogenes looking attentively at a heap of human bones.
“What are you looking for?” asked Alexander.
“Something that I cannot find,” said the philosopher.
“And what is that?”
“The difference between your father’s bones and those of his slaves.”
The following are just as indistinguishable: Catholic bones from Protestant bones. Hindu from Muslims bones, Arab bones from Israeli bones, Russian bones from American bones.
The enlightened fail to see the difference even when the bones are clothed in flesh!
