The first thing that struck me about this page is his use of the word "wavelength". That implies two things:
1) The society he lives in has a wave theory of light.
2) They accept that different colours have different wavelengths.
The other thing that struck me is that I agree with him to a large extent: You can tell a lot about people from the stories they tell. That's the main reason that I have minor interest in mythology.
I did allow that his society would have come as far as that, because our own society began figuring it out in the 1300s and got it right in the 1700s, so I figured it was a logical decision since Amova, at least, has reached the industrial stage. And the stories a society tells, at least to me, are its soul!
"The willful blindness that religion brings"
Yeah, because that willful blindness NEVER is seen in people who espouse logic/reason/science to be their criterion. Nope, scientific minds have NEVER blatantly refused and ignored truth that didn't fit the rules they like.
Hey, nobody gets a monopoly on stupidity :D
