What are the presumptive stories that set human beings in a hierarchical relationship that is both separate and above?  In what ways has religion and our notions of God contributed to this narrative? To see how we participate in these stories it is necessary to penetrate the stories of our human culture that have led to religious fundamentalism, racism, sexism, slavery, class inequality, species dominance, overpopulation and polluting the planet. Readings to be discussed include Sapiens and Homo Deus by Yuval Harari, Ishmael by Daniel Quinn, Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond, and Kibbutz: Socialism’s Last Stand by Joshua Muravchik
