Perhaps we are more similar than we might think?

There was a funny juxtaposition of two large youth groups volunteering at the food bank earlier in the week; one a summer church program (Summer Stretch) and the other a camp serving atheists, agnostics and fee-thinkers (Camp Quest). Yet, if one was to look at these groups of kids it would be hard to discern which was which, without taking a clue from their red or orange t-shirts.

The pastor at our church on Sunday reminded us at human genes were 99.5 - 99.9% alike. So, while we often tend to focus on how were are unlike other groups, for the most part we are indeed quite similar.
