Why would man rather kill a neighbour than modify a belief?

Do any scientists examine why man (with a few notable exceptions) would rather kill a neighbour than modify a belief?

  1. I think here that this is all about tribal loyalty. People form and are born into tribal groups with their own customs, language and beliefs. The ‘neighbour’ you are referring to probably is not perceived as belonging to the tribe. The binding in the tribe is very strong and was essential for the survival of the group in ancient society. The belief of a person that was contrary to the tribe threatened the group and was thus considered hostile. Modern man still has loyalty to his perceived tribe.
