Well, this should come as no surprise. Looks like the missionaries that went about spreading the good news in Africa, did a nice job. It's the same tactics they are using here and spreading all over the World. First you feed them, then you indoctrinate them.

Quite right, starve the bastards.

From the article:
"Our doctrine is not that we evolved from apes, and we have grave concerns that the museum wants to enhance the prominence of something presented as fact which is just one theory."

Okay, then how about presenting some fossil evidence for your doctrine that can be placed alongside the fossil evidence for evolution?

I find this tactic to be very familiar, from the article:


Bishop Adoyo said all the country's churches would unite to force the museum to change its focus when it reopens after 18 months of renovations in June next year.

"We will write to them, we will call them, we will make sure our people know about this and we will see what we can do to make our voice known," he said.


These Fundie nuts won't be happy until we are back to the Dark Ages. What's next? perhaps all fossil evidence that the Earth is actually more than 6,000 years old, retired to museum back rooms?

All fossils were buried by the Jews in 1927.

Isn't it enough to simply feed them? I'll have the Happy Meal, please; no sermon, and supersize the fries.

That's utterly ridiculous. All the Jews were busy baking Christian babies into pies in 1927. Any fossil burial would have taken place in 1912, between the 1911 meeting of the Elders of Zion (to update their Protocols) and 1913, when they began putting all that salt in the Dead Sea, which was previously known as the Bustling With Life Sea. After that they were booked solid with Global Conspiracy.

And, if you go to the site, at the bottom is another important article about a very brave and rational man: Kirop Lagat. Click on and read it for some needed logic/rationality in another area. ('Stolen' treasures better
