I can hardly believe that anyone would be stupid enough to condemn an exhibition of some of the oldest and finest hominid fossils in the world. But that's exactly what this idiot, Bishop Boniface Adoyo (stupid name warning!), is trying to do by drumming up feeling amongst other peddlers of mediaeval superstition in an attempt to have the exhibition "removed or, at least, moved to a less prominent location"!
Here's a real money quote from the man himself:
"When museums put it out there that man evolved from apes, theologically they are affecting many people who are Christians, who believe God created us,"
"It's creating a big weapon against Christians that's killing our faith," he said, calling the evolution theory an "insult" and dangerous to youths.
"When children go to museums they'll start believing we evolved from these apes. This is not the truth,"
I'm sorry? Did I read that correctly? (!) Let's just repeat a few of those alarmingly absurd phrases, shall we?
"he said, calling the evolution theory an "insult" and dangerous to youths"
For a start Darwin's work is no longer a "theory". The entire biosphere is testament to the truth of his work. It should be called "Darwin's law" and I shall henceforth refer to it as such. Secondly, how is the truth going to be dangerous to "youths"? Are they incapable of dealing with "the truth"? (I could rant on but I think I've made my point.)
"It's creating a big weapon against Christians that's killing our faith"
It may be killing your faith, sunshine, but that's because your faith is based on a bunch of fairy tales. Get some sense you twat.
"When children go to museums they'll start believing we evolved from these apes"
So when children go to museum's they will learn stuff about the world they live in. Yeah. Really bad, that is.
I am happy to consider such absurd ejaculations to be a marker of religion's impending fall from grace. It can only be a matter of time before the rationalist movement gains further footholds amongst the world's ignorants through the presentation of incontrovertible fact. I fear, however that blood may be shed in its pursuit.
