Well, at least the never ending fundie quest for suppression of truth isn't confined to the U.S. I wonder...was that little tidbit reported in any American newswires?

Maybe they would rather people not observe the evidence. Because you can't observe the evidence for God. So this might put them on equal terms, or make them feel better because it's not in their faces, or immediant thoughts.

 

"The Christian community here is very uncomfortable that Leakey and his group want their theories presented as fact,"

 

I am very uncomfortable about what the Christian community presents as fact.

 

"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."

 

For one thing, it's a theory based on facts so it is factual so, what exactly do they have to present? Is it fact?

 

 

 

 

 

The disingenious xian strikes again.

If Christians weren't such liars, this wouldn't be so "tricky" at all. :Doh:

Yep just as I have long asserted. When Christians hear the word "evolution" they think "monkey". They are not thinking of a process of change that applies to all creatures equally. All they can see is that the theory implies that man is an animal amongst animals. They have no appreciation of the magnificence of what has transpired here on Earth... and likely elsewhere.

Great! Then we're in agreement. So what's the problem? :HaHa:
