Rock Beats scissors, Man Beats Rock

Christian zealots destroy ancient Arctic petroglyphs

This crap pisses me off.

Did you ever hear of The Dorset people? Most people haven't, and I didn't either until I read Jared Diamond's fantastic book, Collapse: How Societies Choose To Fail Or Succeed.

The Dorset were in the arctic long before the Inuits, the eskimos. They didn't leave behind much, only remains of their art. And now some of the best preserved exampled have been damaged because of some religious zealots.

No difference than the Taliban destroying the giant Buddha Statues in Afghanistan.

There is just no reason for it other than unfounded and uneducated beliefs.
