Scientist Fights Church Effort to Hide Museum's Pre-Human Fossils

Famed paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey is giving no quarter to powerful evangelical church leaders who are pressing Kenya's national museum to relegate to a back room its world-famous collection of hominid fossils showing the evolution of humans' early ancestors.

Leakey called the churches' plans "the most outrageous comments I have ever heard."

"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," the bishop said.

You're fucking doctrine? Are you out of your minds?? (Wait, don't answer that) Let me try to get through this as calmly as possible here.

Where in the fuck do you people get off trying to act like you have a problem with one theory being presented as fact? How can one possibly use the phrase "it's not or doctrine" and seriously attempt in the same sentence to talk about your supposed problem with one theory being presented as fact.

First of all, first of all, what a strong theory you must have if you feel you need to censor information that contradicts your "theory". Second of all, stop talking about the word theory as though it's just something you can make up on a whim -- only religion holds that precious description.

If you're cult is pissed that someone is providing information that contradicts your "doctrine", fine, at least have the balls to admit it. But don't sit there for one second and try to pretend you have a problem with "one theory" being taught as fact. Don't for one second try to pretend like you're just being noble to step in and correct this erroneous practice of teaching one theory as fact and turn around in the same breath tell me that the Bible is the inerrant word of god and I'll burn in hell if I don't believe it.

These people are amazing. It doesn't get better than this folks.

Nice: vulgarity AND bad grammar (i think you mean "your" not "you're"). Truly a winning combination to put forward an argument. good luck.
