Army Of Monkeys Build Bridge, Then Fling Poo From It

27 03 2008

As Reported in BBC News

The Indian government has withdrawn a controversial report submitted in court which questioned the existence of the Hindu god Ram. The report was withdrawn after huge protests by opposition parties.The report was presented to the Supreme Court on Wednesday in connection with a case against a proposed shipping canal project between India and Sri Lanka.

Hindu hardliners say the project will destroy what they say is a bridge built by Ram and his army of monkeys. (emphasis added)

Scientists and archaeologists say the Ram Setu (Lord Ram’s bridge) – or Adam’s Bridge as it is sometimes called – is a natural formation of sand and stones.

Honestly, I have about 20 clever comments I could make about this but they all pale when you realize there are people out there seriously claiming they have a bridge built by Ram and his army of monkeys.

Does someone want to remind me again how religion isn’t suppressing our critical thinking faculties?
