The whole "your brand of bronze age throwback barbarism isn't the same as mine so I'm gonna blow up your stuff" thing is kind of hilarious but I wish, as an armchair historian, they'd keep it to relatively new and mass-produced things.

Your are correct. There is no way an atheist can be bothered by some mud and plaster. What bothers me as an atheist though, in addition to trolly pickle-kissers like you, is one group forcing it's religion and beliefs on another at any expense. So that bothers me. It bothers me for these muslims at the hands of a more oppressive group and it bothers me because knowing human nature, there are many sects of foolish bible thumping cocks in the US that would do this in a heartbeat to me for being an atheist or any other sect diagree with.

Thanks for all the hard work spreading our religion so here is some special destruction of your holy shrines just for you, blasphemers!

All this over rules written by a bunch of misogynistic sheep herders who wanted to make it difficult for their women to screw around while they were off screwing around. Oh, and they threw in some basic Sun God worship for shiats and giggles to give it some mystic magical flavor.

You are correct and I wont say it doesn't bother me as it does. But it rates less compared to the things happening to the people for these reasons.

The hardline Islamists who seized control of Timbuktu along with the rest of northern Mali three months ago

While they're seizing ancient cities whose economic importance has diminished, we should tell them about Detroit.

At least Katmandu is still firmly controlled by The Silver Bullet Band.

I'm an atheist, but I like history.

In any event, I will be amused by the righteous indignation from people that have never heard of any of these monuments and as of five minutes ago never cared at all about them.


I've not heard of this particular monument and as they say, "Out of sight, out of mind." That being said, I'm pretty sure we confirmed the Taliban are a bunch of dickbags a decade or so back, so my righteous indignation isn't exactly new here, nor do I think I'm disqualified from these beliefs by having ignorance about this particular site until now.

Some religious zealots can't wait for the chance to trash this one.

Ironically, those same religious zealots can't walk there, because it's still considered holy ground... where they kept the Holy of Holies.

Went anyway - "On September 28, the Israeli opposition leader Ariel Sharon together with a Likud party delegation surrounded by hundreds of Israeli riot police, visited the Temple Mount. Al-Aqsa Mosque is part of the compound and is widely considered the third holiest site in Islam."

Diogenes: There's nothing quite like trying to minimize the power of icons by destroying them out of hate, fear, and ignorance.


Actuallly destroying history is a common way of destroying legitamacy and power.

The Persian Empire was one of the largest and longest lasting empires in the history of the world. However Persian kings often declared their right to rule through their ancestry which was either through gods or blessed by gods. When a new dynasty took over they would destroy the history (written records, monuments, etc.) of the previous dynasty so that nobody could claim the ancestry that made them a legitimate candidate for king. Thus there is very little surviving history of the empire, and the standard history is Shahnameh - the Book of Kings was written around 1000 AD not long after the Muslim takeover of the region.

Rainbow Warrior Sea... what?
 
2012-07-03 12:43:33 PM  
After they knocked down the door, they cautiously peeked inside. Suddenly a Geraldo Rivera appeared in the doorway grinning. He said nothing and just climbed out of the vault. Then another appeared in the doorway and another and another.

One hundred Geraldos emerged from the temple. This scared one of the Taliban and he grabbed a saber and slashed at Geraldo number one hundred, cutting him neatly in two. From the two halves formed two new Geraldos!

The Taliban were scared. Another fighter took and RPG and shot it at another Geraldo. He was blown to smithereens. And every bit of the Geraldo formed a separate, brand new Geraldo.

They shot at the Geraldos with their AK 47s, they threw grenades at them. Whenever a chunk of Geraldo fell off, up sprang a brand new Geraldo. The Geraldos just stood there, smiling as their numbers doubled and tripled.

The Taliban knew they were doomed and quickly turned their guns on each other. They all died painfully and slowly. The thousands of Geraldos saw that there was no story in this and turned and walked away.

The UNESCO team watched from a distance. They sent in a SWAT team of Archeologists who quickly reassembled the door and sealed the mosque. They then buried the mosque under a mountain of acetate.

The Head of UNESCO turned to his scientist, John McClain. "What about these Geraldos? Even if they don't replicate any more, there are still enough to destroy the world." McClain replied cooly: "Don't you worry, buddy. I got this covered." He then spoke one word in to his walkie talkie and told the Head of UNESCO to watch the Geraldos.

A CH-47 Chinook suddenly appeared over the horizon leaking transmission fluid and shedding parts both of which a healthy shiathook is known to do. Beneath on a sling was a large black box. The Head of UNESCO saw the writing on the box and became relieved. The world would be saved.

The shiathook flew over the Geraldos and the began getting excited and jabbering amongst themselves. The followed the helicopter down the road to the ocean. The shiathook hovered as best it could right off shore and the flight engineer, surprisingly sober for the time of day, released the sling and the huge box fell in to the sea. The Geraldos cried in anguish and ran in to the sea. All were drowned.

The Head of UNESCO shook John McClains hand. "You saved the world. You and Al Capone's vault. John, I want to offer you your UNESCO Police badge back."

"It wasn't the first time I saved this rock," John replied. "But you can keep your badge. I aint interested in protecting antiquities." He then climbed aboard a massive motorcycle and gunned the engine. Shelly O. Gasm suddenly appeared and jumped on the back of the motorcycle. "I'm only interested in proctectin' these titties" John said with a smile.

"Bye daddy" said Shelly to the Head of UNESCO and John gunned the motorcycle and took off down the road.

But down by the ocean, a lone Geraldo emerged from the rocks. He had fallen during the lemming-esque rush to the ocean and knocked himself out. In fact, it looked like he had been hit by a chair. He forgot why he had been rushing to the ocean. He brushed some blood from his face and every speck of blood became another Geraldo. They headed in to the city. Looking for that one big story.

If the American religious a-holes get the power to do so, it's a sure thing that after they've rounded up the gays and the non-Christians, they'll start on their fellow Christians who aren't their kind of Christian, probably starting with the Catholics.

Harry Freakstorm: After they knocked down the door, they cautiously peeked inside. Suddenly a Geraldo Rivera appeared in the doorway grinning. He said nothing and just climbed out of the vault. Then another appeared in the doorway and another and another.

One hundred Geraldos emerged from the temple. This scared one of the Taliban and he grabbed a saber and slashed at Geraldo number one hundred, cutting him neatly in two. From the two halves formed two new Geraldos!

The Taliban were scared. Another fighter took and RPG and shot it at another Geraldo. He was blown to smithereens. And every bit of the Geraldo formed a separate, brand new Geraldo.

They shot at the Geraldos with their AK 47s, they threw grenades at them. Whenever a chunk of Geraldo fell off, up sprang a brand new Geraldo. The Geraldos just stood there, smiling as their numbers doubled and tripled.

The Taliban knew they were doomed and quickly turned their guns on each other. They all died painfully and slowly. The thousands of Geraldos saw that there was no story in this and turned and walked away.

The UNESCO team watched from a distance. They sent in a SWAT team of Archeologists who quickly reassembled the door and sealed the mosque. They then buried the mosque under a mountain of acetate.

The Head of UNESCO turned to his scientist, John McClain. "What about these Geraldos? Even if they don't replicate any more, there are still enough to destroy the world." McClain replied cooly: "Don't you worry, buddy. I got this covered." He then spoke one word in to his walkie talkie and told the Head of UNESCO to watch the Geraldos.

A CH-47 Chinook suddenly appeared over the horizon leaking transmission fluid and shedding parts both of which a healthy shiathook is known to do. Beneath on a sling was a large black box. The Head of UNESCO saw the writing on the box and became relieved. The world would be saved.

The shiathook flew over the Geraldos and the began getting excited and jabbering amongst them ...

Wait. I got it.

We take all the rubble from all the destroyed ancient things, and we use them to make on really big ancient-thing-rubble statue/building/whatever.

Then everyone that wants to destroy it will be too busy fighting each other over who gets to blow it up. When the last group is standing, we let them go at it, because let's face it, they really wanted it more.

Then we take the rubble from that ancient-thing pile, and repeat until we run out of terrorists/hate groups/rouge nations/pancake houses/radical religion nuts/etc.

When they're all gone, we use what little bits of these blown-up things to make a nice bed for a walking path, and put some nice trees along it for shade.

Burn a bible = Fark Cheers
Threaten to burn a koran = Death threats

Christian / Jew killed = Fark nazi cheers.
Islamic terrorist boo-booed = Death threats and "that's rayyyyycist".


Destroy anything from the Judeo-Christian sects = Cheers
Destroy anything from the religion of global terrorism = feigned poutrage.

In any event, wiping out anything historical only hurts us as a whole.

In 200 words or less, how does the destruction of that pile of rocks hurt 7 billion people? Lost knowledge? Define which knowledge was lost beyond "wow, they could already use tool x which we also have".


It's called history. Many folks on Fark have been told to read some (especially in religious threads) so it might be something important. As for knowledge lost, each researcher hopes to find something new, which - at this site in Timbuktu - is now made impossible, depending on the level of destruction. We'll never know what might be lost.

To quote some webpage:

In archaeology and library research you can make a claim based on the easy pickings that lie on the surface or you can break into a sweat as you dig deeper. But it is not enough to dig deep. You must sift every spadeful, and sift it fine. Truth is most often found in the tiniest of grains: it is easy to miss if you don't focus intently.

One day the hinges rusted shut. The caretaker couldn't be bothered to fix it since spare parts were pretty hard to come by in Timbuktu, so he concocted a story that if the door was ever opened it would be the end of the world. Problem solved.

Most of the "knowledge" found during archaeological digs or surveys can be easily classified as "trivia." Like I said, knowing that some people 500 years ago preferred their coffee black, ate grains or were average stone workers (made up facts) based on the quality of the structure, contents of stomachs and pots is completely irrelevant outside of a game of Trivial Pursuit or a pub quiz. The further back you go, the more trivial data found becomes. Who cares how people in the stone age made boats? If you really thought it was vital knowledge to know how to build things with basic tools you should go to the various tribes that exist today and see how they do it instead of guessing based on the scuff marks on a hollowed out tree. Archaeology and history are not professions but hobbies people happen to be paid for.

As for the saying that people who forget history are doomed to repeat it, it wasn't a lack of knowledge of history that caused the wars of the last few decades. Or the atrocities committed. I'm even willing to state that a knowledge of history is what keeps quite a few tensions between various factions alive throughout the ages.

These farking savages are destroying Timbuktu, one of the great Islamic cities of antiquity. However, the cosmopolitan realm of the great Muslim king, Mansa Musa, complete with the Kouroukan Foga, which was a constitution (not the most progressive, but hey, having a constitution of any kind was pretty impressive back then) was too enlightened for these modern barbarians.

This is why the Islamic world has to rise up and put these farking cretins down. If they get Egypt, they'll destroy the mosques of Cairo. If they get Turkey, they'll tear down the Hagia Sophia and the Suleimanye. If they get Iran, they'll raze Isfahan because of Shi'ism.

optional: This is why the Islamic world has to rise up and put these farking cretins down.


All the money is centered in a handful of houses. Most of the people in the Islamic world don't have the cash, the guns, or the interest to be more than a bystander when someone elses war happens on their front lawn.
Their world is closer to feudalism than anything we understand.

I'd wager that the guy with the pretty teeth is a military tourist who's using daddy's cash to fund his part in this little skirmish (note the nice cloths, freshly minted guns). The temple attacks are just to demonstrate how little power the local government has.
He doesn't know or care what cultural value they have to anyone.
The final intent is probably to make the locals worship a new God-on-earth who happens to be his cousin, so what's it matter if an old temple is destroyed?
He'll make a new one.

They didn't actually blow it up intentionally. It was simply set ablaze from the light reflected off of their perfectly mirrored teeth.

Yeah, I was gonna say: since when did fundamentalist savages have such PERFECTLY WHITE TEETH!??

al Qaeda must have one hell of a dental plan. Maybe I should sign up.


Could it be that they're covered under the CIA plan?


...which is a government plan, which is part of Obamacare.

Exactly why is wrong that we are putting people like this down for dirt naps? You would do the same with a rabid dog.

Dude looks like an Ewok. I though they were on our side?

Also, this reminds me of the jizzmopper Taliban destroying the giant Buddha statues in Afghanistan. What pointless destruction of beautiful, historically meaningful work...


The Ewoks FOUGHT the huge evil empire that tried to police the galaxy. Why would they be any different in reality?

I am predict the future - the taliban did this RIGHT BEFORE 9-11-01

And yet so many Farkers/Liters view the Taliban as 'no big deal'.

10% (at least) of Islam has declared war on the West and other non-believers. That's approximately 100 million people.

As for Billco the viterol aimmed at him shows that Farkers have no grasp on current events and - as many claim to be atheists - seem to only hate Christianity for events that occurred centuries ago but refuse to hold Islam accountable for its actions in the 21st century: slavery, attacks on non-believers, honor killings, terrorism, the oppression of women.

You should be ashamed of yourselves for your hypocracy but then you all voted for Obama, too, so apparently you have no shame.

I don't know where the hell you get your delusions, dude, but apparently you've missed the many threads of people condemning Islam for the things they've done. Are you sure you're not on Bizarro Fark?

Great teeth. I guess this alleged 5th World cave dweller must have had a good dental plan when he was growing up. Nice fake beard as well... Hmmm?

theMagni: Dirtybird971: I'd love to know the back story to this Mosque.

Why did it need to be sealed until then?
The last guy in, did he die?
What about the bricklayer who sealed the door?
What did they find?
A shrine to whom?

Inside was a 10" plate, about 1/2" thick, sort of a yin-yang / sinusoid symbol, half black, half white, made out of some kind of ceramic. We couldn't get any of our tools to even scrape the surface to get some for the spectrometer. Weird thing is that it was totally clean.


That belongs in the Tower for study and safekeeping!

So, once again the Muslims are attacked by their age-old, sworn enemies, the Muslims.
These dudes already got the beards. If somebody would just teach them fiddle music they'd be a large-scale version of the Hatfields and McCoys.
