BillCo: Meh, they are just destroying a religious symbol. No harm, no foul, right atheists?


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.

Ha! And you guys think Christians are bad? If Muslims had their way, they would kill every last one of you..unless you are a practicing Muslim of course...and even then, the fact that you left your Muslim homeland would be grounds for beheading itself. Be happy you only have Christians to deal with.

...now control two-thirds of Mali's desert north, territory that includes the regions of Gao, Kidal and Timbuktu.

The size of the area under their control is bigger than France, heightening fears that Mali will become a jihadist haven.


Yes but did you notice, a few words ago IN YOUR OWN ARTICLE, how they control desert? Which is by definition, deserted? Sensationalist crapheads.

rudemix: BillCo: Meh, they are just destroying a religious symbol. No harm, no foul, right atheists?

Your are correct. There is no way an atheist can be bothered by some mud and plaster.


Um... dead wrong. There is a lot of history and culture bound up in "mud and plaster" and paint and metal all over the world... much of which was constructed for religious reasons. I hope that we get past religion one day, but I'd never destroy its artifacts. Understanding where we came from as a civilization is as important as where we're going.

Mansa Musa is turning in his grave, assuming Ansar Dine haven't gotten to it yet...

Sadly the far-right Islamists have done this before:

But so have far-right Hindus:

And I bet far-right Christians, Jews, Buddhists, etc have done similar acts.

I just submitted the same article and when I refreshed the page yours was at the top of the feed.

My headline wasn't any better tho -
"Remember the guys that Dynamited the Buddas
back in 2001? Well, they're blowing shiat up again (0)"

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?

El Brujo: Neanderthals breaking neanderthal things.


Neanderthals ate cooked vegetables, buried their dead with flowers and were most likely wiped out by the Cro Mags who didn't absorb them through interbreeding.

Quit giving Neanderthals a bad name.

Rent Party: This is a justifiable reason to hunt these people down and kill them.


Personally, I'm getting tired of the killing in the world, but this... this is like they dynamiting of the Hindu carvings. It's not just a crime against Hinduism, it's a crime against humanity, because it's the destruction of something we all share and admire.

At least it's not as depressing as reading how when Rome got sacked the invaders destroyed many of their documents and records.

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

I find it extremely ironic that the Sufi Muslims are being killed off by more hardcore Muslims considering the Sufis spread Islam peacefully to more people across the globe than any marching Arabian army ever did. 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.

My Sky Fairy can beat up your Sky Fairy!! Rawr!

Yeah. That's pretty much my take on it. I'm less offended they destroyed an ancient site of religious significance than I am the destroyed a site of historical significance.

There are thousands of monuments that I've never heard of, but as someone that loves and respects history, blowing them up will piss me off every single time.

Exactly. We will never be able to live peacefully until we cull those who simply won't live peacefully from our herd. These asshats are exactly the kind of retrograde morons that need to evolve or die.

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. I'd be devastated if some radical christian sect destroyed Notre Dame in France but for more for the people living under that regime than for the building itself. If that makes sense. I got caught up in BillCo trolly crap.
