AMERICA'S ESTABLISHED RELIGION AND THE DESTRUCTION OF HISTORY | 2001-03-17
The whole world is upset because Moslem fundamentalists in Afghanistan are ordering the destruction of huge pre-Moslem statues of Buddha. They are the biggest statues on earth, says the US, and they are part of history.
The ruling group in Afghanistan says those statues offend their faith and must be destroyed.
The UN has protested, the US has protested, and so forth.
Recently, the body of the Kennewick Man was discovered in the United States. Anthropologists noted that Kennewick, 1) was older than any American Indian skeleton, and 2) he bore no relation whatever to American Indians.
Scientists wanted to study him. Indians wanted to get rid of him.
You see, the Kennewick Man was a threat to AMERICA'S established religion, which is Political Correctness and white racial guilt. If the Indians were just one more group of invaders taking America from the people of the Kennewick Man, all the white racial guilt they get money out of might be threatened.
So the Indians said they had the right to bury Kennewick Man because of their religion.
The US Government agreed, and buried Kennewick beyond the reach of anthropology.
If anybody complains about what the Moslems did with the statues in Afghanistan, we should mention the superstition that hid the Kennewick Man from science.
