Researchers have for the first time witnessed the death of a female orangutan at the hands of another female. Even more extraordinary is that the perpetrator recruited a male orangutan as a hired gun to help her corner and attack the victim. Before this observation, lethal fights between females had never been observed in orangutans; in other primates such fights occur mainly between males
First off, if I saved someone from dying, I wouldn't be bragging about it - certainly not to his relatives.I don't think the woman saved anyone - she "converted" someone to Christianity whilst he was dying - though what that really means and whether it worked, given the circumstances, is debatable.
That aside, there's something else I thought of that I'd like to bring up. Christians like to believe in the stereotype of the "angry atheist". And, however justified, his response comes across as quite angry. Doesn't that play right into the stereotype? As does the nature of the response as well; Christians just love it when they can feel persecuted by those who oppose them.There is room for angry atheists. There is room for people who are outraged at the treatment of their dying father.
|1.||Note the hoopla over total strangers (whose religion might not be Christianity) not saying the correct Christian-approved religious holiday greeting. I saw a bumper sticker that said "It's okay to say Merry Christmas." Who ever said it was not okay? Say it all you want. Say it in the middle of summer for all I care. It's okay to say Eid Mubarak, too. What is not okay is freaking out that someone else may not celebrate or believe in your religious festival.|
