Tell them soul-suckin' preachers to come on down and see

By now, you've all heard this.

It is a great, great time for us, the most distrusted minority. Heh.

Can't help but think of the song, all day yesterday and today... One of my very favorites by Bruce, a Christian...go figure.

Part man, part monkey
(Springsteen)

They prosecuted some poor sucker in these United States
for teachin’ that man descended from the apes
They coulda settles that case without a fuss or fight
If they’d seen me chasin’ you sugar
Thru the jungle last night

They’d a called in that jury and a one two three said
‘Part man part monkey, definitely’
Well the church bell rings from the corner steeple
Man in a monkey suit swears he’ll do no evil
Offers his lover’s prayer but his soul lies
Dark and driftin and unsatisfied

Well hey bartender tell me what’d ya see
Part man part monkey looks like to me

Well the night is dark the moon is full
The flowers of romance exert their pull
We talk a while my fingers slip
I’m hard and cracking like a whip

Well did God make man in a breath of holy fire
Or did he crawl on up out of the muck and mire
Well the man on the street
Believes what the bible tells him so
But you can ask me mister because I know

Tell them soul-suckin’ preachers to come on down and see
Part man part monkey, baby that’s me

Bri, come now. Belief in god or God or a whatever outside of our physical world doesn' t mean the denial of evolution. Nor will this discovery convince all the crazy creationists, afterall there's a hella lot of evidence for evolution besides and that ain't done it yet.

I'm tired of persecution complexes, no matter where they come from.

P.S. You heard of the new Gospel of Judas, yes?
