The Easter Island heads.

This just goes to show that we don't know NEARLY as much as we should about our world.

yeah, that's no newsflash. 

yeah, that's no newsflash.  i mean, the people in that photo are clearly out of the late '70s, early '80s.  

you can see how they were probably meant to look because a group of archeologists restored a few of them some years ago.  they stood on pedestals, had big striking eyes, and strange cylindrical hats on their heads.  they originally formed a perimeter around the island, facing out to sea like sentries.

 

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."
--Hunter S. Thompson

Comment section is also an

Comment section is also an interesting read. One guy said this practice desemated the islands forest and that lead to no heat, etc. until eventually the people died out. If true that makes an interesting study showing our dependence on a sky daddy, whoops I mean on our environment is critical.

Religion Kills !!!

Numbers 31:17-18 - Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.
