A blog dedicated to the researchers who dyed a captured chimp's fur pink, then released it. The other chimps promptly tore it to pieces.

The Gospel According to Majikthise

And now, our Sermonette:
[Solarin] paints an interesting analogy from a childhood memory.He made a long journey with his mother once, who gave him a "bicycle" to help him finish the journey--which was really just a wheel he had to hit with a stick to keep it going. He says that without the "bicycle" he would never have made the forty mile walk, but upon reflection he realized that he had really carried himself and the bicycle all along. Religion is like that bicycle, Tai says. We only need it when we lack the confidence and determination to face the world alone.

Richard Carrier, Tai Solarin: His Life, Ideas, and Accomplishments, 1995.

Can I get a "Amen!" please?
