Laying them to rest

Quote
Right now, the pages swell with moisture, the fibers separate and the chapters turn into pulpy masses. Bacteria bloom and their colonies expand; fungi flourish and their hyphae infiltrate and convert cellulose into spores. The ink runs as nematodes writhe over the surfaces, etching the words with slime and replacing the follies of dead men with the wisdom of worms. The roots of flowers and grasses will fumble downwards to embrace the decaying leaves, and the roots of trees will impale the volumes laterally. Given only a little time, the madness will be reduced to compost.

I guess that answers my question. Will there be an outcry? Do Muslim extremists read Pharyngula? Watch this space.

And we are equally pleased that you found us, I am sure. Looking forward to some new views and voices around here.

At first I though he was crazy - if he buried them - what would he read if he wanted a really good laugh? Then I remembered, he could always read the Skeptics Annotated Bible/Quran/Book of Mormon.
Where else could you get quotes such as these, in the book written by the supposed creator of the Universe?
"Their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods." God always blames the women; it is they who "go a whoring" and then "make" the men "go a whoring." 34:16"
