Even Symbols can be Hamful
Caption reads: "Symbol of eternity, this 'mother tree,' a pine in northern Mongolia draws pilgrims from all over. It gave under the weight of cloth offerings, the blue ones representing everlasting heaven and piece."
I couldn't resist posting this from the December issue of National Geographic. It demonstrates too well how idiotic and potentially destructive religion is even in symbolic form. How many theists will see the irony in one symbol of eternity being killed by another symbol of eternity.
