Ignorance is daring... specially when it claims itself holy

What follows would be quite funny, wouldn't it be because it's directly linked to the deaths of hundreds of people in what seems to be a somewhat serious threat to the secular system in Nigeria.

The "Taliban", as they are known in Nigeria, have raised in arms in order to suppress "Western" (secular) education that dares to claim such dangerous and erroneous things like that Earth is not flat and that rain is created by evaporation in the water cycle. The Nigerian "Taliban" leader, Mohammed Yusuf states it clear:

Like rain: we believe it is a creation of God rather than an evaporation caused by the sun that condenses and becomes rain. Like saying the world is a sphere. If it runs contrary to the teachings of Allah, we reject it. We also reject the theory of Darwinism.

Having a feeling of deja-vu... in Wacko, Texas... you know.

The Nigerian "Taliban" are right now being shelled by the army in their stronghold of Maiduguri, after they initiated a violent campaign that has claimed the lives of at least 140 people in just three days.
