Artist crucifies an ape and electrocutes a black Jesus in London:
There's a new cross on display at the old Holy Trinity Church at Marylebone in the heart of London but the figure dangling from it isn't Jesus; it's a gorilla. Actually, it's a sculpture; one of 60 pieces in an exhibit called The Age of the Marvelous. And the church isn't a church either; at least, not any more. Built in 1825, the former Holy Trinity Church is now One Marylebone, a conference center catering to meetings, events and exhibits, large and small.

The very life-like gorilla on a cross was created by artist Paul Fryer with the help of a former Madame Tussauds waxworks expert. The piece is entitled The Privilege of Dominion and is intended to highlight the plight of the Western Lowland Gorilla as well as to challenge the idea that animals have no souls. The artist insists that he didn't intend to offend Christians.

The artist also defended his other work in the exhibit, a Pieta-like sculpture of an electrocuted black Jesus, by saying it was intended it was intended to challenge people's notions of race and religion.

If they can't get past the cover there isn't much hope they'll get to the inside.

I wish the cover of Dawkin's new book (in America) was a little different. Firstly, I love his book The god Delusion; I only wish it weren't plastered boldly on the cover of his new book on evolution. I would like to "reach out" to religious people about evolution, but the bold text on this book puts them off. Also, the subtitle should be larger, Evidence for Evolution should be the first thing you see.

Chuck, that was funny. I hope the pope agrees to do this.

LOVE the Colbert Report installment! Outstanding. Dr. Dawkins is simply amazing to watch, and seeing him laugh is a heartwarming pleasure.
