Christian zealots destroy ancient Arctic petroglyphs
Christian zealots destroy ancient Arctic petroglyphs



Randy Boswell, CanWest News Service
Published: Saturday, August 26, 2006

Canada's only major Arctic petroglyph site -- a 1,500-year-old gallery of mysterious faces carved into a soapstone ridge on a tiny island off of Quebec's northern coast -- has been ransacked by vandals in what the region's top archeologist suspects was a religiously motivated attack by devout Christians from a nearby Inuit community.

For years, heritage advocates have sought special protection for the ancient etchings at Qajartalik Island, located about one hour by boat from the 500-resident village of Kangiqsujuaq. Experts believe they were created by the extinct Dorset culture, an artistically advanced civilization that occupied much of the eastern Arctic before they were killed or driven away by the Thule ancestors of modern Inuit.

More than 170 mask-like images, animal shapes and other symbols have been recorded on the island since the 1960s. Studies suggest Qajartalik was a sacred place, used for Dorset spiritual ceremonies and coming-of-age rituals.

But the site has been dubbed "the Island of the Stone Devils" because some of the faces -- possibly depicting a Dorset shaman in religious costume -- appear to be adorned with horns. In the past, crosses have been scratched on the "pagan" petroglyphs and some area residents have told researchers they believe the site is infested with evil spirits.

quoted from article

Kangiqsujuaq's mayor, Mary Pilurtuut, said she hadn't been informed of fresh damage at the site and doubted "something religious" would have been involved.

"Recently, it's not the case," she said, suggesting that most of the deterioration at the site has been "caused by nature."

You need to learn the Christian religion is full of pagan symbols. The Cross is one of them. The steeple is the symbol of the male sex organ, the bell the female sex organ.

Christians are turning into the twins of Muslim extremists. Defiling ancient art willy-nilly is evil. Especially because of imagined offenses.

Ya know, if God wanted it gone, he could do that himself. Dumbass.

Elijah was an idiot, the inuits are idiots (if they did do it), and you are an idiot to suggest that superstition trumps our historical heritage. At least the stone carvings are real. Grow up.

Re: Christian zealots destroy ancient Arctic petroglyphs
what about atheists forcing court houses to remove the ten commandments?
do you oppose that as well?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 114312



Great point! Let's start a petition to reproduce the ancient Inuit art and post that in the courthouses too. I know, let's turn the courthouses into museums! Them idjit criminals need some high culture as well as morals.

Though they cloak it under the guise of destroying ultimate evil, fanatics seek to destroy because they misperceive anything else as competition. If they were true believers they would not; they would know that their truths can stand on their own merits.

No, they do not have the right to vandalise or destroy artifacts and relics from ancient cultures.

Most things that are "occult" are generally misunderstood by narrow-minded people.

They reenact the torture and make children participate in the ritual. And then eat and drink him when they are finished.

Re: Christian zealots destroy ancient Arctic petroglyphs
occultists have practiced human sacrifice for millenia
but, you protect their "art"

why the hypocrisy?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 114312


I see you're a fan of mass-stereotyping.

Human sacrifice is only a small category in what is popularly considered "occult". Voodoo, astrology, meditation, divination, magic, ESP and even Buddhism and Hinduism are all classed as occult.

Re: Christian zealots destroy ancient Arctic petroglyphs
ten commandments engraven on stone are art
but, they were forcibly removed from many public spaces in the USA

are you for this, or against it?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 114312


That isn't art. Art is pictures, paintings, images, depictions.

The ten commandments are words, and you generally don't find engraved verses of the Qu'ran, the Talmud or any other holy book in American (or Western) public spaces.

Spirits do no rule society, humans do.
Humans create the "spirits". They are symbols of human thought.
The symbols of one spirit is always evil to the purveyors of another spirit.
