I was afraid to put a Darwin fish on my car. It appears that my fears were justified. How sad.

Early Christians were a tiny minority - they were the little fish in a big pond..the early symbol of the faith was a little fish - It was Romanization that created the cruxifix..that was an early Persian instrument of torture that Rome adopted.

Also - some of the fish portrayed in early art works were flying fish...That a fish could leap out of it's element and be protected by natural law such as gravity - The fish could fly..be seen - and express it self - by the time the pagan preditor attempted to snatch the fish out of the air - gravity or devine natural law would save the fish by drawing it back down into the water. Christianity is kind of shamanistic to a degree - highly dependent on the natural - where as state sponsored religions of the time depended on the artifical - and laws that were un-natuarl - so in a sense an early Christian was super - natrual...and thus untouchable.

Darwin disected the work of the creator...I don't believe that you will find any quote by Darwin "there is no God" - The interpretation of Darwins writing back in about 1859 were slightly perverted - Industrialist at the time some how twisted his ideas into the concept of "survival of the fittest" or as some would insist "the strong" - This began a justication by some to abuse and use humanity - and state that such an abuse and misuse was "natural" - From what I gather - Darwin understood that survival did not come from one species destroying the other in a parasitic manner but came via - mutual aid and co-operation....To bad that our economy is based on this Mis-interpreted idea that the strong should destroy what they percieve as the weak in order to have domain - as we see this does not work in the natuarl world - hence the collapse of the economic psudeo Darwinist ideal.

Everything seems viable except the part where you claimed he was dissecting the work of god. Claims need evidence.

In the bible belt, it will be removed if possible, and they will certianly attempt to make every attempt to gouge the paint to bare metal in the process.

Christians really know how to hate, but they are often cowardly in their actions.

I think the fish was a symbol of Christianity because Jesus really liked to fish. Mostly top-water ****, but he wasn't afraid to break out the old hook-n-worm either. Anyway, that's also why Christians were quick to make the rule about not being able to work on fishing day.
