Ambitious vandalism! A couple of college students in Toronto…

HA HA HA NO
Ambitious vandalism!
A couple of college students in Toronto (what is it with those ferocious godless heathens coming out of that city?) took offense at the patent absurdity of the "Bible and Bible Studies" section of a large bookstore at Yonge and Eglinton, and decided to help organize the shelves by filing their contents more appropriately. They quietly moved the contents to other places in the bookstore, like Fiction, Humour, Sexuality, Erotica, Cuisine, Parenting, Mental Disorder, Parapsychology and the Occult. At right is the result.

That's Sam Harris' Letter to a Christian Nation sitting all alone there.

I can't really condone this kind of behavior — think of the poor clerks who have to look everywhere to find and restore the bibles to their little ghetto — but it is funny. It's also godless Canada, so maybe nobody noticed for a few weeks or months. Maybe nobody cared.

Here's the other side of the story.

The book-shuffler also explains his side.
Best comment in the thread, as pointed out by hickbear.

Hahaha, I am so proud that I go to University of Toronto. Godless Canada apparently has the right idea. I do feel bad for the poor clerk as well though, but it IS an interesting idea!

Well, if they had just taken the books outside to burn them, the staff wouldn't worry about having to re-arrange them.*











*totally kidding, of course.

I think we need to look into syndicating PZ Meyers onto LJ. I found a post of his Wed and shared it with envirobear.

Best line in the "other side post", on pure irony alone, the Bible is their most stolen book.

I didn't know you read PZ - I read him religiously (pun intended)! He's stopped posting on science but he's pretty awesome =)
