Latest comment: Good Story. All religion is superstition and mythology. There is no more reason to believe in the Christian mythology than any other. I was glad to hear the Piraha were smart enough to ignore him. Many cultures were not...........and eventually lost their land to the missionaries.

It's amazing that these tribes survived so long without his religion, eh? How do they live without being saved from our "high up father"? Why do they only believe in what they can see? Why does he think they need to be saved now? Oh so many logically sarcastic questions unanswered due to a warped man.

Couldn't agree more. Religion and, especially, missionaries are so damned presumptuous. Marvellous that these so-called primitive people don't even need a word for 'higher power'. Our civilisations could learn so much from them!
