Fundamentalist Christians Outraged By Google Evolution Doodle
Google’s image celebrating scientific discovery is outraging some Christians.
On Nov. 24, Google celebrated the 41st anniversary of the archeological discovery of “Lucy,” a fossil from 3.2 million years ago. The web giant posted an evolutionary doodle of the March of Progress, which signifies 25 million years of evolutionary development.
Not everyone was happy with the remembrance of this scientific discovery. The Friendly Atheist notes that several Christians were outraged on Twitter:
@google my web page shows google in evolution form. Gtbkm! What do you think are we are evolving to? I am changing search engines! OFFENDED
Today is boycott Google Day for me due to their evolution theme. Sorry, but something from nothing is just…dare I say…stupid.
Google no thanks for the evolution banner. Your promoting a unproven fairytale. The truth is GOD created the heavens and the earth…
I love how Google can have a “doodle” celebrating evolution, but they can’t have one celebrating the historical significance of Easter...
However, the Friendly Atheist notes that Google has celebrated Easter with doodles.
The BBC reported in 2014 that 40 percent of Lucy’s skeleton was discovered by paleoanthropologist Donald Johanson and his team in Ethiopia back in November 1974.
