In reply to: Darwin candidate? 's message, "US ‘missionary’ killed with deadly arrows by remote tribe he tried to 'save' with Christianity, on the remote on North Sentinel Island in the Indian Ocean. ..." on Thursday, November 22, 12:34:44pm

Tribes won't ever forget outsiders who bring in diseases for which the tribe lacks immunity. It's already happened to the Onges (relatives of the Sentinels}. Many Native American tribes are believed to have died out because they lacked immunity to diseases Europeans brought in, not because of an organized plan of extermination.

People need to leave the Sentinels alone.

BTW, that's the Marcus Whitman massacre in Oregon in 1846, not the Charles Whitman massacre in 1966 in Texas. (NT)obitcheckerSunday, November 25, 05:29:53pm
