'Adventurist' American Killed by Protected Andaman Tribe on Island Off-Limits to Visitors

quote [ The North Sentinel Island is home to the Sentinelese community, who allegedly killed the American identified as John Allen Chau after he was illegally ferried there by fishermen. ]

The missionary's position is clear

I can't think of a more entitled position than "My desire to get sky dad brownie points trumps your desire for peace, privacy, and safety."

It is interesting how all those Christians that consider the legal immigration of non-whites into the country legally are bad and wrong, but can consider this man illegally entering a country with the explicit intent to change everything about their culture while risking their lives is cool and good.

Much agreed. I have always considered the missionary message to be an entirely ugly one. To paraphrase "I am completely ignorant of everything that has happened to you and your ancestors but it is very important to me for you to understand that your lives don't meet my approval. Also, you need to surrender your land to me."

Believing in a religion is effectively a form of mental illness. A person suffering from delusions will likely have an internally consistent belief structure, but not one that an impartial observer would consider valid. Their base assumptions and self-evident truths are just wrong, and everything else in their mind is built on those.

When you say safety, are you alluding to the possibility of the tribe being exposed to contagious diseases they might not have an immunity from because of their isolation?

I'm fine with it. I think more missionary types should try to save Sentinel Island. It's like Gaia's own retard elimination service.

Sure it was not Oden?
Kama-Kiri said @ 1:57am GMT on 24th Nov
Odin. Not Oden.
dolemite said @ 8:25pm GMT on 24th Nov
Well, now this missionary is a lot more like Oden then.
Jack Blue said @ 2:34pm GMT on 28th Nov
My old nordic is quite bad, but I am sure Oden and Odin is about as accurate.

Please do not be angry at them or at God if I get killed

I'm not. I'm angry at you.

Actually, so long as the tribe does not end up contracting any foreign diseases I am relatively content with the outcome of this incident.

I wonder how many aboriginal people in North America and Australia may be feeling slight pangs of envy right now...

This guy must have been feeling suicidal - North Sentinel Island's inhabitants are legendary. This is why the island has a 3 mile cordon around it in the first place.

This is North Sentinel Island. And the tribal people that live there have a long-standing policy ā€“ if you set foot on our island, we will kill the shit out of you, slit your throat, dump your corpse on the beach, and then disappear into the jungle. We don't negotiate. We don't make friends. We don't make treaties. We defend our fucking island to the death.

...the Indian Navy set up a cordon around the island and declared it illegal under Indian law for any person to ever visit there for any reason. Partly this was for the protection of the Sentinelese ā€“ exposure to the outside world would expose them to any number of lethal diseases and wipe out their population. But it was also for the protection of everyone else in the world as well, as two idiot poachers found out in 2006.

Hey Christians, stay in your damn lane. There's enough of us heathens in the US alone, you don't need to outsource. If you're feeling restless, go volunteer at a soup kitchen or something.

Yes the guy is an idiot, but this is just a pointless waste of life and money.

That's how you can identify a primitive culture, no wall.
