    Not sure of the relevance, but burying bibles is a good thing, I agree.

    ..the relevance comrade is that someone may put the Holy Bible on your
    chest as you are lowered into the ground...and there will be nothing you can do about it...

    And I wouldn't be remotely bothered, either. One less bible in circulation - the more I can take with me, the better.

    Still don't see the relevance to Evolution Sunday though.

    Edit - in any case, can you give a source for this detail?

    I think the correct version of events is that she made the sign of the cross on his chest as they shut the coffin.....

    I think this evolution Sunday thing is a really good idea. Get those religious people who aren't stuck on creationism to speak up, so people know not everyone in favor of evolution is a crazed, sinful, atheist jerk like me.

    no...i read that the widow put the Bible on his chest...that is because leonid
    had accepted Christ before he had died and had thought about the millions
    the red commies had slaughterd in the name of equality and realized what a wholesale jerk he was...

    But other than it being in your head, you can't back this up.

    You're probably right. An insignificant event like this would never have been recorded amywhere.
