The coronavirus seems to be dominating the news, and the creationist outfits we follow don’t have much to say today — but we do have something you may find interesting. It’s at the Fox News website: Hindu group in India consumes cow urine to ward off coronavirus. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Believing that cow urine can ward off coronavirus, a Hindu group in India reportedly hosted a cow urine drinking party Saturday to test their belief.
We weren’t invited, so we’ll have to rely on the news article, which then says:
The cow is sacred to many Hindus and some drink cow urine believing it has medicinal purposes. But experts have repeatedly asserted that cow urine does not cure illnesses like cancer and there is no evidence that it can prevent coronavirus, according to Reuters.
There’s certainly room for both theories. As the Discoveroids say: Teach the Controversy. Okay, back to the news article:
The party hosted by Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha (All India Hindu Union) drew a crowd of 200 people in New Delhi, according to Reuters. “We have been drinking cow urine for 21 years, we also take bath in cow dung. [Wow!] We have never felt the need to consume English medicine,” Om Prakash, an attendee told Reuters.
There’s nothing wrong with diversity, we always say. Now we’re skipping to the end, so this is our last excerpt:
Leaders from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist party have advocated the use of cow urine as medicine and a cure for cancer, according to Reuters.
We know what you’re thinking, but you don’t have a better method of immunization, do you? Then don’t be judgemental, dear reader.
