Should ISIS go around destroying ancient crap?

http://abcnews.go.com/International/isis-destroys-ancient-temple-lose-palmyra-syrian-director/story?id=34254909

The world is over populated.  We need more parking spots/structures.  ISIS is doing its part by reducing the world's population AND clearing the way for more parking.

I don't find this funny or intellectually stimulating in the least.

ISIS/ISIL is a joke and a piss-take of what both Islam and Sharia Law stands for.

They are worse than any Muslim terrorist group in history as they have no one enemy, no one cause. They are everyone's friend and everyone's enemy all at once. They do not aim to kill as other terrorists have, no these guys ironically mimic the very people who interrogate terrorists and use their terrorist renditions of torture but they don't do that shit for information, they do it to show Allah's might and won't stop until their dicks are hard enough from their sexually frustrated childhoods.

ISIS is a political movement full of young, bored men who want to spice up their lives by killing and destroying things. They don't deserve to be on the planet or have any influence whatsoever. That 'ancient crap' tells a story about the past and is important in culture and history. The temple at Palmyra, the Arch of Triumph and ancient statues are architectural stories, essentially. They've been around longer than Islam itself, so deserve precedence.

But what are we going to do about all the cars people are going to be buying in the future as the world's population increases? We need parking, damn it!

The Sphinx is crap. What good is it? At least a parking structure is useful.

What good it is to you may be nil, but to others possibly more. How is it useless? Do you know how much tourism Egypt gets just because of it? In nearly every shop in every street in Cairo there is some reference to the Sphinx. Besides, in the future we may not even use cars anymore, so your argument is therefore flawed.

Side: True.

The Sphinx is a tremendous learning tool, as is ALL of the ancient artifacts. Without them we would not be searching for the answers to: HOW did those ancients DO this when it would be difficult to impossible for us to do it today. What were their secrets that we can not duplicate today? Powers we can't grasp that could help us? Ancient astronauts? Anti-gravity secrets? Without these ancient articles, we wouldn't even know what questions to ask.

Side: True.
