Good Article On The Evolution Of The Bible In The December 2018, National Geographic.

National Geographic typically does do a Christianity related feature for its December issue and over the years, I recall, we have had some good ones. If I go and look and my ‘small’ pile of SAVED NatGs I might even be able to tell you what some of them were. Well, I will be keeping this one too.

To be honest, given that I studied the history of the Bible for a couple of years, I knew most of what I have read so far. But, what makes this special is the peerless NatG graphics, photographs, research and access. The graphics are SUPERB. There is one which is a pictorial summary of what is contained in each book of the Bible — Old and New Testament. Neat.

If you are interested in this topic you really should ‘read’ this. I haven’t tried to read it online. I faithfully subscribe to the printed version every year.

Well, I just wanted to make sure you knew about this.

I just got the November 2018 issue today and only had time to quickly scan through the article and BEAUTIFUL photos.

It is a topic dear to my heart since I have seen, first hand, this year, as to what is happening to TRIBAL LANDS.

The “Bad Ol’ Days” are back again with the Indians, yet again, with their backs to the wall.

My concern was what was happening at Canyon de Chelly.

The NatG article is mainly about Utah and “Bears Ears“.

Please try to read this article. Hence, this post. Thank YOU.

National Geographic, October 2018, Goes Over The Top With Classic Topless ‘Tribal’ Pictures.

by Anura Guruge


October 2018 ‘National Geographic’.

‘Threatened by the Outside World’ article — page 42.

Click to ENLARGE.






Classic and classical! Vintage National Geographic tribal topless from the 1950s. Cracked me up. As soon as I saw the article I had a sneaking feeling that National Geographic will include some Tribal Topless. I was right. Very blatant. No attempt to disguise it or make it less obvious. Right in your face.

First topless in National Geographic since the March 2018 issue — and the picture there was from a 1965 issue.

The last proper tribal topless was in the June 2016 issue. I had been concerned that National Geographic will stop the tribal topless now that ultra-conservative ‘Fox News‘ owns 73% of the ‘society’. Guess I need not have worried.

But, then there is also this. In March 2018 National Geographic apologized for its racist coverage of ‘bare chested exotics’ — i.e., tribal topless pictures. What fun. What hypocrisy.

National Geographic: New Design As Of May 2018 & NO Plastic As Of June 2018.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.

May 2018 in the middle. June 2018 on the right. April to the right.



Click to ENLARGE. The most obvious changes are on the spine. Here are April, May & June 2018.


I have been reading the ‘National Geographic‘ for about 62-years. I started, very young, in Ceylon, in the mid-1950s, given that my father used to have it shipped to him, from the USA, along with the “Reader’s Digest“. He had stacks and stacks of them on the floor of his extensive library. He and I both would help ourselves to one on the way to the bathroom. That, I confess, is where I still read both magazine. And I too still have active subscriptions to both those magazines along with the new ‘History’ magazine from ‘National Geographic’.

As of the May 2018 we now have a new design. The most striking difference is in the spine as shown above. They no longer have the name ‘National Geographic’. Instead there is the iconic ‘rectangle’. They have also gone an all numeric month notation; e.g., 05.2018 & 06.2018.

The inside is supposed to be more modern. It looks OK. Maybe a tad too fussy for my old eyes. But, it is readable enough.

The June issue came in a recyclable paper wrapper. No more plastic! That was good. That whole issue focused on the plastic problem.

They haven’t snuck in any topless pictures in the last two issues. I will, as ever, keep an eye and share with you. Promise.

National Geographic, March 2018, Slips In A Topless ‘Tribal’ Picture Pinning It On Paul McCartney.

by Anura Guruge


March 2018 ‘National Geographic’.

Front pages — “From the Editor“.

Click to ENLARGE.


Click to ENLARGE. This was the interviews — “From the Editor”.

It was cute, at multiple levels, and brought a wry smile to my lips. Paul McCartney, you dirty dog.

January 1965. I must have seen that too, in Ceylon. I would have been 11, Paul 22.

Intriguing. That was his inspiration for “Lady Madonna“. I just checked the lyrics. See below. Yes, he does have “Lady Madonna, a baby at your breast“. Hhhmmmm.

Did he keep that January 1965 issue this long? Mary McCartney, in the photo credit, is his mother.

You just would have thought Paul would have seen quite a few OTHER breasts. Interesting.

As far as I can tell this is the first Topless in National Geographic since June 2016 — and this one, in the scheme of things, is pretty innocuous. But, I wanted to make sure that I did document it.

Interesting interview. I think I knew that he was a vegetarian.

I also think that I might be able to manage “Meat Free Monday“. Maybe I will start next week.

Three Episodes On Sri Lankan Wildlife On ‘National Geographic’ TV Channel.

Click image to access ‘Nat G’ listing.


I serendipitously stumbled across them when I was idly browsing through the NatG TV online schedule.

We have such a backlog of movies and TV shows ‘on tap’ that we haven’t watched anything on NatG for months. So I had not seen anything about these episodes earlier. I DVRed all three. They have yet to record. I will, of course, let you know.

National Geographic, June 2016, Includes A Classic Topless ‘Tribal’ Picture.

by Anura Guruge


June 2016 ‘National Geographic’.

Page 35 — “Peru’s World Apart“.

Click to ENLARGE.


I have to confess I was surprised (pleasantly, I think). I had assumed, obviously erroneously, that National Geographic’s freedom to print topless (semi-nude) tribal pictures — once it’s trademark — would come to an end when ultra-conservative ‘Fox News‘ acquired 73% ownership of the iconic society (and hence the magazine) at the end of 2015. Well this is the 3rd topless picture they have published in 2016 — with two appearing in the January 2016 issue. Maybe the editor’s want to prove a point as to their independence and rights.

The June picture (above) harks back to the good ol’ days when the magazine was still in monochrome. Straight, unabashed full-frontal. To be honest I missed it the first time around! Then when I saw them during my second browsing … it was like … how did I miss those suckers?

Anywho. I am doing my job of documenting and chronicling the topless in NatG since 2014. This as you can see from the gallery below is the 8th since 2014. Enjoy. Reflect. Rejoice that NatG still can escapes the clutches of ‘Fox News’.
