How to Protect Your Carotid Artery

Check out this story. Summary:
A man shouting that God would keep him safe was mauled to death by a lioness in Kiev zoo after he crept into the animal's enclosure, a zoo official said on Monday.

Sorry to bring up religion once again, but this is just hilarious (well, less so for the family of the guy, but even they probably had a few guffaws). Apparently the lion went right for him as soon as he went into the enclosure thinking God would protect him.

Now, is this proof that God does not exist, or does it just show that He hates stupid people? And that He has the ability commandeer the free will of lions in order to maul his enemies.

Or maybe this guy just prayed to the wrong god. There are thousands of gods out there, and most of them get pissed when you pray to a competing god. Maybe he got to the afterlife and met some eight-legged giraffe with the head of a rhino, who said "Hi, I'm The One True God. Sorry, but none of you humans figured out that I'm the right god to worship, so I have to kill you all in creative ways and send you to hell for all eternity. I was trying out something new with you. How'd it feel?"

Speaking of animals, HERE is Samuel L. Jackson talking about how awesome Snakes on a Plane will be. Kickass.

P.S. Is "all eternity" redundant?

What a fool! Didn't he know that Daniel was the only one who God saved from the lions? Well, he got what he deserved - apparently dumb people are delicious!

He died for our sins. He should rise again in about 3 days.

Oh wait... I'm getting confused.

Aslan did rise again... and went on to rule all of Narnia after killing the evil Queen Tilda-something after she killed him first and those nice Pevensie girls petted his dead body for a real long time. And at some point I think Aslan ate some guy in a zoo.

Jesus wanted me to let you guys know that he doesn't find your comments funny at all and he's getting kinda mad.

Jason said...

Well as long as he doesn't get "poopy."

Phronk, I don't believe this story. I think you're lion to us. JAJAJA!

Hi there... I came over after you defended me on Dani's site.... well, you didnt defend me, but you did point out that she hadn't addressed my comment directly... just danced around under a shower of bible quotes.

Anyway, I thought I'd stop by because your "atheists thinking they are god is like vegetarians thinking they are cows" comment... man, that cracked me up!

I'm glad I caught this post on my first visit... praise zeus! I'm also a big fan of logic and philosophy so perhaps we can be friends in blogland.

Peace!

Perhaps God is just impatient like the rest of us and wanted to speed up the reincarnation process??

The Holywriter said...

I've spoken to God, and he really does hate stupid people.

Jason said...

God and I both like grilled cheese sandwiches.

This was a real life example of what the true meaning of the word 'hubris' is.

Carrie said...

i have my level 2 st. john's ambulance 1st aid certificate, so i know all about this shit....but if someone's artery was splurting blood everywhere, guess if i'd help or run the fuck away. that's right.

MyQuestioningMind said...

Didn't Jesus say something about not putting God to the test?

Read the book.

Gette said...

God enjoys a good laugh now and then, too.

This is not evidence against God's existence, but rather evidence that God has given free will to all creatures with brains of any size and level of development.

If I were a lion, I'd have eaten the guy too.
