So I came across this story on the BBC News site a couple of weeks ago and thought I’d share. It is a story from June 2006 about a religious man who wanted to prove the existence of GOD. Not content to just reference the Bible or claim some miracle happened, he really went off the deep end.

The man decided to pay a visit to the lions den in the Kiev zoo. And when I say visit with the lions I really mean it. I guess with the idea that lions are GOD’s creatures, he shouted, “God will save me, if he exists”, climbed the concrete blocks separating the lion’s ‘island’ from the spectators and lowered himself into the lion’s den with a rope.

Once landing on the ground, “A lioness went straight for him, knocked him down and severed his carotid artery.”

So, does this finally confirm it.? Obviously, there is no GOD right? Ok, maybe the actions of a crazy person don’t disprove the existence of GOD.

Besides, this guy didn’t really seem to be strong in his faith. I mean if I was a GOD and I was hangin’ out in my celestial lawn chair, soaking up some prayers(I don’t know what a GOD would do in their off time, they might do that) over in some far space in the universe and I heard some dude shout, “GOD will save me,” I might sit up and take notice. I might say, “Hhhhhhhhrrmmmmm. Someone is asking for help let me look into this.” Then he finishes his sentence, “if he exists.”

Well screw him! He isn’t a believer. Let the lions at him.

Well that’s just me anyway. Guess its a good thing I’m not a GOD. Would be fun though.
