Zoo lion kills man who invokes GodBy correspondents in KievJune 05, 2006
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 today.
"The man shouted 'God will save me, if he exists', lowered himself by a rope into the enclosure, took his shoes off and went up to the lions," the official said.
"A lioness went straight for him, knocked him down and severed his carotid artery."
The incident, yesterday evening when the zoo was packed with visitors, was the first of its kind at the attraction. Lions and tigers are kept in an "animal island" protected by thick concrete blocks.
So what does this prove?
- God doesn't exist. [Well duh! Of course he doesn't exist. Or else he would have saved that crazy dude's life. However, God might have considered this crazy dude's action as suicide hence he wouldn't care to save a suicidal and crazy dude's life.]
- Lion likes to eat human.
- The crazy guy is either an extremely crazy Christian or an extremely devoted Atheist. I mean devoted to the cause of proving that God doesn't exist. But then again, if he was an atheist, god would have hated his gut hence he wouldn't have saved him. At least that guy can die knowing that he has proven that either god doesn't exist or god isn't merciful
