Lioness in zoo kills man who invoked God
Mon Jun 5, 2006 08:31 AM ET

KIEV (Reuters) - 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.

"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, Sunday 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.

We finally have proof that God does not exist, because, really, would God want someone that stupid with Him?

Stupid people never cease to amaze me. I honestly don't see how throwing yourself to the lions would ever prove anything about God's existance. Maybe his God felt he deserved to die. And hell, if he was Catholic, technically, wouldn't it be suicide...and that would be a mortal sin...a straight ticket to Hell...if I remember my Catholic teachings (that were forced down my throat as a child) correctly. Maybe I'm just misanthropic, but stupid people should die, just like this one did.

Apparently the lion was atheist.

I'm all for the Darwin Award. I believe this is natural selection at work:)

The sad part is the crazy freak "believers" will say that "God wanted to take him and embrace him so God told the lion to kill him". I have never understood that kind of insane thinking.

Last time I looked suicidal tendancies is a sure way to extinguish a species, God or no God. Isn't there an old proverb that states "God only helps those who help themselves"? This guy was incapable of helping himself, other than to his own death... *sigh*

I would much rather think for myself thank you very much:)
