quote:
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."

Unfortunately, the lion had already declared that "God will feed me a fresh, tasty human, if he exists."

For some reason I'm thinking about that USian general who said of a Somali warlord, "my God was bigger than his."

If you want to argue theology with a lion... well...

God, or somebody, set up the rules of the universe fairly simply. The stupid often fail to fully grasp the harsh simplicity of those rules.
