Superstitious man discovers Daniel is just a story

Ukraine: A man who climbed into the lions' enclosure at Kiev Zoo, claiming that God if he exists would protect him got a nasty surprise on Sunday:

A lioness went straight for him, knocked him down and severed his carotid artery.

We at Prattle Towers draw two possible conclusions from this.

Lioness in zoo kills man who invoked GodReuters, 5th June 2006 (via Pharyngula).



Ah, good old Modus tollendo tollens.

P → Q, ¬Q ⊢ ¬P


Ah, crunchy kitty-snacks!

I'm reminded of:

"Do not meddle in the affairs of Dragons, for you are crunchy, and good with ketchup"

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
