Quote:Mozambique pastor dies attempting 40-day Jesus fast

A pastor in Mozambique has died after trying to fast for 40 days, emulating what Christ is said to have done in the Bible.
Francisco Barajah, founder of the Santa Trindade Evangelical Church, died at a hospital in the city of Beira, where he was evacuated in critical condition.
After 25 days without food or water, he had lost weight to the point where he could not stand up. He was aged 39.


You know what?  Fucking jesus didn't do it either.

I always applaud when fools eliminate themselves. I love the Darwin Awards. We need more of such people to "improve the gene pool". All Bubbas, Good Old Boys, and theists are invited to participate. Chuckle
Never argue with people who type fast and have too much time on their hands...

I read about a monk who was trying to mummify himself by reducing his food intake. He was down to one grain of rice a day before he died. They even had pictures.

And it was an absolutely reliable source, The National Inquirer.

Self crucifixion, you just can't get that last nail in: this bloke did though.

Quote:SEOUL, South Korea — A South Korean taxi driver found dead and nailed to a cross in an apparent re-creation of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ probably carried out the ordeal on his own, police said Wednesday.

The 58-year-old man was wearing only underwear and a crown of thorns when he was found May 1 — one week after Easter — in an abandoned stone quarry in the country’s south. His hands and feet were nailed to the cross, there was a stab wound in his abdomen and nylon strings were tied around his neck. Kim is believed to have nailed his feet to the cross, tied his neck to it and stabbed himself in the side. He is then believed to have drilled holes in his hands and slipped them over nails on the cross, Gyeongbuk Provincial Police Agency officers said, describing the death under condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak to the press.

Daft cunt of the century.

Well at least he was a legit believer. Most of the "believers" I know only seem to believe when it is convenient.

Doesn't it seem odd that this god guy, who is always telling people to do one thing or another, never whispers in the ear of one of these clowns and says "STOP IT, SHITHEAD!"

God DOES do that, all the time, but everyone mistakes it for the voice of satan - or their own conscience.

When do you think Rep. George Santos will claim he himself was nailed to a cross and died in a quarry?  Consider

Religionists have an excuse for this too, they'll just claim he was a false prophet or whatever. In reality it proves religion is bullshit.
