A man in the Ukraine chose a novel way to prove the existence of God:
A man shouting that God would keep him safe was mauled to death by a lioness in the Kiev zoo after he crept into the animal's enclosure, a zoo official said 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."

One recalls that Daniel, whom one suspects this man sought to emulate, was placed in the lions den against his will as punishment for serving God openly. Daniel, using the good sense that God gave him, did not sneak into the lions den when no one was looking on a lark.

One suspects the man now has all the proof he needs of God's existence.
