Another Short Argument Against Theocracy

Some years ago I recall reading of a man who was boating on an Iowa lake when a thunderstorm blew up. Being totally plastered, he took umbrage. He climbed up on the roof of his boat's little cabin and loudly cursed God and then flipped the Almighty off. Not surprisingly he was thereupon stuck by lightning and immolated -- leaving his guests on board nearly insane with fear and shock. Bad boating practice.

Well, here's the opposite sort of cautionary tale about a fellow who decided to put the Daniel Among Lions Principle to a practical test. Darwin Award with Double Oak-Leaf Cluster for Extra Irony.
