Pastor attempts to walk on water, gets eaten by crocodiles

That's unfortunate...

A Zimbabwean church pastor attempting to demonstrate how Jesus walked on water by crossing a river on foot was eaten alive when he was attacked by three crocodiles.

Jonathan Mthethwa of the Saint of the Last Days church brought his congregation to the area known locally as Crocodile River before attempting his biblical recreation.

According to witnesses, the pastor entered the water and waded out approximately 30 metres before attempting to make his way to the surface. Unfortunately for the pastor, three crocodiles pounced and devoured him.

Only his sandals and underwear were recovered, according to a report in the Daily Post.

5. Darwin Award candidate, for sure.

The annual posthumous "honor" for people who die in stupid ways that prove Darwin's survival of the fittest theory.

9. I like

these last two posts. I must point out however, that The Daily News is not exactly a "credible" news source. Yet I do believe that there is someone on this great big planet who will someday be stupid enough to try this. You can't go broke betting against human stupidity.

12. The reporting originates with Zimbabwe Today

I'm unsure how credible that entity is, but here's a link:

14. Tragic, but at least he had the convictions of his faith

No interpreting it the correct way or weasal words for something that is supposed to be divine.

19. "Unverified" does not equal false, in every case.

All it takes for a reporter to be unable to verify something, is, among other things, to simply be incompetent or biased in investigations.

In any case? Many, many events deep in Africa are indeed hard to verify, even today. To refute or confirm; either one.
