Train evacuated because of bible
« on: October 02, 2017, 04:53:27 PM »
A passenger on a British train caused a panic when he started reading verses aloud from his bible.  Things really got going when he got to the verse "Death is not the end."

Color me amused.  And happy that no one was hurt.

I bet the Bible reader was butt-hurt, though.

This is what happens, when your culture is so de-christianized, that they can't tell the Bible from the Quran.  Not that I would mind a professional chanting of the Quran.

Well, it's not an abnormal response to react to a religious fanatic with fear.  Especially in a confined space where there are no exits.  Although, rather than create such a commotion, it may have been a better choice to throw him off the train, so that everyone else could make their appointments.

I would jump off a train if a Democrat was on it, but better to just throw the Democrat off it.

Was this bible like one of the books from harry potter, a flesh eating version?

The Monster Book of Monsters had a mission in life. To eat trainers.

Eating a Belgian waffle perhaps.  But I find that suspiciously coincidental, don't you?

When there are apparently crazy people acting out on public places, it is natural to be suspicious of their intent.  And screaming biblical passages in public places these days is a reason to be concerned about intent.  Religious nuts are usually the cause of insane mayhem...

Does that mean they understood they would still have to listen to his rant after they were all dead ;-)
not expecting god to show up, but if he does we’re going to have to beat the prick up.

Rather, it seems that HE thought they would after they were dead.  Which is a real difference between Atheists and theists.  THEY think we exist after death.
