    Idiot killed by "uncontacted" tribe on North Sentinel Island

    I was surprised nobody made a thread about this one.

    This guy was a missionary who wanted to share the Good News with the famously unfriendly-to-outsiders folks on North Sentinel Island.

    This is Darwin Awards stuff for a number of reasons, not least of which is that they ONLY SPEAK THEIR OWN LANGUAGE, which I am guessing might have been a stumbling block to conversion for the average English-speaking dipshit.

    As far as this incident goes, I refuse to judge someone who probably thought he was doing what God wanted him to do. This is not the first time a missionary has been killed for going into harm's way, and sometimes their death opens doors. God works in mysterious ways.

    So true, he went to the island with the express purpose to destroy
    peoples way of life( 3 times before he was killed)
    Also can we do this with self righteous vegans that walk into a steakhouse?

    I have to think that if God wanted those people to be Christians, he could have employed a more effective mechanism than an unwelcome mortal agent.
    The guy disregarded the fact that his presence wasn't just dangerous to himself, it could well have unleashed on those isolated people diseases for which they have no immunity and which might have decimated their population; and may yet.

    Some people think God wants them to kill abortion doctors.
    Some guy thought God wanted him to behead another guy on a bus in Canada.
    Some people think God wants them to hate gay people, Muslims, or even other Christians who don't belong to the same sect that they do.

    I'd have to say that if you think God is telling you to do or say something, it's probably the wrong thing to do or say.
    The right thing to do is to get pronto to a mental health professional, the right thing to say is that you're hearing voices telling you to do stuff.

    If we accept that God has ever spoken to or through someone, how can we dismiss as crazy or criminal anyone else who makes the same claim offering the same evidence for their inspiration?

    I would say that logically, we can't; if we accept that in any case.

    Maybe God really was talking to Jim Jones and David Koresh.
    Maybe God really told this guy to go to the island.

    Or maybe they're all just bat-shit crazy.
    Maybe everybody who has ever made that claim was just equally bat-shit crazy.

    I hate that this dumbass lost his life in such a stupid, useless and unnecessary fashion. I also hate that he put those people at risk; and now others might risk harm all the way around again trying to recover the body.

    That's just bat-shit crazy.

    Thank you. I wasn't sure if there was room for "totally justified" in front of "tribe."

    I read some report over the weekend saying that they (the totally justified, uncontacted tribe) had dissuaded some previous visitors from pursuing contact by shooting at them with blunt arrows.

    If true, that suggests that they simply wanted to chase people away rather than harm them; at least on those occasions; although they have killed before too.

    I also read that the interloper believed that God was "sheltering" him and helping him reach the island undetected by the authorities.

    That God - he's such a joker.
    First, Abraham and Issac; now this guy...

    This is exactly what we do as a country to others. Attack them for not being like us and insisting they change their ways to accept our beliefs.

    Before it's all over with, we may attack and wipe out that whole, murderous lot of heathens.
    But we should give them a chance to convert before we kill them - it's just the charitable thing to do.

    I wonder if that island has much in the way of natural resources?
    No matter - it might still make a great, out-of-the-way little spot for a vacation resort; sort of along the lines of Mar-a-Lago, maybe.

    Those people are doing exactly what history shows they should do.
    I bet many Native Americans wish that they could have a do-over and handle it more like that.

    Yeah, the poor guy was naive to say the least, but I wouldn't be surprised should the romanticized inhabitants be found to be ruled by a despot demi-god who has his people hoodwinked into ministering to his every desire which is not that outsiders come and spoil his and his goons' sybaritic party. Cannibalism, anyone?

    That would make them a lot like us these days, I'd say.
    Reports are that they buried the guy - that would be quite wasteful for cannibals; unless maybe they carved him up first.

    There again, I've read that some cannibals eat their captors\victims in the belief that they will then inherit traits like courage or prowess in battle, stuff like that.
    Maybe they determined there wasn't anything at all there that they were willing to risk picking up from the guy, so burial it was.

    They may have BBQ'd him underground. Seriously. Prepare the coals, stick him in the pit, cover him with earth or leaves or something, and drool.

    He's something all right. I was friends with him on FB until I read a post of his that did not jibe with the Bible, so I dumped his butt.

    I wonder if missionaries have a different flavor or texture than atheists or TV preachers?
    Probably depends a lot on diet and how they're cooked, I'm guessing.

    I read somewhere that they don't think these folks are cannibals, based on the fact that they apparently didn't eat the 2 fishermen they killed a few years ago.

    Also, some sources believe they haven't even developed an ability to make fire. Eating this Chau idiot is unappetizing enough to me; could you imagine eating missionary tartare???
