    I think this is a Noah’s Ark Issue. God returned the animals to their rightful spots after the flood, and they were meant to stay in those spots.

    This incident shows that the crocodilians are actually the centeral characters in God’s creation, not Man. When Man went up against a snake he ended up bringing tricked into death to the world and creating a race of wicked offspring that needed to be genocidally eradicated via a global flood. An alligator, who survived a flood, went up against a snake and the snake exploded.

    Man has always either hid in fear of Satan or been tricked by him, while crocodilians boldly and righteously make Satan’s incarnations explode. The Man-centered Bible, with it’s absurd Human-headed God Jesus, is clearly nothing but Humanist lies and it is time we recognized God’s true only begotten son: Sobek.

    Jean Paul, that brings up an interesting point. Obviously the snakes were on the Ark. Why didn’t God destroy the snake?

    Perhaps He killed all the wickedest snakes in the Flood and allowed the two most righteous snakes to survive, to give them a second chance to exercise their snakey free will without doing Satanic doings. Clearly the incident in the Florida swamp shows that snakes are backsliding. Fortunately for us lesser creations, we have God’s chosen people, the alligators, around to intercede on our behalf and explode them.

    So here, a perfect example of the sin of gluttony and the appropriate punishment for it was wasted on an animal far too stupid to understand the lesson. More evidence for . (Previous examples include the human foot, spine, and knee, and all TV preachers, especially Jimmy Swaggart.)

    OTOH, what sin did the gator commit?

    Let’s try that again with all the angle brackets…

    So here, a perfect example of the sin of gluttony and the appropriate punishment for it was wasted on an animal far too stupid to understand the lesson. More evidence for God the Highly Fallible. (The gator was sinless, much like Job’s wife, children, servants, and cattle, but when GTHF is out to make an example, you’d better not be associated with his target in any way…) Previous examples include the human foot, spine, and knee, and all TV preachers, especially Jimmy Swaggart.

    We note with interest that God also lacked the foresight to make frog butts resilient to firecrackers.

    Jennifer writes: “. . Why didn’t God destroy the snake?”

    A better question might be, ‘Why didn’t God destroy those 2 goddamned mosquitos when he had the chance?’

    …but when GTHF is out to make an example, you’d better not be associated with his target in any way…

    So you’re saying that GTHF employs the concept of Human Shields.

    Sounds appropriate.
