Car thief transforms into a goat
January 24, 2009 3:59pm CST
Here is a weird news story from Nigera. According to a newspaper in Nigera, two men tied to steal a car; and when the citizens chased them, one of them turned into a goat (the other man got away). Reading this story, I must admit that I am amazed that anyone can believe this. But then again, we are talking Nigera where witches are still being hunted and killed. I don't know any magician, witch or lunatic that can do it in the western world. Maybe we don't have strong enourgh magic to do such, or maybe I just have not encountered it. The historian in me asks what type of drugs and toxins are in their food supply. Or is it just religion that makes them believe this. Then again, in recent days, we saw a bad president try to turn himself into a good one; not that it worked, in my opinion. Of course, one has to wonder if we don't have criminals who can do this in the western world. Makes one wonder what type of animals some of our disgraced politicians will turn themselves into. The AP article that brought this weirdness up is: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090123/ap_on_fe_st/odd_goat_thief

I was thinking along the same lines you were: what were these people eating/drinking/smoking right before or during the theft? Maybe they saw something that wasn't really there. If I were to steal a car, I think I'd rather turn into a bird so I can fly away. Don't know that goats can run all that fast, and they probably stand out in a crowd of people and cars.

Sounds like a story out of the National Enquirer - I am not sure if inductive reasoning is appropriate here. Crazy things "happen" here in the west as well. I personally do not think the world started spinning when the Greeks popped up - therefore comparing the west with the east is a null and void comparison. All western religions find their roots in the east. But that is a crazy article. I do agree that our politicians are not very trustworthy. They seemed to have turned themselves into mosquitoes - sucking the masses dry!
