Medicine Man Jumps Into Crocodile Pile to Prove His gods Are Legit. They Weren’t.

You’ve heard of Appalachian snake-handling charismatics who practice their God-daring in the name of the textually questionable ending of Mark? This Shaman said, “hold my Bingtang.”

According to news reports, the Shaman in Kutai Kartanegara, Indonesia, jumped into a pile of crocodiles to prove that his gods had given him the magical power to control reptiles. It turns out, he didn’t have such powers.


The body of “Shaman Suprianto” was retrieved on Sunday. By the way, another Shaman was recently eaten trying the same stunt.

Now, if only we can get charismatic faith healers to go touch some lepers.
