if people are really as crazy as they make themselves out to be like this man Idaho...
HAYDEN, Idaho -- A man who believed he bore the "mark of the beast" used a circular saw to amputate one of his hands, cooked it in a microwave and summoned authorities, Kootenai County sheriff's deputies say.
The man, in his mid-20s, was calm when deputies arrived at his home in this north Idaho town Saturday afternoon, and neither he nor the severed hand bore any noticeable tattoo or other mark, sheriff's Capt. Ben Wolfinger.
"It had been somewhat cooked by the time the deputy arrived," Wolfinger said.
The man, whose name was withheld, was in protective custody in the mental health unit of Kootenai Medical Center in Coeur d'Alene, where he and the hand were taken by ambulance. Hospital spokeswoman Lisa Johnson would not say whether an attempt was made to reattach the hand, citing patient confidentiality restrictions.
"He put a tourniquet on his arm before, so he didn't bleed to death," Wolfinger said. "That kind of mental illness is just sad."
The New Testament book of Revelation contains a passage in which an angel is quoted as saying, according to the New International Version of the Bible, "If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink the wine of God's fury."
The book of Matthew also contains the passage, "And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body tha n for your whole body to go into hell."
Wolfinger said he didn't know which hand was amputated.
" no wonder their are Atheist's in this world ".
