Today in Australia, 33-year-old Englishman Alexander Christian York, was sentenced to five years in prison for the manslaughter of Scotsman Rudi Boa last January.
The two were chance neighbors at a caravan park on vacation. His girlfriend Gillian Brown accompanied Boa and both were biomedical scientists. Both were evolutionists. York had a more religious view on things and was a creationist.
The three were at a local pub arguing evolution and putting back several pints (never a good idea.) It didn’t take too long for tempers to flare and a shouting match to occur.
The drunken trio returned to their campground and continued their debate as York began preparing dinner outside his tent with a kitchen knife (definitely not a good idea.) It wasn’t long till York “accidentally” misplaced his kitchen knife inside Boa’s body, thus ending the argument once and for all.
