Weird beliefs, weird creatures, weird designer

Imagine what extraterrestrial observers would make of humans had they witnessed this:
At least 345 Muslim pilgrims were crushed to death on Thursday during a stoning ritual on the last day of the haj, the worst tragedy to beset the sacred event in more than a decade.

Saudi officials said the pilgrims were crushed at the eastern entrance of Mena's disaster-prone Jamarat Bridge as they jostled to perform the stoning between noon and sunset in Mena, a narrow valley near the holy city of Mecca.

"Pretty strange animals, these Homo sapiens, don't you think?"

"Uhh, who was it who Designed them?"
