teaching his class.
He shocked several of his students when he flatly
stated he was going to
prove there was no God.
Addressing the ceiling he shouted: "God, if you

like you to knock me off of this platform. I'll
give you 15 minutes."
The lecture room fell silent. You could have heard

His countdown got down to the last couple of

The professor was out cold!

"God was busy. He sent me."
