As soon as the words escaped, I realized my mistake. This man had no proof of God's existence. He was not hear to provide any such thing. Instead, he smiled broadly, revealing jagged teeth hadn't notice until now, and said.
"I'm not God silly, but you should have believed in him."
No one ever heard from me again.
