I,too, was a math atheist---until I took a required course in college algebra. There were 14 other guys in the class whoshared my religious belief. The first quiz that we were given, we all flunked gloriously. Our professor was a sweet little old lady with snow white hair. When she walked into class the next day, her cheeks were burning red. Like Moses, descending from Mt. Sinai, she had a message for us from God: YOU...WILL...NOT...FAIL...MY...CLASS!! There a only a few simple theorems to learn and YOU'RE...GONNA...LEARN 'EM! So much for atheism. I buckled down and got a "C" for the course since failure was not an option.
