what did you think about it? do you think its true? alot of my friends think its a hoax. and alot of them look up to it. me i don't really know i'm not religious but i want to be. and then yet i don't. i'm just really confused. so i read the story and really liked it. the ending just made me smile and want to be a believer. it goes like this basically there was this professor every year he would have his classes research if jesus is real. and at the end of the year there were less and less believers. so then on the last day he said if you believe there is a jesus stand up no one ever stood. so he took a piece of chalk and said if there really is a jesus let save this chalk from being shattered. so he dropped it and it was shattered into a million pieces. one year later a kid had to complete the professor major and he heard about the project so he prayed every night that he had the courage to stand on the last day. the day came he was the only one standing up. the professor called him a fool and grabbed a piece of chalked and it slipped out of his hands got caught to something then rolled down his pants legs and off his shoe unharmed and not shattered. the professor ran out and the boy came to the front of the classroom and talked about his faith. what do you think about the story?

This is something for people who have religion and faith and all that important stuff. I don't doubt the existence of Jesus. There is a lot of evidence for that. The problem might be in how he is viewed. So the professor is not so bright, in fact I would have to say he is quite stupid. There are more intelligent ways to show your point of view than a simple chalk example.

That's an interesting story, and one I've never heard before. Thanks for posting it for us to read. If you'd like to know about God, do you have a Bible? The Gospel of John in the New Testament is a good place to start if you're curious.
