So there's this mad scientist! who's designed a machine that subjects people to a really strong magnetic field until they perceive - wow! - the presence of god. No, really. Then they tested it on..wait for it..Richard Dawkins!
Let me guess - it cranked up to a high-pitched chattering whine, sucking in so many prayer-watts that churches browned-out for miles around..and finally exploded in a blinding flash.
Not quite, but close.
