Praying is cheating

As I hand out finals, I gently remind students that asking God for extra help is a form of cheating.  God after all is person with answers and your asking Him for them.  That’s pretty much cheating.  Having said that, here’s how Republican Presidential Candidate got through Freshman Chemistry at Yale:

“When I went to take the test the next morning, it was like ‘The Twilight Zone,'” Carson said. “I opened that book and I recognized the first problem as one of the ones I dreamed about. And the next, and the next, and the next, and I aced the exam and got a good mark in chemistry. It worked out okay and I promised the Lord he would never have to do that for me again”

They always say they’ve learned their lesson.
