The British parliament’s first avowedly atheist member, Charles Bradlaugh, would stride into public meetings in the 1880s, take out his pocket watch, and challenge God to strike him dead in 60 seconds. God bided his time, but got Bradlaugh in the end.

oil to make his face shine
and bread to strengthen man’s heart. Ps. 104.15

Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler,
and whoever is led astray by it is not wise. Proverbs 20.1
