THE ULTIMATE QUIZ Five brilliant atheist scientists find themselves standing at Heaven's Gate. Much to their sheer amazement and shock, they are greeted and welcomed by Archangel Michael asked: "Are you all ready to enter into Eternity? The scientist all responded with an enthusiastic: "Yes we are!" 'Let me first explain: There are 10 Levels of Eternity: Level #10 offers the Maximum Benefit Package, where as Level #1, the lowest.' The scientists stated they would settle for nothing less then Level #10. Michael, then said: 'Being placed in Level #10 is conditional. You are required you take a 20 question quiz and score 100%; if you fail the test, you will be given the option to take the test again; in order to do so, however, you must return to earth (as a newborn) and start another life. Only upon your death, will you again be transported to us for re-testing. Should you choose not to take the test again or fail the second time, means an automatically placement in Level #1 which I will explain later on. If this is fully understood, I'd like to ask you to please sign this Agreement Form.' The scientist read and signed the form. Michael then said: 'Very well then, please follow me.' The five scientists were led to long circular table with five chairs. There were five little booklets placed above each chair on the table. 'Here are your test questionnaires. Kindly place your full name at the top right hand comer of the quiz. You have 30 minutes by which to complete this quiz. If you do not answer a question, do not continue; it will result in an automatic disqualification.
