Best first sentence for a novel about a famous atheist-astronomer who one star-sprent summer evening glimpses God in the bottom of his whiskey glass.

The winner will be selected by the Journal Pulp.
The contest will run from April 18th, 2012, through May 6th, 2012.
Note: If your sentence doesn’t immediately appear in the comments after you’ve submitted, it’s because of the aggressive ASKIMET spam filter. Please note that I check the spam folder carefully and regularly, and that your sentence, if it’s not spam, will be approved. There’s no need to resend.
Thank you for participating.
