He's dating this 25 year old Christian whose 85-year-old mother has Alzheimer's Disease and a fondness for chicken. The 25-year-old's father is only like 50, and doesn't visit his ex-wife. Like the professor, Business Dad is also an atheist. He was dating a 25-year-old, until she revealed she had cancer. That 25-year-old atheist got cancer after conducting a Gotcha…
