From Ray Comfort’s Facebook page:
In 1999, atheist/stand-up comedian, George Carlin, said: “If there is a God, may he strike this audience dead! See? Nothing happened. Nothing happened? Everybody’s okay? All right, tell you what, I’ll raise the stakes a little bit. If there is a God, may he strike me dead. See? Nothing happened.”1.
God answered his prayer on June 22, 2008…
May George Carlin speak to more in death than in his life.

I said something very similar to Carlin once. A friend and I were talking about God and I yelled* that if He was real He needed to prove it to us right then. Needless to say, He didn’t respond.
Not sure if this is relevant, but I was 6 yrs. old at the time. I hadn’t read Romans 1 yet.
Romans 1:18–20 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
You can’t dictate the terms and conditions to parents, bosses, teachers, police, or even a McDonald’s cashier, so don’t be foolish and think you can do that with God.
*Because of course He couldn’t hear me if I didn’t yell.
