A university professor in Michigan recently sent a scare into his students when he began stripping off his clothes and screaming during class.
According to eyewitnesses, the unnamed Michigan State calculus teacher suddenly started having a meltdown during a routine math equation.
“He started talking about his colleagues and how they’re all actors,” freshman Kyle Hillman recounted. “He said, ‘It’s all an act and none of it’s real.’ Then he ran out of the classroom.”
Another student explained, “Half way through class, he started screaming at us — swearing left and right. He then started slamming his hands on the window and pressing his face against it, still screaming. Eventually he walked out and down the hallway to the end, all the while screaming.”
Students said that they could hear the professor shouting profanities in the hall and screaming, “There is no (expletive) God!”
When he returned, they said they could not believe what happened next.
“He then came back into the classroom and took off his clothes, except for his socks,” students explained. “At this point, everyone in class ran out.”
Hayden Boroski stated that he then called 9-1-1, and fifteen minutes later, police arrived on the scene. Officers told local reporters that the professor was taken “into protective custody and transported … to a local hospital. No one was injured, and the professor is not being charged with a crime.”
The professor was apprehended while still naked, and at least one student snapped a photo of the incident as proof of its occurrence.
While some of the students believe that the teacher merely had a mental breakdown, others may wonder if demon possession was involved.
Pastor Paul Duncan of Mambrino Baptist Church in Granbury, Texas states that contrary to some beliefs, demon possession is real.
“The devil and his demons are not to be mocked as mythological,” he said. “By the power of evil spirits, people are able to do unbelievably destructive things, like betray the glorious Son of God.”
“In fact, Ephesians 6:12 tells us that Christians wrestle not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places,” he added.
Donald Stewart of Portmore Lane Covenant Community Church in St. Catherine, Jamaica agrees.
“There is a tendency in circles where people are very intellectual or very scientific to think that spiritual things are really just a figment of people’s imagination,” he said. “[But] I have seen some very traumatic things. I have seen people trying to throw themselves off buildings, diving through windows on second floor buildings. I have seen people who stripped themselves naked, doing all types of crazy sex things.”
Stewart said that people can often open the door to the demonic because of purposeful exposure to evil.
“We look at some of the wrong things on the television or on the Internet, it influences our thoughts, lustful thoughts develop, it leads to … fantasizing, and it opens the door wide,” he explained.
In July of this year, Rudy Eugene, the man who chewed off the face of a homeless man in Miami, was reported to have also stripped naked prior to the attack.
As of press time, no reports have been released regarding the diagnosis of the Michigan State University professor, or whether he had been taking any psychotic drugs. It is also unknown as to whether he will be allowed to return to class in light of the incident.
