R.I.P. Evel Knievel. The legendary stuntman gave an interview to Maxim magazine shortly before his death last week.
Knievel suffered from the rare lung disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
â€œhow much can a human body endure? My immune systemâ€™s shot. The doctors gave me three years four years ago. I got this disease thatâ€™s so rare thereâ€™s no cure. I donâ€™t know of anybody else who had it except Marlon Brando.â€
He also tells how he “found God” a few months ago in a hotel room:
â€œAll my life I was an atheist,â€ he says. â€œIâ€™d tell people I didnâ€™t believe Jesus could walk on water. Then something happened in Daytona. God spoke to me. He said, â€˜Robert, you got to stop tellinâ€™ people you donâ€™t believe in me. I been takinâ€™ care of you for years, watchinâ€™ over you. I done everything for you. And you go tell people you donâ€™t believe in me. You gotta stop it.â€™ â€
Evel puts his hands over his face, then sobs,
â€œI told God Iâ€™d never insult him again.â€
