God and the USMC


A United States Marine was attending some college courses between
assignments. He had completed missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. One of the courses had a professor who was an avowed atheist and a member of the ACLU .

One day the professor shocked the class when he came in he looked to the ceiling and flatly stated; ‘God, if you are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform. I’ll give you exactly 15 minutes.’ The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop.

Ten minutes went by and the professor proclaimed, ‘Here I am God. I’m still waiting.’ It got down to the last couple of minutes when the
Marine got out of his chair, went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him, knocking him off the platform. The professor was out cold.

The Marine went back to his seat and sat there, silently. The other
students were shocked, stunned, and sat there looking on in silence.

The professor eventually came to, noticeably shaken, looked at the Marine and asked, ‘What the heck is the matter with you? Why did you do that?’ The Marine calmly replied, ‘God was too busy today protecting American soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid stuff and act like an idiot.  So, He sent me.’

  1. Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) teached philosophy in Basel. One day he wrote on the blackboard: God is dead. Signatory: Nietzsche.
    some monthes latter Nietzsche died. The next day the students could read on the blackboard: Nietzsche died. Signatory: God.

  2. Indeed, the idols I have loved so long
    Have done my Credit in Men’s Eye much Wrong:
    Have drown’d my Honour in a shallow Cup,
    And sold my Reputation for a Song.

    best regards
