sometimes professors do have it coming

A United States Marine was taking some college courses between assignments.

He had completed 20 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 min.”

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 and stunned,

and sat there looking on in silence.

The professor eventually came to, noticeably shaken,

looked at the Marine and asked,

“What in the world is the matter with you? Why did you do that?”

The Marine calmly replied,

“GOD was too busy today protecting America’s soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid stuff and act like an idiot. So He sent me.”

    I’m not sure I can agree that a higher power sent a Marine to punch an opinionated man into unconsciousness. However, I do like that an know it all got decked and a angry young man likely went to jail for assault.

    That’s just a good story.

      I am not a fan of know-it-all’s and why I laughed and liked this story 🙂

    not really a great fan of God, nor marines–Nothing against them, but–The professor really did have this coming to him!! Isn’t what the marine did what all of us, deep in our hearts want to do, when an idiot says/does something so incredible stupid you start praying for
    god, Allah, The Buddha, Ganish (not sure about the spelling of that one), the Universal Higher Power, Mother Earth, & The Great Spirit, all get together, and grab a few that I forgot, and stand in front of the man, and say, “say that again to our faces!”
