Here’s a funny one about a US Marine providing an education for an atheist with delusions of grandeur.
A United States Marine was attending some college courses between assignments. He had completed tours 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 the professor 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 was 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 in a heap on the floor.
The Marine calmly 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 hell 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.”
My mother – who retired as a Major in the US Marine Corps – always said that we were all God’s hands but that, when God needed to make a fist, he sent in the Marines. God, Corps and Country – Semper Fidelis!
