GOD Is Busy

If you don't know GOD, don't make stupid remarks!!!!!!

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."

The classroom erupted in cheers!

Nice story. I like the version of this story where it was an ARMY Ranger better :D But, anytime an American Serviceman gets the opportunity to put a dummy in his place, it's a good story!

Asked an athiest one time if he was really and truely an athiest.

He said, "Yep".

So I asked, "You don't believe in any god or higher power at all?"

He said, "Nope".

So I said, "You swear?"

He said, "I swear to God!".

Hmmmm? :confused::confused::confused: That's what I thought!

Moral of the story...... "A wise man speaks for he has something to say, a fool for he must say something" (I stole this quote, can't remember who from though). Fools love to run thier mouths and say stupid stuff to draw attention to themselves so they feel important.

Great story, James! :D

I can remember back when I found religion. I do believe it started when I said... "Jesus Christ, don't let my legs fail now!" ;)

A movie that came to mind when I read this, Siege at Fire Base Gloria, the SgtMaj (R.Lee Ermy) had it right,
"A little religious communication might not be a bad idea at this stage of the game. Now myself, I don't take any chances, I talk to Mohamed, Buddha, Mr. Jesus H. Christ Himself and any other religious honchos I can come up with."
