Subject: MARINES...

Two things they teach Marines:

1. Keep your priorities in order.
2. Know when to act without hesitation

A college professor, an avowed atheist, was
teaching his class.

He shocked several of his students when he flatly
stated he was going to
prove there was no God.

Addressing the ceiling he shouted: "God, if you
are real, then I would
like you to knock me off of this platform. I'll
give you 15 minutes."

The lecture room fell silent. You could have heard
a pin fall.

Ten minutes went by.

Again he taunted God, saying, "Here I am, God. I'm
still waiting."

His countdown got down to the last couple of
minutes when a Marine --
just released from active duty and newly
registered in the class --
walked up to the professor, hit him full force in
the face, and sent him
tumbling from his lofty platform.

The professor was out cold!
The students were shocked and babbled in

The young Marine took a seat in the front row and
sat, silent.

The class fell silent as well ..waiting.

Eventually, the professor came to, shaken.

He looked at the young Marine in the front row.

When the professor regained his senses and could
speak he asked: "What's
the matter with you? Why did you do that?"

"God was busy. He sent me."

Thank you, Mark

i heard it before allso evan if its not true it expresses

my view

You believe

That you should punch out anybody that doesn't believe in God?

OK, Fine.

- Collapse -
Oh most certainly

when school teachers push their confused agenda on God and sexual preference they should be punched out.

It is their job and duty to teach, which implies giving both sides, not pushing the side they feel is best for them. That is brain washing my friend.

(What Marine? I didn't see any Marine hit the teacher.)

Perhaps he already taught the other side of the argument, then the marine (the one you didn't see) walked in and started swinging

Do you know which subject the professor (not a school teacher)was teaching?

A silly argument gets an appropriate response.

The response has more thought in it than the professor's 'proof' on the existence of God. The professor got what he asked for. It's now up to him to prove that the blow did not come from God.

Extending the story to real life. What are the odds that the professor went screaming to the administration to get the student punished?

The teacher should call the police.

you need to get a sense of humor

to say you should realize it was a joke but it does have a good idea Grin

- Collapse -
So you do agree
it does have a good idea

If someone doesn't believe in god, you think you should punch them out.

i'm just a'wondrin here

when you surf the net and arrive here, is there a sign hanging on your door?


- Collapse -
That's not what happened. The professor simply got

what he asked for. He just didn't know, when he asked, that there would be a real response. Food for thought?

- Collapse -
(NT) (NT) Ask and ye shall receive. :)
- Collapse -

your really funny

maybe you should offer to explain to the marine why he was wrong just wish i could watch Grin

- Collapse -
IT WAS A JOKE!!! Sheesh!

But, the terrorists do believe that if you disagree with them you should die!

It's not a light topic.

Or do you consider assaults by trained killers on teachers in their classrooms to be a laughing matter?
