    A Soldiers Duty...

    A soldier from the United States Army was attending some college courses. 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 Soldier 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 Soldier 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 Soldier and asked, "What the hell is the matter with you? Why did you do that?" The Soldier calmly replied, "God was too busy today protecting America's soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid **** and act like an a'hole. So he sent me."

    God Bless America and all the men and women in the Armed Forces protecting our freedoms.

    -Laurence

    I'd love that to be true, but according to Snopes, it's not. That story is a variation of a Marine hitting the professor, a SEAL hitting the professor; which are all variations of Albert Einstein arguing with a professor about God:
