The Truth is Out There

August 6, 2004

An East Coast Ivy League atheist professor was teaching a university class and he told the class that he was going to prove that there is no God.

He said, “God, if you are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform. I’ll give you 15 minutes!”

Ten minutes went by all the time taunting God, “Here I am, God. I’m still waiting.”

As the last minute approached he smugly smiled.

A young US. Marine, just released from active duty and newly registered in the class, walked up to the professor, hit him full force on the chin sending him flying from his platform and crashing to the floor.

The professor struggled up, badly shaken and yelled, “What’s the matter with you? Why did you do that?”

The Marine replied, “God was busy. He sent The Marines.”

And for the record, I wasn’t even a Marine, but this is still too good not to post. I also know that this is an old joke, but I like this specific twist on it.
