    He acts in mysterious ways!
    A Marine was attending a college course between missions. The professor, an avowed atheist, shocked the class one day when he walked in, looked toward the ceiling, and said loudly, "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 and the professor began his lecture. Ten minutes went by and the professor proclaimed, "Here I am God - still waiting."

    It got down to the last minute when the Marine stood up, walked toward the professor and threw his best punch knocking him off the platform and out cold. The Marine went back to his seat and sat down.

    The other students were shocked and stunned and sat there looking on in silence. The professor came to, noticeably shaken, looked at the Marine and asked, "What is the matter with you? Why did you do that?"

    The Marine calmly replied, "God is busy protecting America's soldiers, who are protecting your right to behave like an idiot, so He sent His message through me."

    That's not at ALL funny - it's horrifying. McCarthy era all over again ... spy on your teachers and get PAID?! WTF?!! Horrrible - While I do think many university professors are TOO outspoken about their personal and political beliefs, this is just wrong.

    I'm not an athiest nor am I a God fearing or adoring individual, but I liked the marine decking the idiot prof. :-) Mostly because it's not the prof's business to be spouting off about religion, God, politics or anything other than the damn subject he's supposed to be teaching. A professor trying to influence a KID toward his/her way of thinking is all wrong too. There should be boundaries but offering rewards for turning in a teacher (or anyone else) is criminal.

    The "joke" is not all that innocent.

    Thatís funny, when I was in college courses I appreciated professors bring in their real views. For every time I heard a college professor state a well formed view I can count at least 30 times I heard student weaken the academic pool by blurting out a personally biased ad hominem attack.

    I admit that I get an amused smile from that joke. Still it distills venomous nationalism and a weak rhetoric argument into a single action that implicitly condones violent treatment of people you disagree with you.
