Thanks and Happy Veterans' Day

There are two things Navy Seals are always taught;

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

A college professor, avowed atheist and active member of the A.C.L.U. was teaching his college class. He shocked several of his students when he flatly stated that once and for all he was going to prove that there was no God.

Addressing the ceiling he shouted: "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.

"I'm waiting God, if you're real, knock me off this platform!!!"

Again after four minutes, the professor taunted God saying, "Here I am, God-!! I'm still waiting!!!"

His count down got down to the last couple minutes when a Navy Seal, who was just released from the Navy, after serving in Afghanistan and Iraq and had newly registered for the class, walked up to the Professor. The Seal hit him full force in the face. This sent the Professor tumbling from his platform. The Professor was out cold. The students were stunned and shocked.

They began to babble in confusion. The Seal nonchalantly took his seat in the front row and sat in silence. The class looked at him and fell silent also .... waiting. Eventually, the professor came to and was noticeably shaken. He looked at the Seal in the front row. When the professor regained his senses and could speak, he asked:

“What the hell is the matter with you? Why did you do that?”

The Seal said, "God was really busy, protecting America's soldiers, who are protecting your right to say stupid things and act like an ass. So, He sent me!!!"

Thanks to the brave and the strong who give me the chance to sit at this computer and write what I want.
Thank you.

I don't know if it's true. Someone emailed it to me awhile ago. I just copied and pasted it.
