Navy SEAL playing God!! Normally, I'm a Marine Girl, but I'll make an exception!!!

While I love every branch of our great Military, my favorite is the Marines! However, this is one cool story about a Navy SEAL!!!!!!

Navy SEALS are always taught:
1. Keep your priorities in order
2. Know when to act without hesitation

A college professor, an atheist and ACLU activist, was teaching his class. He shocked several of his students when he flatly stated that once and for all he was going to prove 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 4 minutes, the professor taunted God saying, "Here I am, God!!! I'm still waiting!!!"His count down got down to the last minute when a SEAL, recently returned from serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, now pursuing a college education and registered in this professor's class, walked up to the Professor.The SEAL hit him full force in the face, and sent the Professor tumbling from his lofty platform. The Professor was knocked 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 silent.The class looked at him and fell silent.....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!?""God was really busy protecting American soldiers, sailors, and marines who are out protecting your right to behave like an idiot and make really stupid statements ......So he sent me!"
