A Canadian Soldier at University

A Canadian soldier was attending some university courses between deployments. He had completed tours in Bosnia, and just returned from Afghanistan . One of the courses had a professor who was an avowed atheist.

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 punched 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 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 Canada's soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid shit and act like an A-hole, so He sent me."

The Christians seem to be copying the Moslems.

Rob, I don't think either the Professor or the Soldier specified whether god was Christian or Moslem. It could have been either, both or one in the same!

More to the point is why is this soldier is at university when he thinks he can solve problems with his fists rather than reason?

Jim, you need an edjamacation so you you know who to hit.

Another liberal waiting for someone else to do the heavy lifting while he is still 'reasoning' things out.

Canadian soldiers do enough brave true stuff without being attributed with recycled tales like this.

I guess only us neo-theo-geo-leo-cons understand when something is a joke or a made-up anecdote to make a point. Liberals feel the need to get all sherlock holmes on our a$$es and 'get to the bottom' of what is obvious to everyone else.

What I think is ironic is we get someone who probably professes to be a 'progresive' telling us a person who works with their hands has no business trying to get an education.

Implication... It is okay to hit people who disagree with your beliefs in public and require proof? It would have been funny if he'd fallen off the stage.

I'm not a liberal and I don't find this funny.
