One Nation Under God

I put this here because it has to do with religon

A college professor, an avowed Atheist, was teaching his class He shocked
several of his students when he flatly stated he was going to prove there
is 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 15 minutes!"

The lecture room fell silent. You could have heard a pin fall. Ten minutes
went by. Again he taunted God, saying, "Here I am, God. I'm still
waiting."

His countdown got down to the last couple of minutes when a Marine, just
released from active duty and newly registered in the class walked up to
the professor, hit him full force in the face, and sent him butt over
teacups from his lofty platform. The professor was out cold!

At first the students were shocked and babbled in confusion. The young
Marine took a seat in the front row and sat silent. The class fell silent...waiting.

Eventually, the professor came to, shaken. He looked at the young Marine in the front row.

When the professor regained his senses and could speak, he asked: "What's the matter with you? Why did you do that?"

“God was busy. He sent me."

hahaha! That's kind of funny! Kind of sounds like people who do something bad and say that God made them do it. :P

The thing about the pledge of allegiance was that it was changed in the fifties to include under god. For a hundred years before that it was "one, nation, indivisable, with liberty etc. etc."

I think you have something there, blindeye01. That could be why it is constitutional to change the pledge.

Woah! That would have to be one funny joke to get one's 'spirit' to pop out their nose! But this one is definitely funny enough to have made me spit out a little bit of orange juice when I first saw it! :lol:

EDIT: Yep - I'm 1250 now, and I have the three golden pins! Yay! I'm a Commander! I'm going to go ahead and edit my avatar to reflect that change!

I honestly do not care about the pledge being with or without God anymore. It does not change my true self.

Still, the professor never did prove if god did in fact exisit or not.
