The Professor, God, and A Navy Seal


To all the men and women who have served or are serving in our military & to their families – Thank you for your service, God speed …

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, 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!”

Then as the professor’s challenge was down to the last couple minutes . . . 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, knocking the professor out cold and tumbling from his platform.

The students were stunned and shocked . . . and then began to babble in confusion.

The Seal, nonchalantly took his seat in the front row and sat in silence . . . ignoring the puzzled stares of his classmates, who also fell silent in wait.

Eventually, the professor regained consciousness and staggered to his feet. Looking at the Seal in the front row, the professor still somewhat shaken, angrily asked, “What the heck is the matter with you? Why did you do that?”

The Navy Seal met the questioning gaze of his professor with steely resolve and said, “God was really busy, protecting America’s soldiers, who are protecting your right to say stupid things and act like a jerk. So, He sent me!”

Note: There are two things Navy Seals are always taught:

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