    An atheist professor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem Science has with God, The Almighty.


    He asks one of his new students to stand and.....

    Prof: So you believe in God?

    Student: Absolutely, sir.


    Prof: Is God good?

    Student: Sure.




    Prof: Is God all-powerful?

    Student: Yes.


    Prof: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him.


    Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn't. How is this God good then? Hmm? (Student is silent.)


    Prof: You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, young fellow. Is God good?

    Student: Yes.


    Prof: Is Satan good ?

    Student: No.


    Prof: Where does Satan come from?

    Student: From...God.. .


    Prof: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?

    Student: Yes.


    Prof: Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything. Correct?

    Student: Yes.


    Prof: So who created evil?

    (Student does not answer. )



    Prof: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?

    Student: Yes, sir.



    Prof: So, who created them?

    ( Student has no answer.)



    Prof: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son...Have you ever seen God?

    Student: No, sir.



    Prof: Tell us if you have ever heard your God?

    Student: No, sir.


    Prof: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God for that matter?

    Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.



    Prof: Yet you still believe in Him ?

    Student: Yes.



    Prof: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?

    Student: Nothing. I only have my faith.



    Prof: Yes. Faith. And that is the problem science has.



    Student: Professor, is there such a thing as heat?

    Prof: Yes.



    Student: And is there such a thing as cold?

    Prof: Yes.



    Student: No sir. There isn't.


    (The lecture theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events .)



    Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don't have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat,


    But we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold.


    Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.



    (There is pin-drop silence in the lecture theatre .)


    Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?

    Prof: Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?



    Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light....But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't.


    If it were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?



    Prof: So what is the point you are making, young man?

    Student: Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.

    Prof: Flawed? Can you explain how?



    Student: Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure.


    Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one.


    To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?


    Prof: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.

    Student: Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?


    (The Professor shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is going.)



    Student: Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavour, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?


    (The class is in uproar .)


    Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain?


    (The class breaks out into laughter.)


    Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, sir.


    With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?



    (The room is silent . The professor stares at the student, his face unfathomable. )



    Prof: I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.


    Student: That is it sir... The link between man & god is FAITH .

    That is all that keeps things moving & alive....... ......... ..

      That is false. Most certainly any Professor would answer that cold is simply a lack of heat.



      Also false, a Professor would know darkness is just the absence of light.



      False, EEG's measure the electrical activity of the brain.



      False. Professor would never teach that we evolved from monkeys. Humans and monkeys both evolved from earlier primates.



      False. Scientist have observed evolution at work, microbiology.



      False, we can see the brain using an MRI. We can touch, see and smell the brain by opening up the skull.



      Of course, this was copied from any one of dozens of religious websites that haven't the integrity or honesty to do much else but fabricate or print stuff like this. smile

      I like it just the way you presented this story !!!

         And there are some people that will argue with a fence post concerning its existence .......  And when a rebuttal isn't forthcoming; they think that they have proven themselves to be correct.

      This is a lie and based on one's irrational belief in a god. hmm

        From one fence post to another ..  I'd say that we just don't know what we don't know.

          Have you even checked beelzedads post. Oh wait you cant even digest science right?

          We just don't know what we don't know? roll

          The lack of knowledge and wisdom you have for a person of your age is absolutely appalling. All you're good for is twisting people's words. You continue to spout off the same Sh!t.

          Must be nice living a life of confusion.

            Are you reading my mind again ? You take the words right out of my mouth.

    “No God is” just an illusion; the Creator-God Allah YHWH is a reality.
    Those who don't know God should rectify their illusion.

      You had claimed in another thread that your knowledge of Allah came from your parents and the Quran.

      So, how do you rectify your illusion? smile

    I guess it is better to try for both-no god and know god- and then come up with your own personal idea about what is more appropriate to you.
