Who is GOD ?

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 fella. Is God

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

Student : Yes.

Prof: So who created evil?

(Student does not answer.)

Prof: Is there sickness? 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,
smelled 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
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

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 it's 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

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

(The class is in uproar.)

Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever
seen the Professor's
(The class breaks out into laughter.)

Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard
the Professor's brain,
felt it, touched or smelled 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,

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

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

Student : That is it, sir.. The link between man &
god is FAITH. That is
all that keeps things moving & alive.

You know who this young man was ?
