An interesting conversation.

An atheist prof. Of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem science has with God, the Almighty.
He asks one of his new student to stand and..
Prof        : so u believe in God ?

Student :  absolutely ,sir.

Prof       : is God good.?

Student: sure

Prof       : is God all-powerfull?
Student:  yes.

Prof       : my brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would   attempt to help other who are ill. But God didn’t . how is this God good then .?

Student: hmm..

Prof      : you cant answer ,can you.? Let’s stars again,young fella. 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 thereevil 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:  ....................  

Prof       : is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred.? Ugliness.? All these terrible things exists in the world. Don’t they?

Student: yes,sir.

Prof      : who created them.?

Student: ..........(no answer)

Prof       : science says you have 5 sense you use to identify and observe tho world around you.Tell me son,how have you ever seen God,?

Student: no, sir.

Prof       : tell us if you ever heard God?

Student: no,sir.

Prof       : have you felt you 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 God.?

Student: yes ,sir.
Prof       : according to empirical testable,demonstrable protocol,science says that 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: prof, is there such thing as heat?

Prof      : yes.

Student:  and is there anything such as cold.?

Prof       : yes.

Student:  no, sir.  There isn’t.. sir, you can have lots of heat,even more 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’s 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 oh heat,sir. Just the absence of heat.
What about darkness,sir.? Is there such thing as darkness.?

Prof      : yes,what is night is there isn’tdarkness.

Student: you’re wrong again sir, darness is the absence of something.
You can have low light, bright light, flashing light. But if you hve no light constantly, you have nothing and it’s called darkness. Isn’t?
In reality,darness isn’t it.if it were,u would be ablemake darkness more darker.wouldn’t u.?

Prof      : so,what’s isthe point you’re making.? Young man.

Students: sir , you’re working on the premise of argue there’s life and death
.a good God, a bad God. You’re viewing the concept of God as something finite.something we can measure.
Sir, science cant even explain a thought. It use 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 sir. Do u teach your student that they evolved from monkey.?

Prof      : if you’re reffering to the natural evolutionary process, yesof course,i do.

Student: have you ever observe the evolution with your own eyes.?

Prof      : (the prof. Shake his head with a smile,beginning  to realize where the arguments going)

Student: since no one has ever observed the proces of evolution at word and cant even prove that the process is an on-going endevour,are you not teaching you opinion,sir.?

Prof     : ..............

Student:  is there any one here in this class who has ever seen the professor’s brain.?

Prof      :  ...........(the class turn to laughter)

Student :  is there anyone has ever heard the prof.brain.? felt it.? Touchedi or smell it.? No one never appear    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 trust you lectures .sir.?

Prof      : (class room silent,the prof stares at the student) i guess ypu’ll have to take them on FAITH ,son.....
