A VERY INTERESTING CONVERSATION

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his Class on the Problem Science has with GOD, the ALMIGHTY. He asked one of his New Christian Students to stand and . . .

Professor: You are a Christian, aren't you, son?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor: So, you believe in GOD?

Student : Absolutely, sir.

Professor: Is GOD Good?

Student : Sure.

Professor: Is GOD ALL - POWERFUL?

Student : Yes.

Professor: 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 was silent)

Professor: You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, Young Fella.

Is God good?

Student: Yes.

Professor: Is Satan good?

Student: No.

Professor: Where does Satan come from?

Student: From . . . GOD . . .

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

Student : Yes.

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

Student : Yes.

Professor: So who created evil?

(Student did not answer)

Professor: Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the World, don't they?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor: So, who created them?

(Student had no answer)

Professor: 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.

Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?

Student : No, sir.

Professor: 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.

Professor: Yet you still believe in HIM?

Student : Yes.

Professor: 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.

Professor: Yes, Faith. And that is the Problem Science has.

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

Professor: Yes.

Student : And is there such a thing as Cold?

Professor: Yes.

Student : No, sir. There isn't.

(The Lecture Theatre became 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 Meausure Cold. Heat is energy.

Cold is Not the Opposite of Heat, sir, just the Absence of it.

(There was Pin-Drop Silence in the Lecture Theatre)

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

Professor: 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 is, were you would be able to make Darkness Darker, wouldn't you?

Professor: So what is the point you are making, Young Man?

Student : Sir, my point is your Philosophical Premise is flawed.

Professor: 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?

Professor: 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 shook his head with a Smile, beginning to realize where the Argument was 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 was in Uproar)

Student : Is there anyone in the Class who has ever seen the Professor's Brain?

(The Class broke 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 was Silent. The Professor stared at the Student, his face unfathomable)

Professor: I guess you'll have to take them on Faith, son.

Student : That is it sir . . . Exactly!

The Link between Man & GOD is FAITH.

That is all that Keeps Things Alive and Moving.

“If we were logical, the future would be bleak indeed. But we are more than logical.

We are human beings, and we have faith and we have hope.â€

Annelize,

The student was not Albert Einstein,as emphatically stated by atheists on another thread. Maybe you should edit out the part that says it was him because you will get replies on that and it seems that people latch onto that fact only. The fact that Albert Einstein did not in fact say that doesn't make the argument less true though!

:rolleyes::ilikeit:

Another fascinating conversation; enjoy!

Who are you?

-author unknown

WHO ARE you?

My name is Peter.

If you went to Nicaragua, you'd be called Pedro. Are Pedro and Peter one person or two?

One, because I am only who I am.

Are you a name?

No, of course not.

Then who are you?

I am a man.

You mean you are not a woman?

No. I mean that I am a man.

But you are only a man because you are not a woman.

Who are you?

I am an Englishman.

If you went to Japan, would you be a Japanese man?

No.

Why?

Because I was born in England and I speak English.

If you had been born in England but raised in China, would you be Chinese or English?

I would be English.

Oh, then, you are not a person, rather you are a country.

Who are you?

I am the grandson of a famous Arctic explorer. He returned from the North Pole with a frozen polar bear in the hull of his ship.

And which do you think you are defined more by, your grandfather or the polar bear?

How could I be defined by my family? I'm just me.

Then you are more like a single polar bear?

No. I am an intelligent, accomplished man. That's what everyone says.

Now, let me see: you are Peter who is intelligent and accomplished and special because your grandfather was a famous Arctic explorer. What else sets you apart?

My youngest daughter is a world-class gymnast and my mother died when I was a child.

Ah, you are Peter the tragic, Peter the successful. Which would you say is the real you: a motherless son or the father of a successful daughter?

Both are within me.

Where?

Where do you mean?

I mean, is this within you closer to your head or your toes?

Perhaps in between. Closer to my heart.

It's a feeling?

Yes.

How big is it?

I'm not sure.

What color is it?

It doesn't have a color.

A form?

No.

But it's inside you?

Yes.

If we cut open your heart, could we see it?

I don't suppose so.

Then where is it?

I don't know.

Are you sure it is inside you?

Where else could it be?

Look again. Come here. Look in the mirror. Do you see intelligence? grandfather? accomplishment? gymnast?

No.

Do you see English?

No.

Do you see Peter?

I don't know.

Good. Now we can begin. Who are you?

Check out the previous thread on aethism. This matter has already been discussed extensively. You can also check out the story that i posted.

These are entertaining but prove nothing.

Have a good day.
