AN INTERESTING CONVERSATION …
>>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
>>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?
>>Sudent 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 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 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 endeavor, 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.
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>NB:
>>
>>I believe you have enjoyed the conversation...and if so...you'll probably
>>want your friends/colleagues to enjoy the same...won't you? So do forward
>>them to increase their knowledge... this is a true story, and the student
>>was none other than.........
>>
>>Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, the present president of India.
