ENJOY THE CONVERSATION IN A CLASSROOM SETTING YEARS AGO
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?
Professor: Is GOD all powerful?
Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would want to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?
Student was silent.
Professor: Is satan good?
Professor: Where does satan come from?
Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it? And GOD did make everything, Correct?
Professor: So who created evil?
Student did not answer.
Professor: Is there sickness? Immorality? Ugliness? Hatred? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: Who created them?
Student had no answer
Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?
Student: No, sir.
Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?
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?
Student: And is there such a thing as cold?
Student: No sir, There isn’t.
The lecture theater became very quiet with this turn of events.
Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat,even more heat,super heat,mega heat,white heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use the 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 was pin-drop silence in the lecture theater.
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, bright light, flashing light, But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and it’s darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t.? . If it is, well you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you.
Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man?
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 been 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 you 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 this process is an on-going endeavor. 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 seen it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, , how are we to 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.
By the way, the student was EINSTEIN.
