Does GOD exist

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?
(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, 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
Prof: Yes.
Student: No sir. There isn’t .
(The lecture the after 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
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
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
(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,
(The room is silent. The professor
stares at the student, his face
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.
I believe you have enjoyed the
conversation… and if so…you’ll
probably want your friends/
colleagues to enjoy the same… won’t
you?… .this is a true story, and the
student was none other than …….
APJ Abdul Kalam, the former President
of India
