Read This from starting , This is really too good .
The Argument that great

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
How is this God good then? Hmm?

(Student is silent.)

Prof: You can't answer, can you? Let's start
again, young fellow. 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.

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 serve
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, smelled 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

Student: Professor, is there such a thing as

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
any thing 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

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

Prof: Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?

Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the
absence of
You can have low light, normal light, bright
light, flashing
if you have no light constantly, you have nothing
and it is 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

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

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


(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 smelled 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

Prof: I guess you'll have to take them on faith,

Student: That is it, sir.. The link between man &
god is FAITH. That
is all that keeps things moving & alive.

That young man was
