I got this in my email today, and enjoyed reading it.

Though maybe you'll enjoy it as well.


> 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 theater 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 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, 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, 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, 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 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 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.
>
> P.S.
>
> I believe you have enjoyed the conversation. And if so, you’ll probably want your friends / colleagues to enjoy the same, won’t you?
>
> Forward this to increase their knowledge … or FAITH.
>
> By the way, that student was EINSTEIN.

Nice. Not sure I believe the conversation ever took place, but it does make one think.
By the way, I think the part about "evil not existing, and is just an absence of good" was left out.

The student was Einstein? Am I missing something here?

Nice story, but it is inaccurate.

The student in the story was not Einstein. Einstein's name was used for strategic purposes.

This "convo" is in many ATS threads, in reality that convo would never take place, unless between 2 retards.

Good job on failing to be anti logic.

Lol, if this was in Jokes/pun forum, then i would have laughed, Religion forum is slowly recovering from all the "love god or go to hell" threads from the last 2 weeks.

But im not angry
!~!

Very cool story indeed. I'm not sure if its true or not, and kind of doubtful it was einstein, but still a very interesting read.

I might go google to see if this conversation actually took place.
