Professor and Student's Story about God and Science

An atheist professor of philosophy speaks to his
class on the problem science has with God, The

He asks one of his new Christian students to
stand and.....

Professor: You are a Christian, aren't you, son?

Student : Yes, sir.

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?
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,

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 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

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

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
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

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 endeavour, 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,
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

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. 

Note: I also got this interesting story somewhere and I thought this will help you understand the undiscovered links between God and science.
