I would like to share this forwarded email I received from my sister last September 7.


 A VERY   INTERESTING  CONVERSATION

An  Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his Class on the  Problem Science has
With GOD ,  the ALMIGHTY .  He asked one  of his New Christian  Students to stand and . . .
    
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 ?
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 Theatre 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 Theatre )

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, were 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.


NB:  

I  believe you have enjoyed the Conversation . . . and if so .. .  
You'll probably want your Friends & Families to enjoy the  same . . . won't you?
Forward them to Increase their Knowledge  . . . or FAITH  .  
That  student was Albert  Einstein .
