A debate that challenges SCIENCE


Please don’t miss even a single word of this debate…

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? Hmmmm?

(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 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 theatre.)

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 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 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,sir. 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 unfathomable.)

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.

– – – This a true story, and the student was none other than….. Albert Einstein

NB: I believe you have enjoyed the conversation…and if so…you’ll probably want your friends/colleagues to enjoy the same…won’t you? Share This…

  1. oh!!!really it helps me a lot.It makes me able to tell others who are opposing god like this professor.Really this site helps me a lot

  2. Ahhh…. the ignorance of youth. If you want to use Einstein’s position on faith to strengthen your own, you should use all of his words. He elaborated on his spirituality in much more detail as he grew older.
    It’s funny to me that you just assume that Einstein believed in YOUR God. He did not. Faith is not exclusive to Christianity. He believed in the possibility of A God, but he did not believe in the God of the Bible.
    Please read some of these writings by Einstein before you assume that he is in your corner:

  3. Jesus was a Jew, your point? Jews are Gods chosen people. ‘Gods chosen people’ should spred the word, though most don’t, about Jesus. Yet here is Einstein brilliant in the the philisophical and Godliness.

  4. This is completely false.

    did however write “The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and
    product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still
    primitive legends,” “No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for
    me) change this.” Einstein wrote this in a 1954 letter to Jewish philosopher
    Eric Gutkind, one year before Einstein died, in reaction to Gutkind’s book,
    “Choose Life: The Biblical Call to Revolt.”

    blog post is ironic because it actually demonstrates the danger of faith. Here
    we have a completely untrue myth being propagated as truth despite the fact
    that there is easily accessible evidence to the contrary. Einstein lived in
    this century, people who knew him are still alive, his letters and notes are
    easily available to those who value truth. Faith however blinds us to truth, it
    stops us from seeking it out and worst of all it turns us into unwitting liars.
    You’ve posted an untruth not because you are a bad person but because of your
    faith. Faith makes you follow what you want to be true instead of following the
    evidence. The evidence was there…where were you?

  5. Funny of course know that if your going to cite the big E that he believed in the possibility of a “Sponiza’s God” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spinozism over a “Personal God” right?

    Here’s the direct quote, “I believe in Spinoza’s God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with fates and actions of human beings.” New York, April 24, 1921, published in the New York Times, April 25, 1929. Hey guess what, that’s exactly what I said. God IF he exists doesn’t care about you. Looks like me and E are on the same page.
