God , Heat and The Darkness

NOTE : I have not written this; I received it from one of my friends.

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? 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. Correct?
Student: Yes.

Prof:
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.

Now the student said can I ask something to you Professor.

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 its 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 is a true story, and the student was none other than

DR. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam , Former President of India

This is just a start..

 

This is just a start….

 

This post is about my dear friend – Dipraj (Yes, the very Dipraj who owns this portal).

 

I once asked him, may be in our second lap of college, “You seem to be quite intelligent.. what are you doing here in LNCT? You deserve to be in IIT!!”

 

He replied,“Had I made it to IIT, how would I ever meet you?”

 

It is always very nice to hear such lines from a guy in your appreciation but for him, it was his way of hiding his pain of not getting into IIT.

 

Third lap of college, Recruitment Fair; he got into TCS, the very first company that came for recruitment. He was happy or pretended to be so. But ask me and I’ll tell you, he was not made for TCS.

 

He also took CAT, got a 90+ percentile but again, ask me and I’ll tell you, he is IIM material. He, for a change, himself confessed, “I didn’t get into IIT, but nothing less than IIM this time..!”

 

He has always been a person who dreams big and also works hard to achieve it but, there still was no end to his misfortune.

 

Faculty members of his department then played foul to deny him the ‘Best Student’ and ‘Best Project’ awards funded by Tata Consultancy Services at that time. Needless to say, his performance card in both the categories was unbeatable.

 

The College Course Ends Here.

 

Now, ‘On The Job Time’:

 

Tata Consultancy Services, Noida: He gave a mind-boggling performance during his training days, only to miss out on the ‘Best Associate’ award.

 

But still, he never let us gauge how heartbroken he was.

 

But just a few months later came the chance for him to show his flair and he grabbed it to blow the minds of ’em all.

 

A game of luck for three days and everything changed.

 

He moved to Hyderabad..

 

Let me correct myself.. He moved to Microsoft, Hyderabad.

 

That ‘ultimate’ destination for a software engineer and he has made it within seven months of his professional life.

 

He doesn’t need razzle-dazzle. His personality is enough to knock you off.

 

But this is surely not the end…

 

Picture.. Abhi Baaki Hai Mere Dost..!!

 

P.S.:  I never told you Dipraj but you have always been my role model and I will keep following in your footsteps.

 

God Bless You..!!
