PROFESSOR:  You are a Christian, aren’t you, son?

STUDENT:  Yes, Sir.
PROFESSOR:  So you believe in God?


PROFESSOR: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him.  Most of us would attempt to help other 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?

PROFESSOR: Is satan good?

PROFESSOR: Where does satan come from?
STUDENT:  From… God

PROFESSOR:  That’s right.  Tell me son, is there evil in this world?

PROFESSOR:  Who created evil?
STUDENT didn’t answer.

PROFESSOR:  Evil is everywhere, isn’t it? And God did make everything correct?

PROFESSOR: So who created evil?
STUDENT didn’t answer.

PROFESSOR:  Is there sickness?  Immorality? Hatred? Uglinness?  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?

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?

STUDENT:  And is there such a thing as cold?

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 ehat, 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 it’s 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’re 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 have 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 I uproar.)
STUDENT:  Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched it 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’s it sir… Exactly!  The link between man and God Is FAITH.  That is all that keeps things alive and moving.

A few months ago, I made a comment on The O’Reilly Factor via Twitter after his interview with the head of the atheist movement.  I didn’t realize that I would get peppered with so many hate replies from them some with sarcastic questions about why I would believe in something that came from nothing referring to my heavenly Father God. 

I knew that I should have ignored them and left them alone however, with my personality, coupled with my passion for God I couldn’t allow myself to do so.  Needless to say, I was up practically all night responding to their shenanigans but I made sure that every answer I gave them was geared towards love and not judgment for their own beliefs.  The reason why I took the time to stand my ground and defend God was because He impressed it in my heart the bible verse which states that if we as Christians stay inside our bubbles talking with fellow Christians about God, what is the challenge there since we are practically preaching to the choir instead of trying to gather more flock for Him.

Let me tell you that this was a very difficult feat.  It is so hard to try to encourage atheists to think with their hearts and not with their minds.  Yes, you are an intellectual but this is why you cannot grasp the concept of God is because you HAVE to think with your heart when it comes to faith.

Needless to say, difficult as it was, they gave up on me and I got the last word.  I found that they gather fellow atheists to chime in with them and two to three people would be attacking you.  Then when one person gets tired, he or she will be replaced by another so there would always be a gang of them negating you.

However, because I spoke love to them and attached bible verses, etc.  they left me alone.  I thought to myself, if there was only one person out of all those who were attacking me realizes that one does not have to be convinced of God’s reality rather just faith in their hearts, they would gain a better understanding of who He really is and maybe seek Him and his own salvation.  I would never know this but God will.

Until my next rant…. LOVE ONE ANOTHER!!!!
