    Question True Story?

    So this was sent to me in email form as a chain letter from one of my very religious friends.
    Many good points are brought up, but most are very arguable and contradict what they are trying to say..
    I would have thought that the student in question would have had better arguments? or not questioned the professor at all. Do you guys know if this is in fact a true story?(as the email claims)

    Heres the story...

    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 P ray ed 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.

    That student was Albert Einstein

    Wow, if that is real, I have even greater respect for Mr. Einstein. Sounds like the professor was somewhat close-minded as well. I'm surprised he messed up on the "cold" question.

    Thanks for the post!

    Einstein left Germany because he was being persecuted for being a Jew right? I just don't see him debating religion. But here is something that sounds like an urban legend. There was a real good article about this Physician that had Einstein's brain in a jar for years. The Dr. kept it after the autoposy and pretty much went downhill after that. "The Long, Strange Journey of Einstein's Brain"

    So it looks to be a myth.
    They question the professor about the existence of his brain? If they are interacting with him then there is no doubt about the existence of his brain.

    Good post
    Sadly if you want to deny GOD you can point many things and some of them really make sense like this :
    Long time ago 4 children found 10 coins , they wanted to devide it but they figured out they can't share it with fair so they went to a wise man . the wise man told do i have to share it Like God or like a human? children said of course like GOD , GOD is good , GOD is fair. wise man said ok , he gave 1st child 5 coins , 4 coins to 2nd one , 1 coin to 3rd child and he punched 4th child in face ! children asked why you act like this ? wise man told them look around , isn't it the GOD way to share his flavours?
    BTW we can reach below absolute zero ,very recently some Japanese Scientists reached below 0 Kelvin degree
