" An AtheistProfessor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem science has with ALLAH, The Almighty.
He asks one of his newStudents to stand and.....
Prof: So you believe in ALLAH?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Prof: Is ALLAH good?
Prof: Is ALLAH all-powerful?
Prof: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to ALLAH to heal him.
Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But ALLAH didn't. How is this ALLAH good then? Hmm?
Prof: You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, young fella. Is ALLAH good?
Prof: Is Satan good?
Prof: Where does Satan come from?
Student: From...ALLAH. . ..
Prof: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Prof: Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And ALLAH did make everything. Correct?
Prof: So who created evil?
(Studentdoes 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?
(Studenthas 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 ALLAH?
Student: No, sir.
Prof: Tell us if you have ever heard your ALLAH?
Student: No, sir.
Prof: Have you ever felt your ALLAH, tasted your ALLAH, smelt your ALLAH? Have you ever had any sensory perception of ALLAH for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Prof: Yet you still believe in Him?
Prof: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your ALLAH 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?
Student: And is there such a thing as cold?
Student: No sir. There isn't.
(The lecture theater 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 theater.)
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 ALLAH and a bad ALLAH. You are viewing the concept of ALLAH 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 yourStudents 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?
(TheProfessor 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 theProfessor's brain?
(The class breaks out into laughter.)
Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard theProfessor'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. TheProfessor stares at theStudent, his face unfathomable. )
Prof: I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.
Student: That is it sir......The link between man & ALLAH is FAITH. That is all that keeps things moving & alive.
