Arrow interesting conversation

INTERESTING CONVERSATION
An atheist professor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem science has with God, The Almighty.


He asks one of his new Muslim students to stand and.....

Professor: You are a Muslim, aren't you, son?

Student : Yes, sir.

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 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, ofcourse, 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 endeavour, 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.

Mashaallah very nicely written.i would like to add another point to it which came into my mind while i was reading this conversation Allah's presence in this universe is like a software n universe like a hardware ( as one cannot see a soft ware but it makes the comp go on.)
n v should enquire about the stand of Quran in matter of aquisition of knowledge in general n that of science in particular.there r few verses of Quran which i would like to quote

We created not the heavens,the earth n all b/w them,but for just purpose n the hour is surely coming(when this will be manifest) (15:85)

He it is Who fashions you inthe wombs as He pleases.there is no Allah except He,the Exalted,the Wise(3:6)

proclaim!in the name of ur Lord n Cherisher, Who created
men out of a congealed blood. proclaim!n ur Lord is most bountiful,He Who taught the use of pen ,taught men that which he never knew(96:1-5)


as far as scientific indications in Quran r concerned almost one -eighth of the total number of verses in Quran r devoted to science n technology.if one gets a proper knowledge of Quran than it will be very easy for that person to talk to any one about anything even to the atheists who donot believe in presence of Allah n believe more in science.

kuch teray zehen main aqal e rasa hai keh nahein
aqal sey pooch raha hai key khuda hai key nahein
chusm e beena ho salamut tu ho rooshun tujh per
zarrey zarrey main Khuda jalwa numa hai key nahein
