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 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 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 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 heat, 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 its 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 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.

By the way, that student was EINSTEIN.

Night Time Ramblings

It is weird, because we haven't even been around each other, but I love Janet so much, I feel like Dailee is my niece also and so I am as excited when big things happen in her life as when they happen in Janet's or my Brother and Sister's kids lives. I'm kinda weird that way I guess. That's why my ex-mother-in-law is still my best friend 14 years later! Tonight I feel like my Granny, who sat up in KY by her self, way into the night waiting for me to call and tell her that my baby that we had prayed for for 7 years had finally arrived! It was wee hours of the morning when I called and she was sitting there waiting, wanted every little detail about him and cried when I told her that it was a boy and his name was Mathew! .....Wow! I am way to nostalgic tonight!! Can you tell that everything is hitting me at once? Today (11th) was my brothers 45th birthday and we had a wonderful conversation. I'm watching my kids grow up too fast! My oldest son went on his own (long story why) and picked out, got the money from Dad, bargained with the lady, and bought our family a car today!! He is playing music in a Senior recital tomorrow night that he didn't "think" to tell us about, because it is "no big deal". My sister is getting married in Oct.!! I thought we were all going, but now...(see new car above) who knows, it may just be me going to TX. I'm so old my wrinkles have warts and my grey hair is turning silver! I asked a photo aging program to age my picture to show me what I would look like when I was 70 and it said it didn't do reverse aging! LOL See, this is what I do when I can't sleep. I write nonsense until I can start laughing at myself or I fall asleep. It's not griping or complaining, it is just the way my brain works. I type one sentence and a word in that one makes me think of something else and so I type that...and on it goes. No rhyme or reason, just me having a conversation with myself! SCARY!! Now when my Mom and/or my Sisters are around, we do this with and for each other...only we don't have to actually finish the whole sentence because we all already know what the others are thinking and talking about. And it makes my Dad CRAZY!!! It has for years! He gets so frustrated. "Why didn't you finish?" I never know what you are saying, because one will start a sentence and another will nod and say I know and take off another direction then before they finish someone else jumps in, and just when I think I'm going to hear a full sentence you all jump to the END of a different one and you all yell it together!! No one can follow that! I don't think you all have a clue what you are talking about! You are just doing that on purpose to make me nuts!"
Wow! I am looking at this book I have written and think I will copy and post it to my Blog instead as an Aud Rambling...this is just too much for Facebook! Night!
