One day, during class, the professor asked one of his students, “You are a Christian, aren’t you?” The student said yes.
Then, the professor asked him if he believed in God. Once again, the student replied yes.
The professor also asked his student if God is good and all-powerful. His student answered yes for both questions.
The professor said shortly after, “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?”
The student was silent.
“You can’t answer, can you? Let’s start again, young fella. Is God good?” asked the professor and the student nodded yes.
“Where does Satan come from?” questioned the teacher. The student replied, “From God.”
“That’s right. Tell me, son, is there evil in this world?” he further prodded. The student said yes.
He then said, “Evil is everywhere, isn’t it? And God did make everything. Correct? So who created evil?”
Once again, the student fell silent.
“Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?” said the professor.
“Yes, sir,” replied his student.
“Science says you have five senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen God?” continued the educator.
The student said, “No, sir.”
“Tell us if you have ever heard your God? Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God for that matter?” the professor asked, trying to prove a point.
“No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t,” the student replied.
Then, the professor asked his student if he still believed in his God, to which the students said yes.
“According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your God doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?”
The student answered that he had nothing to say and that he only had his faith.
Just as the professor thought the conversation was over, the student suddenly asked him if there was such a thing as heat. The teacher was quick to reply yes.
Next, the student asked if there was such a thing as cold, and once again, the professor said yes. But the student replied, “No, sir. There isn’t.”
At that point, everyone in the room was quiet and had been intently listening to the exchange.
“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,” explained the student.
The silence continued until the student asked again, “What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?”
His professor answered, “Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?”
The student confidently answered back, “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?”
Confused, the professor asked his student what the point of his statement was.
The student replied, “Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.”
The professor asked him how he arrived at his conclusion.
He was stating that death is not the opposite of life but just the absence of it. The student then asked his professor if he believed that people evolved from a monkey, to which the teacher said yes.
“Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?” asked the student.
The professor shook his head and smiled because he was starting to realize the point his student was making.
“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?” said his student.
By then, the entire class was cracking up and cheering for their classmate.
“Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?” the student announced in class.
His classmates continued to laugh.
The room became silent again, and the professor’s had his poker face on.
He then spoke up, “I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.”
Then the student enthusiastically said, “That is it, sir! Exactly! The link between man and God is faith. That is all that keeps things alive and moving.”
There you have it. The professor was left speechless after he attempted to invalidate his student’s beliefs. As for who the student was, he was none other than Albert Einstein.
