Titbits! Taken from a forwarded e-mail from Karen. Thanks!

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, of course, 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.

Uh...I don't feel like blogging now. Not in the mood. But I have to. Because I haven't blogged for a long time. Okay, that doesn't make sense, doesn't it? Oh well...So boring. Even though its the school holidays. 14 days. Quite short, and boring. The worst thing is, after the holidays, then only I get the idea of what to do during the holidays, but then it would have been too late. Its sad rite? LOL...I blog in some more, if I really do feel like. In the meantime, happy holidays!!!

Hello! Its me again...Boo! =P Hehehehe...now I'm doing nothing, just fiddling around. I can't play Game boy, because my mother took it away. She thinks that I play too much and ignoring my studies. I hate to admit it, but that part is 'actually TRUE!' But, I HAVE THE RIGHT TO PLAY IT! ITS NOT FAIR! THE EXAMS HAD JUST FINISHED, AND NOW MIST STUDY AGAIN. WHAT THE H3LL?!

After 'negotiating' with my Mom, she finally let me play! Horray! But only on Friday to Sunday afternoons. For the rest of the week, study, study, study! (Or play computer games;) )Boring, but its either I take it or leave it. Oh well, at least I can get to play, its better than not at all! Anyways, I have to update my Reading record; had just finished my Pokemon Ruby game, I am only training up a new team, waiting for 2 days to get a discount from the Energy Guru, and I need to play Neopets. I wonder what had happened to my Neopet...

I had just received wonderful news from Jim and Jia Wei. Jessica beat Adrienne in Scrabble! You heard me?! She beated him! MUA-HAHAHAHAHAHHA...And Jia Wei beated Anand. I'm so happy for him. Now Jia Wei is going against Jessica in the semi-finals, he should be finished by now. I hope he wins. GO, JIA WEI!!!

Jason S. said that Jia Wei could not beat her, because Jessica killed Adrienne by 7 points! (BTW, he is one of the best players.) But I have faith in Jia Wei; Jessica's just lucky. Anyway, jokingly, I told Jason that he likes her, since he supports her instead of Jia Wei. And you know what he had said? Well, I'm not telling! =P

Commerce project is coming up, and I had posted details about it in the F2Y Blog. Sigh, Mrs. Samuel says that the people that I had put into my group is too 'smart'. Humph! No fair! She says that she is going to kick out some 'smarty-pants'. I hope I won't team up with people who $uck$ in this.

Whoops, I wrote too much. Ehehheehe...see you all later! Take care!

I lost to Adrienne in Scrabble Competition!!! But, I am terribly happy that Jia Wei beated my rival(*coughJiaJiacough*)! I felt a bit disappointed, but then, I guess its natural that I lost because he has more experience than me...Furthermore, I did my best, so I have no regrets, LOL! I guess its just bad luck running into him that early in the game. So...=D

Oh well, so far so good. Still playing Pokemon Ruby, and building up a new team. Not playing new game lah, just building them for Battle Tower reasons. Dum-de-dum-dum. Whoops, got to run along now, bye-bye!

ZZZZZZZZZ----IIIIIIIIII-----PPPPPPPP!!!!!!~
