Does God Exist ?


Professor : You are a Muslim, 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 theatre 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, were 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.





P.S.

I believe you have enjoyed the conversation. And if so, you’ll probably want your friends / 


colleagues to enjoy the same, won’t you?



Forward this to increase their knowledge … or FAITH.
