Science vs. God

Science vs. God

"Let me explain the problem science has with Jesus Christ." The
atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks
one of his new students to stand.

"You're a Christian, aren't you, son?"

"Yes sir," the student says.

"So you believe in God?"


"Is God good?"

"Sure! God's good."

"Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?"


"Are you good or evil?"

"The Bible says I'm evil."

The professor grins knowingly. "Aha! The Bible!" He considers for a

"Here's one for you. Let's say there's a sick person over here and you
can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?"

"Yes sir, I would."

"So you're good!"

"I wouldn't say that."

"But why not say that? You'd help a sick and maimed person if you
could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn't."

The student does not answer, so the professor continues. "He doesn't,
does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he
prayed to Jesus to heal him How is this Jesus good? Hmmm? Can you
answer that one?"

The student remains silent.

"No, you can't, can you?" the professor says. He takes a sip of water
from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax.

"Let's start again, young fella Is God good?"

"Uh...yes," the student says.

"Is Satan good?"

The student doesn't hesitate on this one. "No."

"Then where does Satan come from?"

The student : "From God..."

"That's right. God made Satan, didn't he? Tell me, son. Is there evil
in this world?"

"Yes, sir."

"Evil's everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything, correct?"


"So who created evil?" The professor continued, "If God created
everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to
the principle that our works define who we are, then God is evil."

Without allowing the student to answer, the professor continues: "Is
there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible
things, do they exist in this world?"

The student: "Yes."

"So who created them?"

The student does not answer again, so the professor repeats his
question. "Who created them?" There is still no answer. Suddenly the
lecturer breaks away to pace in front of the classroom. The class is

"Tell me," he continues onto another student. "Do you believe in Jesus
Christ, son?"

The student's voice is confident: "Yes, professor, I do."

The old man stops pacing. "Science says you have five senses you use
to identify and observe the world around you. Have you ever seen

"No sir. I've never seen Him"

"Then tell us if you've ever heard your Jesus?"

"No, sir, I have not."

"Have you ever actually felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelt
your Jesus? Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ,
or God for that matter?"

"No, sir, I'm afraid I haven't."

"Yet you still believe in him?"


"According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol,
science says your God doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?"

"Nothing," the student replies. "I only have my faith."

"Yes, faith," the professor repeats. "And that is the problem science
has with God. There is no evidence, only faith."

The student stands quietly for a moment, before asking a question of
his own. "Professor, is there such thing as heat?"

"Yes," the professor replies. "There's heat."

"And is there such a thing as cold?"

"Yes, son, there's cold too."

"No sir, there isn't."

The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested. The
room suddenly becomes very quiet. The student begins to explain.

"You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat,
unlimited heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don't
have anything called 'cold'. We can hit up to 458 degrees below zero,
which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no
such thing as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the
lowest -458 degrees. Every body or object is susceptible to study when
it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter
have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-458 F) is the total absence
of heat. You see, sir, cold is only a word we use to describe the
absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat we can measure in
thermal units because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of
heat, sir, just the absence of it."

Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the classroom,
sounding like a hammer.

"What about darkness, professor. Is there such a thing as darkness?"

"Yes," the professor replies without hesitation. "What is night if it
isn't darkness?"

"You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it 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? That's the meaning we use to
define the word. In reality, darkness isn't. If it were, you would be
able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?"

The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him. This
will be a good semester. "So what point are you making, young man?"

"Yes, professor. My point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to
start with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed."

The professor's face cannot hide his surprise this time. "Flawed? Can
you explain how?"

"You are working on the premise of duality," the student explains.
"You argue that there is life and then there's 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?"

"If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man,
yes, of course I do"

"Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?"

The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he realizes
where the argument is going. A very good semester, indeed.

"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 now not a scientist, but a

The class is in uproar. The student remains silent until the commotion
has subsided.

"To continue the point you were making earlier to the other student,
let me give you an example of what I mean."

The student looks around the room. "Is there anyone in the class who
has ever seen the professor's brain?" The class breaks out into

"Is there anyone here who has ever heard the professor's brain, felt
the profe ssor's brain, touched or smelled the professor's brain? 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, with all due respect, sir. So if science says you have no
brain, how can we trust your lectures, sir?"

Now the room is silent. The professor just stares at the student, his
face unreadable.

Finally, after what seems an eternity, the old man answers. "I guess
you'll have to take them on faith."

"Now, you accept that there is faith, and, in fact, faith exists with
life," the student continues. "Now, sir, is there such a thing as

Now uncertain, the professor responds, "Of course, there is. We see it
everyday. It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity to man. It is
in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These
manifestations are nothing else but evil."

To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist sir, or at least it
does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is
just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe
the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of
what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart.
It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness
that comes when there is no light."

The professor sat down.

McCain: "Falwell and His Type are Agents of Intolerance.

Agents of Intolerance

Although Senator McCain has changed his tone concerning evangelicals since 2000, I honestly doubt that his true opinion has changed. At this point, I'm still willing to give him my vote but that's subject to change based on who he or the party chooses as his running mate.

There are times when I'm not so sure if it really matters any way. Bush has done a lot of damage to the party over the last eight years. There is a good chance that many Republican voters have been made so disenchanted by President Bush and the Republican party that they may just stay home or cast their vote for the other side.

Another factor is the war. Most Democratic voters are voting to end the war once and for all. McCain's GOP nomination was primarily based on the opinion that as a military hawk, he's better qualified to handle national security. This will be his down fall in November if one is to factor in all the Ron Paul voters with the Barack Hussein Obama supporters. There is no question in my mind, especially if Barack Hussein Obama wins the Democratic nomination that, McCain will be effectively villafied as a warlord.

Senator McCain must unify the Republican party in order to win the General Election in November. His only hope is to receive heartfelt forgiveness from the social cons, his remarks eight years ago aren't just going to go away because the senator claims he's changed his mind. His remarks were aimed at Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, but many evangelicals identify themselves with these two. You slap one of them and a fairly large voting demographic gets a red mark on the face.

McCain's best and probably only hope for winning evangelical voters to his side is based on who his running mate is going to be. Another moderate on the ticket is not going to do it. He needs a very strong and dedicated conservative to come on board with him. Not just a fiscal conservative, but a social con as well.

Without the evangelical vote, Senator McCain has the same shot at the White House as a snow ball has of getting across hell. John McCain, you have your work cut out for you.

Huckabee Concedes

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee has conceded the Republican nomination to rival Senator John McCain, R-Ariz.

But there is no doubt the longshot-turned-contender left his mark on the GOP race.

Calling his White House bid the "journey of a lifetime", Huckabee spoke Tuesday night from Irving, TX commending McCain on an "honorable campaign" and emphasizing his commitment to the Republican party in the fight to the November election. Read more from ABC News

Are You Ready For a McCain and Romney Ticket?

I'm not, that would be totally intolerable.

From Crooks and Liars

If McCain does in fact choose Romney as a running mate I will in fact stay home on Nov 4. McCain's bad enough but I can at least tolerate him. Romney will make the ticket completely indistinguishable from the Democratic side. Romney was a liberal as Governor of Massachusetts, he has done absolutely nothing to convince me that he has really changed. His conservative rhetoric was nothing more than his quest for the white house.

Obama: Sermon on Mount OKs Same-Sex Unions

From NewsMax

I agree with Barack Hussein Obama that gays and lesbians should be treated with respect and dignity. They can transfer property, visit each other in the hospital. That's where it ends though. Marriage however is the union of a man and a woman.

I don't believe that homosexuals would honestly have the best interest of a child in mind in the case of adoptions. I think that they're intent would be more to further advance their agenda than it is to bring up a positive contributing member of society.

I would like to know where the out cry from the left is. A Republican candidate speaking out on Christianity would be slammed into a wall by now. Why isn't the left griping about this? In fact now that I think of it, why isn't the right?

Code pink and their violent mob rule peace demonstration

"Republicans should be in concentration camps".

"I support forced sterilization for Christian fundamentalists".

These people are insane, there's no other way to describe them. They march for peace and violently mob those that disagree with them. Stalin would be impressed with the level of brain washing that's being achieved here. What really scares me is that the radicals of the sixties are the congressional reps and senators of today. These nut cases are destined to be the leaders of tomorrow. This means that if something isn't done to stop them, my children's generation could very well be the last to live with liberties and freedom in this nation.
