A Good Story: GOD vs Science

Image

 

 

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.

My Testimony

 

How does it feel to have everything right at your fingertips that even before you ask for anything it would already be laid ahead of you and just pick it up with easiness?

Although it seemed unanticipated and too late for him to change, Roland Lee decided to make new of his life as he has given himself up to one and only God, the one he has believed to have transformed him into a new creation.

A 18-year-old lad and is currently studying at Adamson University taking up Bachelor of Science in Geology.

He has four siblings and the fourth and only son of the family, thus, his father expected him to be a model of virtue and accomplish the things he wants for his only son that someday he will be a great one and likewise be better to what he had done and gone through in his life to be successive enough just to bestow his family a good living.

“For all of my life, I have done nothing but to indulge endlessly the easy-earned money coming from my parents, as they work hardly just to send me in a private school, instead I’ve been such a stubborn child and never thought of appraising those tough works,” said Roland.

Roland came from a known and influential family in Cauayan, Isabela. Both his parents were known of their social status. His mother was a businesswoman, while his father was a political adviser, thus, they got a very good living from it.

“Instead of focusing on my study and make my parents appreciate it, I engaged myself to a cluster of delinquent and troublesome juveniles, who also came from a rich family,” explained Roland.

“Our group always creates a trouble and mess in our town as we make fights with other youths there,” testified Roland.

“We also bully our pitiful fight less co-youths or classmates and as a matter of fact, we rest back and support each other if one of us wants to avenge to someone who has a great fault in him,” he further expound.

According to him, he was an obsolete youngster and a child when he was in high school that he was used not to follow what his parents always say to him. In every time her mother declines to give him money then he would just sneak the money out of her drawer when his opportunity comes.

He said that the money he stole is the one he will contribute to his friends in using to buy their small party-related gathering.

Moreover, aside from his party-wild attitude, he also engaged himself in wrong different relationships as if making a sudden change of his just new-worn clothes when he tends to crave for another brand new wardrobes as to satisfy his self.

Furthermore, he grinned and shared unexpectedly that he had had 39 girlfriends but only three of them he has taken and adored gravely. He also said while chuckling that they were all beautiful girls and daughters of some prominent politicians and rich families in their town.

Right after he graduated from high school in Isabela, he went to Manila to study in college, only then that it was out of the blue when his sister invited him to their church and something impulsive occurred to him.

Based on his experience, he said that it was just nothing to him at the first place, but as the time passes by, the presence of God slowly pierce deep within him, that upon his regular attendance in the Doulos for Christ Church he came to realize a lot of things that changed and integrated his whole life as a new creation.

Because of this, he then starts his life with new hope, courage and optimism that almost leads him to something unexpected and that his family and every related people around him make quest of it as they keep on saying: What and why on earth he seemed so different that he was almost not exactly who he was before. This seemed to his parent that he was surely not the person they have known previously, and that always makes them touched their hands on his forehead to check whether or not he has a fever, but to their surprise he’s not sick, and Roland knew it was kind of conspicuous that they were just teasing him.

Only then, everything has been cryptic to his family and to his former friends that he no sooner went with them and not making any troubles anymore that it has been in result a great relief to them every time he’s going to take a vacation in their province.

In great surprise of his elder sisters, he then spontaneously shows them a lot of unbelievable things on what it takes to be a good son and brother as he evidently study very hard and then getting high grades that likewise make his family appreciate it well enough.

Everything appeared to have been distinct from then on that his family has had no longer times to be used of this incredulous stuff about their son.

Besides, for almost one year and four months of being a Christian, he right away manifested that he will never leave what he has already invested in his life through God’s presence and aid.

Additionally, he then shared his favorite verse from the Bible which is 1 Timothy 4:12 and stated it: “Do not look down on you because you are young but set an example to the believers in speech, in love, in faith and in purity.”

According to him, he was inspired by this verse because it compels him to be able to influence and change the lives of other people regardless of his age and aptitudes.

“In being Christian is not enough, I need to disciple people, and be an example to them as a great leader and lead them to the path that the Lord design for them, and insert them into the vision of God in their minds so that this nation will transform through their lives,” Roland further supplemented.

All of these newly odds in his life has vindicated that his life is worth living for and that he can do something desperate to his co-fellows towards the purpose and the will of God for their lives.

Roland Lee then engaged his entire strength and supremacy of the Church and solemnly serves his God as his disciples and leads people to the path towards the Almighty God.
