Relative beliefs

einstein

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.

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.

By the way, that student was EINSTEIN.

————————————————————————————————————-This story above is going around on Facebook at the moment and well worth sharing. It shows how human thinking originates.

What it doesn’t show is how it all relates to the survival of the species. I belief that all human beliefs are anchored in the survival of the species but recent trends throw over traditional beliefs to step into the unknown,or at least into a sphere that is known in the bible as Sodom and Gomorrah.

But what can be seen is that what tradition thought to be life preserving isn’t necessarily so, as we have created a world that is going to suffer from severe earth warming brought on my humanity that followed traditional beliefs.

It seems hat belief is always as strong as it strongest believers.

Gone to the dogs

I think society has reached a low point in human terms, in that it is today cheaper to buy a tin of human food than it is to buy a tin of dog food. Does that mean that the value of a human is less than that of a dog? Or does it mean that humans should be discouraged from keeping animals.

On the global front we see that we endeavour to allow animals as much freedom as possible to follow their natural instincts and roam around freely but in our society we curb free movement by placing poor persons on a strict diet of monetary shortage so that they cannot afford to travel.

Do nowadays Animal Rights Activists get more say than Human Rights Activists?

There is a relevance to such thoughts in that in times of human nihilism like Ethnic cleansing is like a threat that runs through all types of fascist up-risings, whereby humans are forcibly displaced to make way for the “better race”. See Kosovo, Darfur, Germany in Hitler times, Cambodia. In all those cases, rulers see fit to curb the movements of indigenous or groups of people to fit in with some disciplinary regime.

Yet this human degradation never touches the issue of animal rights, in fact Hitler was a great defender of Animal Rights and Vegetarian, though he easily killed millions of people.

Whilst we condemn Travellers for doing what our natural instincts tell us to do, not far from the animal herding instincts that force animals to travel for food, we condemn humans for doing similar things.  Of course we have a well established network of food and water supply.  (Not far from the Roman viaduct system), We displace humans from their natural environments to fit in with the given world-wide discipline, whilst we feel animals have to enjoy the freedom to roam. Are we trying to transcend our own sub-conscious desires into the animal word, the deep embedded instinct of feeling free.

Whilst we usually think that whatever is the most expensive is the best, should we now start to eat dog food and leave our cheap human foods to the animals instead?

I think whoever are the people who are in charge of governmental decisions worldwide should take into consideration that our culture is a fragile thing that can break one day, just like the Roman culture broke one day, unable to continue because its leaders were crazed by drinking water from lead pipes. Today’s general poison is drugs, though we make sure all food and water supplies are strictly up to standards. We see a social interactions of drug takers with people in the highest positions and that is something that is of concern today. That might imply that some decisions that are made might be detrimental in the long run and do damage to our culture, but we won’t be able to stop ourselves now and will never be able to reflect on our decisions until we allow ourselves to step back and become fair again.
