    Pls. take time to read the following lengthy but beautiful argument
    > frowarded to me by a muslim brother!
    > Why Science fails to explain God.
    > "Professing to be wise, they became fools . . .. "
    > "LET ME EXPLAIN THE problem science has with God."
    > The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one
    > of his new students to stand.
    > "You're a Muslim, aren't you, son?"
    > "Yes, sir."
    > "So you believe in God?"
    > "Absolutely."
    > "Is God good?"
    > "Sure! God's good."
    > "Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?"
    > "Yes."
    > "Are you good or evil?"
    > "The Koran says I'm evil."
    > The professor grins knowingly. "Ahh! THE KORAN!" He considers for a moment.
    > "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 them? "Would you try?"
    > "Yes sir, I would."
    > "So you're good...!"
    > "I wouldn't say that."
    > "Why not say that? You would help a sick and maimed person if you
    > fact most of us would if we could... God doesn't.
    > [No answer.]
    > "He doesn't, does he? My brother was a Muslim who died of cancer even
    > though he prayed to God to heal him. How is this God good? Hmmm? Can you
    > answer that one?"
    > [No answer]
    > The elderly man is sympathetic. "No, you can't, can you?" He takes a sip of
    > water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax. In
    > philosophy, you have to go easy with the new ones.
    > "Let's start again, young fella." "Is God good?"
    > "Er... Yes."
    > "Is Satan good?"
    > "No."
    > "Where does Satan come from?" The student falters.
    > "From... God..."
    > "That's right. God made Satan, didn't he?" The elderly man runs his bony
    > fingers through his thinning hair and turns to the smirking, student
    > audience. "I think we're going to have a lot of fun this semester, ladies
    > and gentlemen." He turns back to the Muslim. "Tell me, son. Is there evil
    > in this world?"
    > "Yes, sir."
    > "Evil's everywhere, isn't it? Did God make everything?"
    > "Yes."
    > "Who created evil?
    > [No answer]
    > "Is there sickness in this world? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness?
    > All the terrible things - do they exist in this world?"
    > The student squirms on his feet. "Yes."
    > "Who created them? "
    > [No answer]
    > The professor suddenly shouts at his student. "WHO CREATED THEM? TELL ME,
    > PLEASE!" The professor closes in for the kill and climbs into the Muslim's
    > face. In a still small voice: "God created all evil, didn't He, son?"
    > [No answer]
    > The student tries to hold the steady, experienced gaze and fails. Suddenly
    > the lecturer breaks away to pace the front of the classroom like an aging
    > panther. The class is mesmerized.
    > "Tell me," he continues, "How is it that this God is good if He created all
    > evil throughout all time?" The professor swishes his arms around to
    > encompass the wickedness of the world. "All the hatred, the brutality, all
    > the pain, all the torture, all the death and ugliness and all the suffering
    > created by this good God is all over the world, isn't it, young man?"
    > [No answer]
    > "Don't you see it all over the place? Huh?"
    > Pause.
    > "Don't you?" The professor leans into the student's face again and
    > whispers, "Is God good?"
    > [No answer]
    > "Do you believe in God, son?"
    > The student's voice betrays him and cracks. "Yes, professor. I do."
    > The old man shakes his head sadly. "Science says you have five senses you
    > use to identify and observe the world around you. Have you? "
    > "No, sir. I've never seen Him."
    > "Then tell us if you've ever heard your God?"
    > "No, sir. I have not."
    > "Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God or smelt your fact,
    > do you have any sensory perception of your God whatsoever?"
    > [No answer]
    > "Answer me, please."
    > "No, sir, I'm afraid I haven't."
    > "You're AFRAID... you haven't?"
    > "No, sir."
    > "Yet you still believe in him?"
    > "...yes..."
    > "That takes FAITH!" The professor smiles sagely at the underling.
    > "According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable
    > protocol, science says your God doesn't exist. What do you say to that,
    > son? Where is your God now?"
    > [The student doesn't answer]
    > "Sit down, please."
    > The Muslim sits...Defeated.
    > Another Muslim raises his hand.
    > "Professor, may I address the class?"
    > The professor turns and smiles. "Ah, another Muslim in the vanguard! Come,
    > come, young man. Speak some proper wisdom to the gathering."
    > The Muslim looks around the room. "Some interesting points you are making,
    > sir. Now I've got a question for you. Is there such thing as heat?"
    > "Yes," the professor replies. "There's heat."
    > "Is there such a thing as cold?"
    > "Yes, son, there's cold too."
    > "No, sir, there isn't."
    > The professor's grin freezes. The room suddenly goes very cold. The second
    > Muslim continues. "You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat,
    > 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, otherwise
    > we would be able to go colder than 458 - 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. A pin drops somewhere in the classroom.
    > "Is there such a thing as darkness, professor?"
    > "That's a dumb question, son. What is night if it isn't darkness?
    > What are you getting at...?"
    > "So you say there is such a thing as darkness?"
    > "Yes..."
    > "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 and give me a jar of it. Can you...give me a jar of darker darkness,
    > professor?"
    > Despite himself, the professor smiles at the young effrontery before him.
    > This will indeed be a good semester. "Would you mind telling us what your
    > point is, young man?"
    > "Yes, professor. My point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to start
    > with and so your conclusion must be in error...."
    > The professor goes toxic. "Flawed...? How dare you...!""
    > "Sir, may I explain what I mean?"
    > The class is all ears.
    > "Explain... oh, explain..." The professor makes an admirable effort to
    > regain control. Suddenly he is affability itself. He waves his hand to
    > silence the class, for the student to continue.
    > "You are working on the premise of duality," the Muslim explains.
    > "That for example 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 cannot even explain a thought. It uses
    > electricity and magnetism but has never seen, much less fully understood
    > them. 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, merely the absence of it."
    > The young man holds up a newspaper he takes from the desk of a neighbor who
    > has been reading it. "Here is one of the most disgusting tabloids this
    > country hosts, professor. Is there such a thing as immorality?"
    > "Of course there is, now look..."
    > "Wrong again, sir. You see, immorality is merely the absence of morality.
    > Is there such thing as injustice? No. Injustice is the absence of justice.
    > Is there such a thing as evil?" The Muslim pauses. "Isn't evil the absence
    > of good?"
    > The professor's face has turned an alarming color. He is so angry he is
    > temporarily speechless.
    > The Muslim continues. "If there is evil in the world, professor, and we all
    > agree there is, then God, if he exists, must be accomplishing a work
    > through the agency of evil. What is that work, God is accomplishing? The
    > Bible tells us it is to see if each one of us will, of our own free will,
    > choose good over evil."
    > The professor bridles. "As a philosophical scientist, I don't vie this
    > matter as having anything to do with any choice; as a realist, I
    > absolutely do not recognize the concept of God or any other theological
    > factor as being part of the world equation because God is not observable."

    > "I would have thought that the absence of God's moral code in this world is
    > probably one of the most observable phenomena going," the Muslim replies.
    > "Newspapers make billions of dollars reporting it every week! 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 makes a sucking sound with his teeth and gives his student a
    > silent, stony stare.
    > "Professor. 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 now not a scientist, but a priest?"
    > "I'll overlook your impudence in the light of our philosophical discussion.
    > Now, have you quite finished?" the professor hisses.
    > "So you don't accept God's moral code to do what is righteous?"
    > "I believe in what is - that's science!"
    > "Ahh! SCIENCE!" the student's face splits into a grin.
    > "Sir, you rightly state that science is the study of observed phenomena.
    > Science too is a premise which is flawed..."
    > SCIENCE IS FLAWED..?" the professor splutters.
    > The class is in uproar.
    > The Muslim remains standing until the commotion has subsided.
    > "To continue the point you were making earlier to the other student, may I
    > give you an example of what I mean?"
    > The professor wisely keeps silent.
    > The Muslim looks around the room. "Is there anyone in the class who has
    > ever seen the professor's brain?".
    > The class breaks out in laughter.
    > The Muslim points towards his elderly, crumbling tutor. "Is there anyone
    > here who has ever heard the professor's brain... felt the professor's
    > brain, touched or smelt the professor's brain?".
    > No one appears to have done so.
    > The Muslim shakes his head sadly. "It appears no-one here has had any
    > sensory perception of the professor's brain whatsoever.
    > Well, according to the rules of empirical, stable,demonstrable protocol,
    > science, I DECLARE that the professor has no brain."
    > The class is in chaos.
    > The Muslim sits... Because that is what a chair is
    > for.
