No God or Know God?

An atheist professor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem Science has with God, The Almighty.

He asks one of his new students to stand and.....

Prof: So you believe in God?

Student: Absolutely, sir.

Prof: Is God good?

Student: Sure.

Prof: Is God all-powerful?

Student: Yes.

Prof: 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 is silent.)

Prof: You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, young fellow. Is God good?

Student: Yes.

Prof: Is Satan good ?

Student: No.

Prof: Where does Satan come from?

Student: From...God.. .

Prof: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?

Student: Yes.

Prof: Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything. Correct?

Student: Yes.

Prof: So who created evil?

(Student does not answer. )

Prof: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?

Student: Yes, sir.

Prof: So, who created them?

( Student has no answer.)

Prof: 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.

Prof: Tell us if you have ever heard your God?

Student: No, sir.

Prof: 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.

Prof: Yet you still believe in Him ?

Student: Yes.

Prof: 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.

Prof: Yes. Faith. And that is the problem science has.

Student: Professor, is there such a thing as heat?

Prof: Yes.

Student: And is there such a thing as cold?

Prof: Yes.

Student: No sir. There isn't.

(The lecture theatre becomes 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 is pin-drop silence in the lecture theatre .)

Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?

Prof: 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 were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?

Prof: So what is the point you are making, young man?

Student: Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.

Prof: 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?

Prof: 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 shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is 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 endeavour, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?

(The class is in uproar .)

Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain?

(The class breaks 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 is silent . The professor stares at the student, his face unfathomable. )

Prof: I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.

Student: That is it sir... The link between man & god is FAITH .

That is all that keeps things moving & alive....... .........

Before we met

Before we met,I knew

There was something about you.

Our hearts connected the very same day,
Like Love has found its way.

I didn't know it then, but I do know now,

That we've always been connected somehow.

Like two souls lost in the middle of the night,
have finally found the path to make their hearts right.

And though we maybe far away,
The Love we found is here to stay.

Spiritually my heart always knew,
I would find Love in my life, once that I found you.

Write on me your pain

Write on me your pain

And I'll wash it out in the rain
Write on me your smiles
And I'll treasure them all the while

I can only be as much as you are
If you let me I'll be the sky for your stars

I can only see what you don't hide
If you let me
I'll be your sky

All I want you to do is write on me
I want my every single part
To reflect what's in your heart
All I want you to do

Is write on me

In every single way
Want to know you
More each day

Write on me your thoughts
I'll make sure you know mine
Write on me your feelings
I'll wait if you need more time

I can only be as much as you are

If you let me I'll be the night for your fire
I can only see what you don't hide
If you let me
I'll be your night

All I want you to do is write on me
I want my every single part
To reflect what's in your heart

All I want you to do
Is write on me
In every single way
Want to know you
More each day

Thank God, India's out of Cup

There's a brighter side to India's exit from the World Cup.
Something that can cheer up disappointed fans and angry advertisers. Sri Lanka has done a great favour to Indian economy by ousting the cricket team from the World Cup. There are about 80 million cable and satellite viewing homes in India.
According to TAM ratings, the average viewership of all World Cup matches held till now stands at about 3%, with India vs Bangladesh touching a high of 7.25%. To reach the finals, India would have played at least seven more matches.
Considering a TV Rating of 7.25%, at least 5.8 million people would have watched the match. This would have resulted in a productivity loss of 371.2 million man hours (5.8 million x 8 hours x 8 matches), apart from stress faced by mothers during exams.
About 3% of 81 million TV viewers (2.4 million) were ardent cricket fans and would have sat through all eight hours in the remaining 28 matches. Thus overall, Indian team's ouster would result in a productivity gain of 481 million man hours of work (28x2.4x8 man hours), if put to use.
The Sri Lankans have given a boost to the Indian economy by saving 54,902 man years of work (one year = 8,761 hours). Indians can build seven phases of the Golden Quadrilateral connecting Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai spread over 5,846 kilometres all over again, with this time saved.
A daily wage skilled labourer in Delhi earns Rs 17 per hour. If put to productive use, the 481 million man hours can produce Rs 817 crore of GDP, which is 63% more than BCCI's annual revenues of Rs 500 crore, last year. It's 401% more than the Rs 163 crore losses, corporate India has predicted to incur due India's ouster.
The state electricity boards are also thanking Sri Lanka for the great favour. A TV consumes 45 watts per hour. Assuming a viewer will now switch off his TV by 12 midnight, it will save Rs 135 watts at least per viewer (not considering the electricity consumed by other appliances running simultaneously.)
This will save the electricity boards 324 million watts of electricity ( 3.24 lakh kilowatts) in just 28 days. According to estimates, SEB losses in India will touch Rs 1 lakh crore by 2008.
If disappointed viewers completely switch off their TVs for eight hours, it will save the government at least 8,64,000 kilowatts, along with many more lives รข€” at least three Indian citizens have been reported to die due to cardiac arrest or suicide after India's defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka.

As I sat there in English class,I stared at the girl next to me.She was my so-called 'best friend'.I stared at her long, silky hair,and wished she was mine.But she didn't notice me like that, and I knew it. After class,she walked up to me and asked me forthe notes she had missed the day before.I handed them to her.She said 'thanks' and gave me a kiss on the cheek.I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends,I love her but I'm just too shy,and I don't know why.

11th Grade

The phone rang. On the other end,it was she. She was in tears,mumbling on and on about how herlove had broke her heart.She asked me to come over becauseshe didn't want to be alone, so I did.As I sat next to her on the sofa,I stared at her soft eyes, wishing she was mine. After 2 hours, one Drew Barry more movie,and three bags of chips, she decided to go home.She looked at me, said 'thanks' and gave me a kisson the cheek..I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends,I love her but I'm just too shy,and I don t know why.

Senior year

One fine day she walked to my locker."My date is sick" she said, "he's not gonna go" well, I didn't have a date, and in 7th grade,we made a promise that if neither of us had dates,we would go together just as 'best friends'.So we did. That night, after everything was over,I was standing at her front door step. I stared at her as She smiled at meand stared at me with her crystal eyes.Then she said- "I had the best time, thanks!"and gave me a kiss on the cheek.I want to tell her,I want her to knowthat I don't want to be just friends,I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.


A day passed, then a week, then a month.Before I could blink, it was graduation day.I watched as her perfect body floated like an angelup on stage to get her diploma. I wanted her to be mine-butshe didn't notice me like that, and I knew it.Before everyone went home,she came to me in her smock and hat,and cried as I hugged her.Then she lifted her head from my shoulder and said- 'you're my best friend, thanks' andgave me a kiss on the cheek.I want to tell her, I want her to knowthat I don t want to be just friends,I love her but I'm just too shy,and I don't know why.


Now I sit in the pews of the church.That girl is getting married now.and drive off to her new life,married to another man.I wanted her to be mine,but she didn't see me like that,and I knew it.But before she drove away,she came to me and said 'you came !'. She said 'thanks' and kissed me on the cheek.I want her to know thatI don't want to be just friends,I love her but I'm just too shy,and I don't know why.


Years passed, I looked down at the coffinof a girl who used to be my 'best friend'.At the service, they read a diary entryshe had wrote in her high school years.This is what it read:"I stare at him wishing he was mine; but he doesn't notice me like that,and I know it. I want to tell him,I want him to know thatI don't want to be just friends,I love him but I'm just too shy,and I don't know why.I wish he would tell me he loved me !.........'I wish I did too...'I thought to my self, and I cried.* Do yourself a favour, tell her/him that you love.They won't be there...................Forever…!!!

Men vs. Women

Men vs. Women

What is the difference between men and women?

1. A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.


2. Men wake up as good-looking as when they went to bed. Women somehow deteriorate during the night.


3. A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he wants. A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't want.


4. A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't. A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.


5. There are two times when a man doesn't understand a woman- before and after marriage.


6. A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.


7. To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little. To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.


8. Any married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!


9. A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.


10. Women look at a wedding as the beginning of romance, while men look at a wedding as the ending of romance.
