this isn't to start a religious debate, i just thought some people might find it interesting. If you are atheist don't pay attention the the religious aspect, but to Einstein's wit. If you are Christian, look at the message. If your confused then read and decide whether you like it or not. I think everyone can enjoy this without it being a big religious hooplah.
Edit- It has been brought to my attention this wasn't Einstein, but it's still interesting. Thanks for first top 5 guys

Professor l You are a Christian, aren' t you, son ,
Student l Yes, sir.
Professor: So, you believe in can ,
Student l Absolutely, sir.
Professor: Is can good ,
Student l Sure.
Professor: Is can all powerful ,
Student l Yes.
Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to can to heal
him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOO didnt. How
is this can good then? Hmm?
student was silent.)
Professor: You cant answer, can you , Let' s start again, young fella. Is GOO
Student l Yes.
Professor: Is man good ,
Student l No.
Professor: Where does mun come from ,
Professor: That' s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Student l Yes.
Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’ t it , And can 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, dont they?
Student l Yes, sir.
Professor: So, who created them ,
student had no answer.)
Professor: Science says you have , senses you use to identify and observe the
world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen con?
Student l No, sir.
Professor: Tell us ifyou have ever heard your GOD?
Student l No , sir.
Professor: Have you ever felt your GOD, tasted your GOD, smell your GOD?
Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOO for that matter?
Student l No, sir. I' m afraid I havent.
Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?
Student l Yes.
Professor :According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, science
says your GOO doesn' t exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student l Nothing. I only have my huh.
Professor: Yes, faith. And that is the problem Science has.
Student l Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
Professor: Yes.
Student :And is there such a thing as cold?
Professor: Yes.
Student l No, sir. There tset.
The lecture theatre became very quiet with this turn of events.)
Student l Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat,
white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we dont have anything called cold. We
can hit 495 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we cant go any further
after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to
describe the absence oftest. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is
not the opposite of heat, sir, iust the absence of it.
There was silence in the lecture theater.)
Student l What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Professor: Yes. What is night inthere isn’ t darkness?
Student l You’ re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence orsomething. You
can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light. But ifyou have no
light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn’ t it? In reality,
darkness tset. If it is, were you would be able to make darkness darker,
wouldnt you?
Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man ,
Student l Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.
Professy . Flawed , can you explain how?
Student l Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life
and then there is death, a good can and a bad GOO. You are viewing the
concept of GOO as something tbbte, something we can measure. Sir, Science
cant 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.
Student: Death is not the opposite of life: iust 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 l 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 l since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and
cannot even prove that this process is an ongoing 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 Professors brain?
The class broke out into laughter. )
Student l Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professors 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
Professor: I guess youll have to take them on him, son.
Student l That is it sir ... Exactly !The link between man & GOO is FAITH. That
is all that keeps things alive and moving.
P. S. that student was EINSTEIN.

Einstein never said anything like this. And the arguments are flawed. If you want me to extrapolate, reply.

ah. So God is like cold... a term used to describe a nonexistent thing.
#311 - philythemaster (01/09/2012) [+] (7 replies)
The claim that cold "doesn't exist" because according to the laws of physics it's merely "the absence of heat" amounts to semantic game-playing. Heat is a noun, the name of a physical phenomenon. Cold is an adjective, a description. To say that something is cold, or that we feel cold, or even that we're going out in "the cold," is not to assert that cold "exists." It's simply a way of describing the relative temperature of things.

The same applies to light (in this context a noun), and dark (an adjective). It's true that when we say, "It's dark outside," the phenomenon we're actually describing is a relative absence of light, but that doesn't mean that by speaking of "the dark" we mistake it for a thing that "exists." We're simply describing the degree of illumination we perceive.

So it's a philosophical parlor trick to posit heat and cold (or light and dark) as a pair of opposite entities only to "reveal" that the second term doesn't really refer to an entity at all, but merely the absence of the first.

The young Einstein would have known better, and so would his professor.

Even if we allow those false dichotomies to stand, the argument would still founder on the conclusion that evil "doesn't exist" because, we're told, evil is simply a term we use to describe "the absence of God's presence in our hearts."

It doesn't follow. The case, such as it is, has been built on the unpacking of purported opposites — heat vs. cold, light vs. dark. But what's the opposite of evil? Good. To keep the argument consistent, the conclusion therefore ought to be: evil doesn't exist because it's only a term we use to describe the absence of good.

You may argue that good is the presence of God in men's hearts, but in that case you'd be assuming what you originally set out to prove: that God exists in the first place.

This a retarded version of Augustine's argument.

TL; DR: It's wrong, Einstein was fighting Abraham Lincoln during the time of the argument.

In fact:
1) Cold is when heat is absorbed faster than emitted
2) Darkness is the absence of light - We are just naming a situation like we named DAY and NIGHT. That doesn't mean there is no darkness.
3) Electricity and magnetism CAN be seen. Eg. Tesla coils and magnetic tomography
4) Death is the absence of life; again a situation in which we can be in
5) Darwinian evolution IS proved through speciments like fossilised skeletons
6) The professor's brain CAN infact be seen smelled and touched, if we operate on his body and open his skull

Just saying...

Evolution is testable. There IS evidence of it, while we may not be able to see it occur, it is still there. If you look at an old photograph, and there is a moving train in the picture, you will see the image is blurred. We have close to solid proof that there was a train there, and the train is obviously blurred. That's the way scientist view evolution. We can't a solid picture of it, it moves by too fast to see it clearly (fast compared to the amount of time the universe has existed). Evolution is not founded and structured by faith, but by science. The professor in this story could have gone to get a cat-scan of his brain. That would be proof. There IS no proof of God. I'm a Christian myself, I may sound atheist, but I've got my own set of beliefs. The students argument is invalid. Everything he said was incorrect. Arguments like these are what trip people up. A clever person comes along, and convinces others of the false. THAT is what is keeping people ignorant of science.

P.S. Just so u all know Einstein never said this, google "einstein humiliates atheist" and the first link shows this encounter was not einstein. Even though he never came out flat and said it Einstein was atheist himself.
#1409 - spidahridah (01/09/2012) [+] (1 reply)
That is an insult towards Einstein. That student was nothing but a sayer of empty words.
Besides, I doubt any professor would say cold or darkness exists as matter.

I'm not even going to bother explaining how wrong that is.
A) Not Einstein, that's ********
B) That logic is about as good as you'd get from a retarded monkey
C) Really? Just... Really?

Einstein was agnostic. He accepted the possibility of god but didn't not view it as probable. He certainly wasn't christian either, he was raised Jewish.

Look, a religious post.

Lets put 20 seconds on the clock, and see how many butthurt comments people make.
