Best thing I've read on tumblr.

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, smell 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 theatre 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, were 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 and GOD is FAITH. That is all that keeps things alive and moving.
That student was Albert Einstein.

i know christmas is supposed to be a joyous occasion. usually i love this time of year, but this year….not so much. i dont know if its because im not with my family this year or because of stress. my family did the present opening early because of conflicting vacations and whatnot, but even then i wasnt happy. christmas is about giving not receiving…but i dont think people undertand that. especially my younger cousins. their ungratefulness is nauseating. putting on a fake smile for christmas is getting tiring. i found myself wishing that night would end, but i am grateful that at least i had time to spend with my family. i just wish that i would be able to spend christmas day with my family. </3

Senior Year?

Senior year is definetly not what I expected? I thought my classes and workload would be chill…but they’re not. I feel like it is a continuation of junior year! Except now I don’t even have art where I could catch up on everything :P The teachers also expect a lot from you but they feel like it is okay to be vague with assignments. Its not like seniors suddenly became intellectually gifted overnight and know everything. We are the same juniors from last year just trying to pull off senior year. Oh and on top of that, there are college applications to worry about; letters of recommendation, common app, personal statements, SAT prep, and of course your major (my issues with this and my family are still unresolved). Things would have been a lot easier had I not procrastinated during the summer…Word of advice to all future seniors, do not procrastinate senior summer; GET YOUR SHIT DONE

Conflicted!

Am I supposed to follow my heart or listen to what everyone is telling me to do? I’m currently researching for colleges and one of the major factors is if the school offers my major. I enjoy the subject I wish to pursue…but my family is constantly reminding me to abandon it and pursue a science field. Apparently I am better in science compared to my older sister who is currently majoring in biochemistry. But the thing is science makes me miserable. I took AP Biology last year and it was extremely challenging. I don’t know if it was the rigor, stress, or grades that discouraged me…but the thing is it is not for me. I took cp chemistry sophomore year and it was alright; fairly easy and straight forward. But how can I pursue chemistry if I have not truly experienced a college level class in chemistry? What do I do? I really want to pursue my interests, yet the constant discouragement is offsetting an having me reconsider my major…. HELP, what should I do?
