Why Science Fails to Explain God

Post by Imran on Wed 27 Apr 2016, 12:28 am

Have you ever wondered why science does not recognise the existence of God?

This is a question that is quite difficult to provide a convincing answer, but Alhamdulillah, I found this great story that explains it all and how we should have faith in our religion no matter how artificial phenomenals might describe it.

Please take your time to read it. Jazakallahu Khairan


"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 not always so good."
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
could...
in fact most of us would if we could... but 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 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? "
"Yes, of course sir, I do have five senses".
Then, slowly raising his voice, the professor
continues:
"Have you ever seen your God?"
"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 God...
in 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.
