Does God Exist?

Does God Exist?

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed.As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and various subjects.When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said:”I don’t believe that God exists.”
“Why do you say that?” asked the customer. “Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn’t exist. Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children?
If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain.I can’t imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things.”The customer thought for a moment, but didn’t respond because he didn’t want to start an argument.The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop.
Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long,stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and unkempt.

The customer turned back and entered the barbershop again and he said to the barber:”You know what? Barbers do not exist.”

“How can you say that?” asked the surprised barber.”I am here, and I am a barber. And I just worked on you!”

“No!” the customer exclaimed. “Barbers don’t exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside.”
“Ah, but barbers DO exist! That’s what happens when people do not come to me.”

“Exactly!” affirmed the customer. “That’s the point! God, too, DOES exist! That’s what happens when people do not go to Him and don’t look to Him for help.That’s why there’s so much pain and suffering in the world.”

    Stories like this are just too simple to be of any use.

    Suffering, and my bad haircut, would exist if there was a God and they’d exist if there wasn’t a God.

    To claim that suffering exists because people don’t believe in gods? You do realize that you don’t believe in 99.998% of all the gods ever invented by humans in our history? People that don’t believe in any gods just go one god further than you do. The disbelief in outlandish claims -of gods, goblins, fairies, unicorns, faith healers, etc- has no magical power that conjures suffering or pain. The vast majority of Atheists are perfectly moral people. Proportionately, they’re consider more moral than most religious people. For example, in the United States Atheists make up anywhere between 20 to 35% of the population depending on how you poll, but only make up 0.2% of the prison population. As an atheist myself, I cannot help but find the claims made in this post divisive, offensive, bigoted and morally abject in the 20th century.

      oops, I meant 21st century. Times flies when you don’t believe the world is going to end soon.

      I Respect your point of view @Tanin, but you are just taking the post other way, The post doesn’t mean that “if u do not believe then u r in trouble”, it just resembles the fact that do not blame god for everything, its just the responsibility, which makes someone a GOD for somebody else just because that “someone” has done some good for that needy..GOD IS WITHIN…

  4. Check this interesting story on God’s Existence between a Science Professor and his students…Loved it

  5. Bible is a historical fact and whoever Archaeological, Historical n Scientific explanation we come out with, God is always part of the Equations because God does not Suspense Nature instate He manipulates Nature !
