The Atheist ProfessorA college student was in a philosophy class, which had a discussion about God's existence. The professor presented the following logic:
"Has anyone in this class ever heard God?" Nobody spoke.
"Has anyone in this class ever touched God?" Again, nobody spoke.
"Has anyone in this class ever seen God?"
When, for the third time, nobody answered, he declared to the class, "Then there is no God."
One student thought about this for a minute and then raised his hand to ask a question. The teacher called on him, and he stood and asked his classmates:
"Has anyone in this class heard our professor's brain?" Silence.
"Has anyone in this class ever touched the professor's brain?" Absolute silence.
"Has anyone in this class ever seen the professor's brain?"
The class remained silent. After a few moments, the student announced to everyone, "Then according to the professor's own logic, it must be true that he has no brain."
