Personally, I’m not too much about the whole thing about organized religion, but I have some people in their churches who are involved and they enjoy it.
I think we can all agree on this point, no matter what your religion is: what you believe is your business and that of no one else. And if you’re not believing in anything, that’s fine too.
There are however those who want to decide what they should and should not think for others. So nothing is quite as rewarding as seeing such people put in their place.
A teacher tries to tell her students what to think and what to feel in this brilliant fictitious story-but the clever comeback of this kid surely shut her up!
Adam, 6, was listening attentively to his first-grade teacher, Ms. Smith, talking about religion. Ms. Smith was not a christian and did not intend to teach that religion to any of her pupils, regardless of what they were doing.
“Go out in the schoolyard”
To demonstrate that God did not exist, Ms. Smith asked Adam:
“Adam, can you see that tree outside the window?”
“Yes,” the boy replied.
“Adam, can you see the lawn around the tree?”
“Yes,” the boy replied once again.
“Now go out in the schoolyard and look up at the sky,” Ms. Smith told him.
Adam nodded, and walked out in the schoolyard. He looked up at the blue sky for a few moments, then walked back into the classroom.
“Did you see God out there?”
“I saw the sky,” Adam said, happy to have been out in the yard for a few seconds.
“But did you see God up there?” the teacher said in a mocking tone.
“Nope, I didn’t,” Adam answered truthfully.
“Exactly. We can’t see God, because he’s not there. He simply doesn’t exist,” the teacher said with a jeering smile.
“Can you see miss Smith?”
Suddenly, Adam’s classmate Felicia eagerly raised her hand, and the teacher nodded for her to speak.
“Adam, can you see that tree outside the window?” little Felicia asked.
“Yes,” he replied.
“And can you see the lawn around the tree?”
“Yes,” Adam said.
“And did you see the sky out there?”
“Yes!” Adam said, a bit frustrated at all the questions.
“And can you see miss Smith?”
“So according to what we’ve been taught…”
“Yes,” Adam replied, now getting a bit curious.
“And can you see her brain?” little Felicia asked.
“Uhm, no,” Adam replied.
Felicia smiled at miss Smith.
“Okay, so according to what we’ve been taught today, miss Smith doesn’t have a brain!”
