Religion is a private thing. It’s up to the people themselves to choose what to believe in and what not to believe in.
It’s also perfectly fine if one person does not believe in anything. Such people exist and it’s their own right to be atheists.
Nevertheless, there are believers and non-believers who try to push their point of view and convince the others in order ‘to choose the right path’. This is very rude and unacceptable in the modern world.
Regarding this issue, there is a fantastic factious story that involves a teacher and her students. The teacher’s intention is to tell her students what to believe in, and Adam’s reaction shuts her up.
The teacher is non-believer and she tries to place her views in front of the students.
“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!”
