These are the quotes of some famouse people which I felt are rather intriguing, since their mind has been involved in the accomplishment of great and substantial laws and theories in which the realm of engineering, medicine, art, business, humanities, politics etc revolves our world today. I was just wondering, if these people could have said all these words which was recorded in the books of history, do we have a better explanation, argument or means to say, well, I shall live your lives and change the words that you have said.
According to Oxford dictionary, the word “Atheist” means:
1. n. One who denies or disbelieves the existence of a God.
“We don’t know a millionth of one percent about anything. Indeed we still don’t know what 90% of the universe is made of. What is gravity? What are the fundamental particles of matter such as electrons, quarks, protons composed of? What is energy? Why is it a gram of rose petals contains an identical amount of energy as a gram of uranium? We don’t even know how these things work alone why. It certainly therefore takes faith to be an atheist.
I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon the earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how he would look up into the heavens and say there is no God.
An honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle, so many are the conditions which would have to be satisfied to get it going.

This most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets could only proceed from the counsel and domain of an intelligent and powerful Being.

We are in a position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does now know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent being toward God. We see a universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws, but only dimly understand those laws. Our limited minds cannot grasp the mysterious force that moves the constellations.
I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details.

“ Ah!,” a skeptical student questioned, “Is there not too much evil in the world to be a God?”
“But, surely,” said Zacharias, “When you use the term “evil” you are pre-supposing good and if there is objective good then there must be a moral law to reflect this. But when you admit there is a moral law, then you must admit a moral law giver- but then that’s what you are trying to disprove and not prove!
So, if there is no law giver, then there is no good or evil- so what is your meaningless questions?”
-Author and speaker, Ravi Zacharias speaking at a forum on a university campus and recounts the challenge he was given by a student-
This is really a great answer to a question you may be asked or have asked. Did God create everything that exists? Does evil exist? Did God create evil?
A University professor at a well known institution of higher learning challenged his students with this question. "Did God create everything that exists?"
A student bravely replied "Yes, He did".
"God created everything?" the professor asked.
"Yessir, He certainly did," the student replied.
The professor answered, "If God created everything, then God created evil. And since evil exists, and according to the principal that our works define who we are, then we can assume God is evil."
The student became quiet and did not answer the professor's hypothetical definition. The professor,quite pleased with himself, boasted to the students that he had proven once more that the Christian faith was a myth.
Another student raised his hand and said, "May I ask you a question, professor?"
"Of course",replied the professor.
The student stood up and asked, "Professor, does cold exist?"
"What kind of a question is this? Of course it exists.Have you never been cold?" The other students
snickered at the young man's question.
The young man replied, "In fact sir, cold does not exist. According to the laws of physics, what we
consider cold is in reality the absence of heat.Every body, or object, is susceptible to study when
it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body, or matter, have or transmit energy. Hence,absolute zero (-460 F) is the total absence of heat;and all matter becomes inert and incapable of reaction at that temperature. Cold does not exist.We have created this word to describe how we feel if we have no heat.
The student continued,"Professor, does darkness exist?"
The professor responded, "Of course it does."
The student replied, "Once again you are wrong sir, darkness does not exist either.Darkness is in reality the absence of light. Light we can study, but not darkness. In fact we can use Newton's prism to break white light into many colors and study the various wavelengths of each color. You cannot measure darkness. A simple ray of light can break into a world of darkness and illuminate it. How can you know how dark a certain space is? You measure the amount of light present. Isn't this correct? Darkness is a term used by man to describe what happens when there is no light present."
Finally the young man asked the professor, "Sir does evil exist?"
Now uncertain, the professor responded, "Of course, as I have already said, we see it everyday. It is in the daily examples of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil.
To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist, sir,or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is
simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat, or the darkness that comes when there is no light."
The professor sat down.
The young man credited with this answer was none other than Albert Einstein.
