In the context of the Russian Revolution, the denial of faith and the existence of God, a teacher asked his primary students,
“What are these?”
“Do you see the eyeglasses?”
“Yes, we can see them!”
“You can see the eyeglasses. Therefore they exist! However, do you see God?
At this point, a child said, “We can't see your brain. Hence, your brain does not exist.”
The atheist is unable to be grateful. This is because when he is inundated with blessings and wishes to express gratitude, he does not know whom to thank(6).
The best explanation to an atheist is to present him with a delicious meal and then ask, “Do you believe that there's a cook who prepared this food?”
If it is inevitable that there is a cook behind a meal, is it feasible that this world with all its wondrous laws existed by coincidence?
