    Current mood: calm

    Does God really exists

    A man went to a barber shop to have his hair and his beard cut as always.
    He started to have a good conversation with the barber who attended to him.
    They talked about many things and various subjects. Suddenly, they touched
    on the subject of God.

    The barber said: "Look man, I don't believe that God exists as you say so."

    "Why do you say that?" - asked the client.

    "Well, it's so easy, you just have to go out in the street to realize that
    God does not exist. Oh, tell me, if God existed, would there be so many
    sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would
    be no suffering nor pain. I can't think of a God who permits all of these
    things."

    The client stopped for a moment thinking but he didn't want to respond so
    as to prevent an argument. The barber finished his job and the client went
    out of the shop. Just then he saw a man in the street with long hair and
    beard (it seems that it had been a long time since he had his cut and he
    looked so untidy).

    Then the client again entered the barber shop and he said to the barber:
    "You know what? Barbers do not exist."

    "How come they don't exist?"-asked the barber. "Well I am here and I am a
    barber."
    "No!" - the client exclaimed. "They don't exist because if they did there
    would be no people with long hair and beard like that man who walks in the
    street."

    "Ah, barbers do exist, what happens is that people do not come to me."

    "Exactly!"- affirmed the client. "That's the point. God does exist, what
    happens is people don't go to Him and do not look for Him that's why
    there's so much pain and suffering in the world."

And the fact that there is sin in the world brings suffering.
