The barber and God

God exists! :: All Pretty Things
I came upon this story recently and it's too beautiful not to share it :)

A man went to a barber one day. While the barber trimmed his hair, they started talking about different ideas. At one point the barber told the man: “I don’t believe God exists!” “How come?!” “Well, if God exists – would there be so many unhappy people in the world? so many sick people? so many pain and suffering? I can’t imagine God exists and lets all this happen”.

When he was done, the man left. Shortly after he met another person, with long, unkempt hair.

The man quickly returned to the barber and told him: “You know what? Barbers don’t exist!” “Huh? How can you say that? You were just in, I trimmed your hair!” “Yes, but if barbers would exist, there would be no unkempt man like the one I just met!” “Well, that doesn’t mean I don’t exist, it’s just that not all men come to me so I can take care of them”.

“Exactly!”, exclaimed the men, “many don’t go to look for God either. That doesn’t mean He doesn’t exist”.


Disclosure: it doesn't prove God exists, it is just a reminder to keep our minds open and not close it due to incorrect reasoning.

  1. I like this story, Alicia. Unfortunately, there will never be the right "proof" for most people. It all comes down to our choice: to believe with our hearts or choose to depend only on our logic :)
