A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut
and his beard
As the barber began to work, they began to have a
good conversation.

They talked of many things on numerous subjects.
When they
eventually touched on the
subject of God, the barber said: "I don't believe that
God exists."

"Why do you say that?" asked the customer.

"Well, you just have to go out in the street to
realize that God
doesn't exist. Tell me, if God exists, would there
be so many sick
people?Would there be abandoned children? If God
existed, there
would be neither suffering nor pain. I can't imagine
a loving God
who would allow all of these things."

The customer thought for a moment, but didn't
respond because he
didn't want to start an argument. The barber
finished his job and
the customer left the shop.

Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in
the street with
long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard.He
looked dirty and
unkempt. The customer turned back and entered
the barber shop again
and he said to the barber:

"You know what? Barbers do not exist."

"How can you say that?" asked the surprised
barber. "I am here, and
I am a barber. And I just worked on you!"

"No!" the customer exclaimed. "Barbers don't exist
because if they
did, there would be no people with dirty long hair
and untrimmed
beards, like that man outside."

"Ah, but barbers DO exist! " answered the
barber. " What happens,
is, some people do not come to me. "

"Exactly!" affirmed the customer. "That's the point!
God, too, 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."
