Prager U: If Good and Evil Exist, God Exists


I’ve had versions of the following conversation with college students more than once, and it always makes me chuckle.  

After seeing a student frantically rummaging through a (worthless, overpriced) textbook, I approach the student and ask what’s on tap for the day. The student responds, “I have an ethics test today.”

Isn’t every day in one’s life an ethics test?

Or perhaps, is it something “higher”?
