Atheist Teacher Tries To Outwit Little Girl and Fails Miserably

The thing about faith is that it doesn’t need to be justified or explained. It’s something folks have in something greater than themselves, and no argument is likely to sway most folks from their beliefs. Yet, there are those folks who strive to feel intellectually superior by arguing with people of faith over specific details related to their religions. More often than not, this is not done in an attempt to gain or promote understanding but rather to shame and embarrass the person of faith. However, the teacher in this fictional joke learned very quickly that it’s sometimes better not to pick fights you can’t win.

In an elementary school lesson, one little girl in the class raised her hand and said: “I just learned that Jonah in the bible was swallowed by a whale.”

The teacher explained that it is physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it is a very large mammal, its throat is very small.

The girl did not believe him and replied, “I am almost certain Jonah was swallowed by a whale.”

“I am telling you, it is not possible,” replied the teacher.

The little girl raised her hand again. “My Sunday school teacher told me Jonah was swallowed by a whale and she would not lie to me.”

Frustrated, the teacher replied, “That is a ‘story’ from the bible, it is not factual, and I will not argue with you anymore.”

After a little thought, the girl finally responded, “Well, when I get to heaven, I will ask Jonah myself”.

In an attempt to fluster the little girl, the teacher replied, “What if Jonah didn’t go to heaven?”

The girl quickly responded, “Ok, then YOU ask him.”
