God doesn't exist.....?

Ini cerita yang banyak beredar di e-mail, saya tampilkan disini karena cukup mencerahkan.
A man went to a barbershop to have his haircut and his beard trimmed. As the barber began to to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked so many things and various subjects. When eventually they 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, why would there be so many sick people?" If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can't imagine a loving God 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 untrimmed beard. He looked and unkempt. The customer went back to the barbershop 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," Look outside. Barbers don't exist because of that man outside"
"Ah, barbers do exist! That's what happen when people do not come to me." "Exactly! affirmed the customer. "That's the point! God, too does exist! That's what happens when people do not go to Him and don't look to Him for help. That's why there are so much pain and suffering in the world."
