Smile What are your views?

Today, my best friend told me a story about why can’t some people feel God’s existence,I thought it was meaningful.First,please let me share it with you for this question ,and then piease rely to your views?
One day,a man went to a barber shop for a haircut. During the haircut, he had a cheerful chat with the barber.
Later, they came up with the topic of whether God exists.
The barber said, “I don’t believe there’s God in the world.”
The man asked, “Why?”
The barber said, “It’s simple. As long as you take a walk on the street, you’ll know there’s no God. Tell me, if there is God, why are there so many people getting sick and so many orphans losing their parents? If there is God, there will be no sufferings and disasters in the world. The loving God will not allow these things to happen.”
The man was quite sure of the real existence of God in his heart, but I didn’t argue with the barber. God’s existence needn’t to be disputed, for it’s an indisputable fact.
He stayed clam through the haircut, and after that, he left that shop.
On the street, the man saw a man with shoulder-length hair and stubbly cheeks. Then, he went back to the barbershop and said to the barber, “I find barbers don’t exist.”
The barber, upon hearing his word, cried with a loud voice, “What nonsense you’re talking about! I am a barber. I am here! I gave you a haircut just now. Why did you forget it so quickly?”
The custom said in a calm tone, “There are no barbers in the world, because if there’re, on the street there will be men who wear long hair and long stubble.”
The barber said, “Totally unreasonable! There’re barbers of course. The problem is that man doesn’t come to me to get his hair cut.”
He continued,"You are absolutely right in saying that!"
The man continued in a approving voice,"This is where the problem lies.God exists indeed.Only man doesnot seek Him.So,in the world there are so many sufferings and disasters,"
Man feels that God doesnot exists,because they never try to find God or understand God ,and their heart never accepts God.This is why they can’t feel God’s existence. So if one wants to understand God, he has to take it upon himself to seek God, draw near to God with his heart and honesty, and carefully experience the people, occurrences, and things God arranges for you every day.

Yeah, the internet needs more discussions about the existence of god.
A smell of petroleum prevails throughout.

I think good exists. It all depends on your perspective.
At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed.

I'd rather unban Dirty than have another religion thread.

Since when does long hairs and stubble mean you don't go to a barber? Do they exclusively deal with short haired styles only?
I don't got a god complex, you got a simple god...

I tried contacting God, but I just kept hearing my phone ring.
