    A University professor at a well-known institution of higher learning
    challenged his students with this question.
    "Did God create everything that exists?"

    A student bravely replied, "Yes he did!"

    "God created everything?" The professor asked.

    "Yes Sir, he certainly did," the student replied.

    The professor answered, "If God created everything, then God created
    evil. And, since evil exists, and according to the principal that our works
    define who we are, then we can assume God is evil."

    The student became quiet and did not answer the professor's
    hypothetical definition.

    The professor, quite pleased with himself, boasted to the students
    that he had proven once more that the Christian faith was a myth.

    Another student raised his hand and said, "May I ask you a question,
    professor?"

    "Of course", replied the professor.

    The student stood up and asked, "Professor, does cold exist?"

    "What kind of question is this? Of course it exists. Have you never
    been cold?"

    The other students snickered at the young man's question.

    The young man replied, "In fact Sir, cold does not exist. According to
    the laws of physics, what we consider cold is in reality the absence of
    heat. Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits
    energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy.
    Absolute zero (-460 F) is the total absence of heat; and all matter becomes
    inert and incapable of reaction at that temperature. Cold does not
    exist. We have created this word to describe how we feel if we have no heat."

    The student continued, "Professor, does darkness exist?"

    The professor responded, "Of course it does."

    The student replied, "Once again you are wrong Sir, darkness does not
    exist either. Darkness is in reality the absence of light. Light we can
    study, but not darkness. In fact, we can use Newton's prism to break white light
    into many colors and study the various wavelengths of each color. You cannot
    measure darkness. A simple ray of light can break into a world of darkness
    and illuminate it How can you know how dark a certain space is? You
    measure the amount of light present. Isn't this correct? Darkness is a term
    used by man to describe what happens when there is no light present."

    Finally the young man asked the professor, "Sir, does evil exist?"

    Now uncertain, the professor responded, "Of course, as I have already
    said. We see it everyday. It is in the daily examples of man's inhumanity to
    man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world.
    These manifestations are nothing else but evil.

    To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist, Sir, or at least it does not
    exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness
    and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God.
    God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does
    not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when
    there is no heat, or the darkness that comes when there is no light."

    The professor sat down.

    The young man's name -- Albert Einstein

    Absolutely, 100% correct. I can tell you that "over here" the bottom line is that evil has infiltrated the population through uneducated people who have blind faith to a religion. If you keep people from being educated and secular, introduce religion from birth and preach "kill the infidel" you get what we have now. The ones who preach that nonsense have only one thing in mind...power and money. Light cannot penitrate the darkness of crude oil which is the source of power and money. Sad but true.


    Awsome post!!!

    I have a past biology teacher that is going to read that the next time that i see her. She was hardcore in her beliefs and this might make her start thinking a little different.
