Did God Create Evil?

This is an interesting dialog I came across today. I am not sure of the source but we all know who this genius is.

One day, a professor of a university decided to defy his pupils.

He asked: “Did God created everything that exists?”
A student answered bravely: “Yes, He did”
“….everything?” asked the teacher
“Yes! Everything” Was the answer of the student
“In this case, God also created evil, correct? Because evil exists.” Said the teacher

The student had no answer and remained in silence…..

The teacher was delighted at the opportunity to prove one more time that God was only a myth.

Suddenly, another student raised his hands and asked: “May I ask you a question, professor?”
“Of course you may”, replied the professor
“Does cold exist? – Student
“Of course” answered the professor, “Did you never feel cold?”

“Actually, sir, cold does not exist. According to studies in physics, cold is the total and complete absence of heat. An object can only be studied if it has and transmits energy and it is the heat of an object that transmits its energy. Without heat, the objects are inert, incapable to react. But cold does not exist. We created the term cold to explain the lack of heat.”

“And darkness?” continued the student.
“It exists” replied the professor

“Again, you’re wrong sir; darkness is the total absence of light. You can study light and brightness, but not darkness. The prism of Nichols shows the variety of different colors in which the light can be decomposed according to the longitude of the waves. Darkness is the term we created to explain the total absence of light”

And finally, the student asked “And evil, sir does evil exists. God did not create evil. Evil is the absence of God.

Now it was the professor’s turn to remain silent….

Well if you are wondering who the student was, he is none other than Albert Einstein, what a great thinker was he. My Hero

Evil does exist. Just as Good exists. Both exist in every mortal, only, the proportions vary vastly.

Again, its not as if mortals go through their life at the same "good-to-evil proportions", from cradle to grave. People who are considered exceptionally good have had weak moments in which they have been evil and vice-versa!

Unless there is Evil, we would all forget God!
