of a university challenged his students with this question. "Did God create
everything that exists?"
A student answered bravely, "Yes, he did".
The professor then asked, "If God created everything, then he created
evil. Since evil exists (as noticed by our own actions), so God is evil. The
student couldn't respond to that statement causing the professor to
conclude that he had "proved" that "belief in God" was a fairy tale, and
Another student raised his hand and asked the professor, "May I pose a
question? " "Of course" answered the professor.
The young student stood up and asked: "Professor does Cold exists?" The
professor answered, "What kind of question is that?...Of course the
cold exists... haven't you ever been cold?"
The young student answered, "In fact sir, Cold does not exist. According
to the laws of Physics, what we consider cold, in fact is the absence of
heat. Anything is able to be studied as long as it transmits energy (heat).
Absolute Zero is the total absence of heat, but cold does not exist. What
we have done is create a term to describe how we feel if we don't have body
heat or we are not hot."
"And, does Dark exist?" he continued. The professor answered "Of course".
This time the student responded, "Again you're wrong, Sir. Darkness does
not exist either. Darkness is in fact simply the absence of light. Light can
be studied, darkness can not. Darkness cannot be broken down. A simple ray
of light tears the darkness and illuminates the surface where the light beam
finishes. Dark is a term that we humans have created to describe what
happens when there's lack of light."
Finally, the student asked the professor, "Sir, does evil exist?" The
professor replied, "Of course it exists, as I mentioned at the beginning,
we see violations, crimes and violence anywhere in the world, and those
things are evil."
The student responded, "Sir, Evil does not exist. Just as in the previous
cases, Evil is a term which man has created to describe the result of
the absence of God's presence in the hearts of man.
After this, the professor bowed down his head, and didn't answer back.
The young man's name was Albert Einstein.
