Albert Einstein story does evil exist?

Albert Einstein story does evil exist? the student Einstein and his professor

 

Germany, early years of the Twentieth Century

 

During a conference held for university students, an atheist professor of the University Of Berlin threw a challenge to his students with the following question:

 

“Did God create everything that exists?”

 

A student diligently answers: “Yes, of course!”.

 

”And so God created really everything?” Replied the professor.

 

“Sure!” replied the student …

 

The professor replied: “If God created everything, then God created evil, because evil exists, and, as per the principle that states that we are what we produce, then God is Evil”.

 

The students went quiet at his assertion. The professor, rather pleased with himself, reiterated to the students that, once again, he had proved that the mystical faith was a just a myth.

 

Another student raised his hand and said: “May I ask you a question, professor?”.

 

“Naturally!” – Answered the professor

 

The student stood up and said: “Professor, does cold exist?”.

 

“What kind of question is this? Naturally it exists! Have you ever felt cold??. The students chuckled at the student’s question.

 

The youngster replied: “Actually, sir, cold does not exist. As per the laws of physics, what we consider cold is in reality the absence of heat. Every body and object can only be studied when it possesses or transmits energy, and warmth is exactly the manifestation of a body when it has or transmits energy. Absolute zero (-273 °C) is the total absence of heat; all matter becomes inert and incapable of any reaction at that temperature. Cold, therefore, does not exist. We created this word to describe how we feel … when we have no warmth”.

 

The student continued: “Professor, does obscurity exist?”.

 

The professor replied: “Naturally!”.

 

The student replied: “Once again, sir, you are mistaken, even obscurity does not exist. Obscurity is the absence of light. We can study the light, but not obscurity. In fact, we can use Newton’s prism to break down white light into many colors and study the various wave lengths of each color. But we can not measure obscurity. A simple ray of light can enter a dark room and illuminate it. But how can we know how dark is that room?

 

We measure the quantity of light present. Correct? Obscurity is a word given by mankind to describe what happens when light … is not present”.

 

Finally, the young man asked the professor: “Sir, does evil exist?”.

 

At this point, the professor, hesitantly, answered, “Naturally, as I explained. We see it every day. It’s manifested in the cruelty among men every day. It resides in the multitude of crimes and violent acts that happen everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing but evil”.

 

At this point the student answered “Evil does not exist, sir, or at least it does not exist as such. Evil is simply the absence of God. It’s just like obscurity or the cold, it’s a word that man created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the consequence of man not having the love of God present inside their heart. It’s just like the cold manifesting when there is no heat, or the obscurity when there is no light”.

 

The young man received applauses from all students who stood up, and the professor, shaking his head, remained silent.

 

The rector of the University walked toward the young student and asked him: “What is your name?”

 

“My name is Albert Einstein, sir!”. Replied the young man.
