I really like this Quote! Enjoy!

This has a thought provoking message no matter how
you believe.

"Does evil exist?" The university professor
challenged his students
with this question. "Did God create everything that
A student bravely replied "Yes, he did!"
"God created Everything?", the professor asked.
"Yes sir", the student replied.
The professor answered, "If God created
everything, then God created
evil. Since evil exists, and according the principal
that our works
define who we are, then God is evil".
The student became quiet before such an answer.
The professor was quite pleased with himself and
boasted to the
students that he had proven once more that the
Christian faith was a myth.
Another student raised his hand and said, "Can 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 students snickered at the young man's
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. Everybody 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 degrees F.) is
the total
absence of heat; 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 every day. it is in the daily
example of man's
inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and
everywhere in the world. These manifestations are
nothing else but
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
not like faith, or
love that exists just as does light and heat. 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

About every other day or so we receive one of those "Send-this-to-all-your-friends" e-mails or one of those smarmy little anecdotal stories that's so amazing in its irony or its sense of the coincidentia that it makes the hair on the back of your neck stand on end in appreciation of the fact that the Cosmos really is in Good Hands after all, ad naus. Whenever we get one of these little things, we browse over to our friends at the Urban Legends Reference Pages ( and see what they have to say about it. If there are any reasons whatsoever for thinking that a particular mass-mailed tall-tale is anything other than simple urban legend or Christian propaganda, the folks at Snopes will provide us with more than ample reason to believe that we've stumbled on to an exception in this respect.

Here's what we came up with this time:
Urban Legends
Reference Pages

Malice of Absence

Claim: While a student, Albert Einstein humiliated an atheist professor by using the "Evil is the absence of God" argument on him.

Status: False.

Unfortunately, the only adversarial e-mails that we find to be true tend to be those directly contesting something that we've posted, something that we ourselves failed to thoroughly research. Of course: sometimes you've just got to trust that your sources are competent or you won't get anything done. Besides, our sources have been right on the money, most of the time.

Again, most of the unsolicited little tales sent to us for the purpose of humiliating or converting atheists have turned out to be utter hawgwarsh, as my relatives and associates in the Deep South like to say.

Why is this?

Why do such a large number of religionists appear to be so eager to recruit or humiliate atheists that they use sheer falsehood in their sales pitches for religion?

Furthermore, why would an atheist (or anybody, for that matter) want to join (or even endorse) a group of dishonest people who would practice or encourage such behavior?
