Does Evil Exist?

A university professor 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," the student replied.
The professor answered, "If God created everything, then God created evil, since evil exists. And according to 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 faith in God is 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 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. Everybody or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits 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. We can study light, but not darkness. In fact, we can use Newton's prism to break white light into many colors and study the various wave lengths 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 example 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 work that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not created evil. Evil is not like faith, or love, that exist 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 student's name was -- Albert Einstein

Yes I! A similar situation has happened with my professor about a year ago.. He was teaching on Geography and stated (as fact) that the center of the earth was some 1 million degrees (or some extremely high temp). I raised my hand and asked if anyone had ever been to the core of the earth or was this an estimation/educated guess? The Professor then did admit to the class that the deepest any human has gone into the earth is only a couple miles and that they hadn't come close. Hmmm... INI have GOT to question these things.
Give thanks RASTAFARI

There are so many things that babylon system deal with based on their misconceptions.

They just assume something is a certain way, and they cause many problems because of this, because people believe that their assumptions are true.

And no matter how many times they come back and say, "Oops, I guess it wasn't the way we thought, but it is actually a different way", people still believe them when they come with their next assumption.

I look to I own mind and to Jah inspiration when I hear what they say. If it doesn't make sense to I, then I don't regard it. Many times when they finally realize the truth, it is the same truth that people originally thought, until these scientists spoke without Iverstanding.

On this site there is a interview with HIM and Orian Fellaci. She ask HIM about death.......
I see death the way Einstein see evil. It is just the absence of Jah spirit in flesh. Note that in Genesis when Adam was cast out the garden Jah say to Adam that he would die and that Jah spirit would not strive with his flesh forever.
Really, flesh is not alive at any time, it is the spirit of Jah that live through the flesh, which is just a shell. It has no life of its own. That is a big thing in the world today INI come against is the teaching of physical life and death. Misconceptions.

I feel that death is when the soul leaves the body, i also feel this is the same when people are not free. I know there is no life in the body when a person stops taking the essence of breath, of life, which is the universal energy(JAH).If you do not breath ,the body dies not the energy.
Death also to me happens when a person takes in the engergy but does not respect it.But that is a different death.I do not believe that one person is Evil i think that people have to learn it,maybe people are born mean, but to me thats not the samething.

That's very good. The world needs to hear more of this kind of thinking, because enmity is based on the assumption that people are evil.
As we practice love and compassion people will see how we live and they will follow, but it is hard to expect someone surrounded by evil practices to learn a good lifestyle.
Definitely I love the I teachings about the soul and so on. We have to spread these messages more and more. One.

Haile I Blessings,

This is true intelligence. This is the material that they took out of schools. They talk about brilliant minds but these same people all say that God is the source of there wisdom.

Many people don't ovastand how destiny and free will can exist together. I believe that there is really only one choice and that choice is to be either with or against God. I believe that is as far as free will goes, there is no evil only detatchment from the creator which is imperfection. But in this same theory there is no good only GOD who is perfect in every way, all the time, no matter what. Once the Idren decide to connect to the One, everything in life is perfect. Fear is the only enimy.
