Does evil exist? Did God create evil?

 Evil is the absence of God is a supposedly logical argument that attempts to solve the problem of evil by explaining that "evil" does not exist as a positive, but is simply the lack of God.

The "argument" itself basically follows like this.

Question: Does evil exist?

- Darkness is not a thing, in and of itself. Darkness is simply what we call a lack of light.
- In the same way, cold does not exist. It is simply an area that lacks heat (energy).
- Equally, we can say the same about evil. Evil itself does not exist, it is simply a lack of God.

Watch the video on how Albert Einstein explained the answer.

  2. Good can exist without evil, whereas evil cannot exist without good.

  3. LIGHT VERSUS DARKNESS
    Love is the crowning grace of humanity, the holiest right of the soul, the golden link which binds us to duty and truth, the redeeming principle that chiefly reconciles the heart to life, and is prophetic of eternal good.
    Petrarch
