Was Evil Created by God...?
Challenged with this university question,
One researched Truth's 'whole confession.'
How many, to such a question, might dare say yes;
If God created evil then He is evil, one might guess.
But, then, one student did profoundly asked:
"Tell me professor, does cold exist to last...?"
The professor replied, "Of course it exists."
What was this brassy student's logic, or gist?
Amazingly, the bold student retorted, "That's not true."
"With laws of physics, cold is the absence of heat (for you)."
All can succumb to a proven study, as energy will transmit.
Cold does not exist; the word only describes how we feel, to fit.
The calm student continued, "Sir, does darkness exist?"
The confident professor retorted, "Of course it does."
The student replied, "Again, Sir, that's not right;
Darkness is actually the absence of the Light."
Newton 's prism is used to break light into colours of aura.
Wavelengths cannot measure an unilluminated area.
The light's ray can break a world of darkness, illuminating it.
Darkness is termed to describe the absence of light, present.
Finally the youth asked, "Sir, does evil exist?"
A bit unsure the man said, "Of course (not wanting to resist)."
At last the youth replied, "Evil does not exist Sir (neath God's rod)."
Evil does not exist 'unto itself,' it is simply the absence of God."
"God did not create evil, He created beings with free-choice."
The youth was Albert Einstein; I am 'only relating his voice.'
