Default Does evil exist?

My son sent me this.

This is VERY thought provoking - read it all - it makes a great discussion topic.
>
> --
>
> Does evil exist? Did God create evil?
>
> The 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, quite
> pleased with himself, 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 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. Every body 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? 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 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 is
> 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 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
