  • good read, but this is not from A.Einstein

  • 1. The title of this crappy presentation is spelled wrong. It should be entitled 'doesevilexist'. Instead, the title of the powerpoint file is 'Does_evil_exits.pps' and the page name is 'doesevilexists'. How does evil 'exists'? Misspelling. My point: It's quite obvious by reading through this information, and the slew of bad punctuation and spellings within the presentation's text, that the author is either startlingly lazy in fact-checking and spell-checking, or is slightly illiterate -- both of which qualify for taking everything in the presentation itself with a large handful of salt.

    2. This story is completely made up, and never happened except in the mind of a fiction writer and in the minds of those perpetuating its existence.

    3. [Related to point 2, above] Einstein never said this to anyone, especially a professor. This is pure storytelling fiction. In fact, Einstein did not believe in a god at all. He enjoyed using the term 'god' to describe the interplay and origins of the universe and its constituents. Only ignorant theologians and sloppy journalists would ever attribute Einstein's life to one of Christianity, as there are plenty of personal declarational writings out there one may read that Einstein himself rebuts his being labeled a Christian, or hardly even a Deist-more of a Pantheist, really. Fed up with being errantly labeled as religious, Einstein once said, explicitly:

    'It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it'

    4. The author of this PowerPoint presentation (allegedly 'Marcel Cohen') just copied the text out of this 3-year-old generic chain letter, inserted some sappy piano music, and added a bunch of beautiful nature photographs whose composers were most certainly unaware that their works would be both plagiarized and vandalized in this context. They are vastly different styles of photography, and a thorough internet search yields no results for any photographer by that name. There is no original work here, but simply a lazy retelling of a made-up story, with plagiarized content, meant to charm the hearts of the naive and emotionally reflexive folks who might find it in their inbox or on this website.

    5. I needn't bore you with the obtrusive problems in the elementary-school logic of the slideshow text, or with displaying the high volume of philosophical and scientific errancies in the story's dialogue. I just hope that someday people start actually thinking about what people tell them, instead of just reacting emotionally to it with a warm fuzzy and then blindly passing it on as golden to another victim in their circle of friends.

  1. 1. Marcel Cohen presents his art of photography
  2. 2. Does evil exist?
  3. 3. One day, a professor of a university decided to defy his pupils.
  4. 4. He asked : did God create everything that exists?
  5. 5. A student answered bravely: "yes, He did."
  6. 6. - Everything? asked the teacher. -Yes, everything. Was the answer of the student.
  7. 7. In this case, God also created evil, correct? Because evil exists. - said the teacher…
  8. 8. To that, the student had no answer and remained in silence. The teacher was delighted at the opportunity to prove one more time that faith was only a myth.
  9. 9. Suddenly, another student raised his hand and asked: “May I ask you a question , professor?” “ Of course” , was the answer.
  10. 10. <ul><li>Does cold exist? </li></ul><ul><li>-Of course, answered the professor </li></ul><ul><li>Did you never feel cold? </li></ul>
  11. 11. “ Actually, sir, cold does not exist. According to studies in Physics, cold is the total and complete absence of heat.
  12. 12. An object can only be studied if it has and transmits energy and it is the heat of an object that transmits it’s energy .
  13. 13. “ Without heat, the objects are inert, incapable to react. But cold does not exist. We created the term cold to explain the lack of heat”
  14. 14. “ And darkness?” , continues the student. -”It exists”, replied the professor
  15. 15. “ Again, you’re wrong sir, darkness is the total absence of light.
  16. 16. You can study light and brightness, but not darkness. The prism of Nichols shows the variety of different colors in which the light can be decomposed according to the longitude of the waves.
  17. 17. Darkness is the term we created to explain the total absence of light”
  18. 18. And finally, the sudent asked: “ And evil, sir, does evil exist?”
  19. 19. God did not create evil. Evil is the absence of God in people’s hearts, it is the absence of love, humanity and faith. Love and faith are like heat and light. They exist. Their absence lead to evil”
  20. 20. Now it was the professor’s turn to remain silent..
  21. 21. The name of the student was : ALBERT EINSTEIN
