Light, Heat & God

Here is an interesting piece that I found while surfing at
Interesting Facts:

Darkness is nothing but a absence of light. You can measure intensity of the light to infinity but can you do the same for darkness? Cold is nothing but absence of heat. Heat can be measured to infinity but cold maintains a steady value at a certain degree. Absolute zero (-460 F / -273.4 C) is the total absence of heat; and all matter becomes inert and incapable of reaction at that temperature. It was proclaimed that Albert Einstein said: "Evil does not exist, or at least it 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."

I certainly do not agree that Satan / evil is simply the absence of God... the teachings of Jesus refer to the 'person' Satan and not the personification... (although God's absence will be the very worst part about hell)... but the above certainly makes for great pondering.
