When I first watched this video I felt a certain “ring” of truth but that was simply to the message it contained. The idea that it was Albert Einstein, who certainly had the aptitude to thwart a professors shallow claims, was the part created by wishful thinking.
What I’ve read about Einstein goes along with Snopes account that this encounter never really happened. (Not sure why Snopes title this page Malice of Absence.)
But whether Einstein or someone else came up with these observations doesn’t change integral premise.
Is evil solely the absence of good?
There’s a great deal of merit to the concept and it fits so nicely alongside the aforementioned conceits. I feel the need to give it more thought, or perhaps God Himself will bless me with greater wisdom.
