Google, the internet company, yesterday said it had seen a "sharp drop" in traffic to its Gmail service from Iran, an apparent result of censorship that coincides with...

What's all this about evil? -gw

In one of His letters ‘Abdu’l-Bahá says:
— As to thy remark, that ‘Abdu’l-Bahá hath said to some of the believers that evil never exists, nay rather, it is a nonexistent thing, this is but truth, inasmuch as the greatest evil is man’s going astray and being veiled from truth. Error is lack of guidance; darkness is absence of light; ignorance is lack of knowledge; falsehood is lack of truthfulness; blindness is lack of sight; and deafness is lack of hearing.
