Since God created the universe, and hate (or evil) is a part of this universe, and nothing else could create something out of nothing, then couldn't you conclude that God created hate (or evil)?

I don't believe that the universe was created by a God in the first place and I don't believe that hate or evil is something that exists on it's own. Hate is an emotion, not some sort of entity.

There are many people who do believe that God created the universe. However, in every description I hear about Him, He has beneficent qualities. Many people say that He is Love. But could he also be Hate, Indifference, anything else that he created? Or is he just too complex to understand in human terms?
