Riddle Me This

I kind of dug this little riddle.
If you're curious, I saw it here first.

75% of grade one students solved this riddle, but only 5% of a Stanford graduate class figured it out!

Can you answer the following riddle?

1. The word has seven letters
2. Preceded God.
3. Greater than God.
4. More Evil than the devil
5. All poor people have it
6. Wealthy people need it.
7. If you eat it, you will die!




Did you figure it out yet?




Try hard before looking at the answer



Got it yet?





Ready to give up????





The Answer is: NOTHING!

NOTHING has 7 letters.
NOTHING preceded God.
NOTHING is greater than God.
NOTHING is more Evil than the devil.
All poor people have NOTHING.
Wealthy people need NOTHING.
If you eat NOTHING, you will die.


Nifty, huh?

Ah, riddles. I love telling them, but hate solving them. I have one I read as a kid and have been telling for years. Here's my showstumper:

It's the beginning of eternity,
The end of time and space
The beginning of every end,
And the end of every race.
