    Not sure what to think about this~ not surprised by his opinion considering he was a scientist.

    "In it, Einstein said that "the word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish."
    "For me," he added, "the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions."

    He aslo said in 1932, "There is not the slightest indication that nuclear energy will ever be obtainable. It would mean that the atom would have to be shattered at will."

    He may not always have been right, but when he was, he was way more right than anyone else.

    Thanks Christine:)

    Albert Einstein quotes on God and religion:

    I want to know God's thoughts; the rest are details.
    I am convinced that He (God) does not play dice.
    God is subtle but he is not malicious.
    Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.
    God does not care about our mathematical difficulties. He integrates empirically.

    no

    See what happens when I skim? :crazy:

    I agree with this

    "In it, Einstein said that "the word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish."
    "For me," he added, "the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions"

    Many of our founding fathers were against organised religion or even religion itself.

    Well, it sounds to me like they believed in religion and what God could do for their country. It's unfortunate now that the state and religion can't be combined. :(

    You can find as many and more links proving their devotion to separation of church and state - and how very much many of them did not believe in religion. The Treaty of Tripoli is one good example - a statement that our government was not, in any way, founded on the Christian religion, voted on and passed unanimously by the Senate of the time - I think back then they knew well what this country was founded on. There's plenty of other letters, quotes, or simply reading the Constitution where they are quite careful to never so much as refer to God - let alone make any state religion.


    Combining state and religion is what they came from, and were determined not to go back to. They know how that corrupts both state and religion.
