It's also amazing how often atheists quote Einstein to support their case. Neither really have any right to.
Einstein almost certainly believed in some sort of Deity. He was opposed to religion when it stopped people from thinking for themselves, but I've never seen anything to suggest that he was in any way opposed to belief in God.
As usual, feel free shoot me down in flames if you think I'm wrong :)
“You may call me an agnostic… I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist whose fervor is mostly due to a painful act of liberation from the fetters of religious indoctrination received in youth. I prefer an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being.” - Albert Einstein
To me the fundamental basis of my atheism is “an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being.”
I guess your belief in God shares a similar humility.
What neither Einstein nor science in general does is support the notion of God as a “bearded thunderer”.
“The Bible is held by believers to be the product of divine inspiration. Yet, as we have seen, there are passages in the text which are susceptible to two or more possible interpretations. That ambiguity allows the possibility of error which is in itself error if the purpose was to provide unambiguous and incontrovertible instruction to all.”—Seversky @ Oct. 23 - Uncommonly Dense Thread 3
