Who cares if he was smart, it doesn’t mean he was infallible? Shouldn’t you all just let the guy be?
It is the christians that do it because they try to twist one quote to say he was a christian!!
Certain it is that a conviction, akin to religious feeling, of the rationality and intelligibility of the world lies behind all scientific work of a higher order. The firm belief, which is bound up with deep feeling, in a superior mind revealing himself in the world of experience, represents my conception of God, which may, therefore be described in common parlance as ‘pantheistic’ Albert Einstein
But Einstein himself was horrified and went to great lengths to say he was not christian!!
“I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.” – Einstein
The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this. – Einstein
I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own — a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty. Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotisms. – Einstein
Because most people respect his opinion
Because great people’s opinions is what established the system which runs the world today.
Einstein is one of the fallible people whose fallacies are far superior than those of people like you and me.
You’ve just highlighted the main reason i don’t particularly feel like becoming an insane genius, congrats.
He’s the one who decided to inflict his god-beliefs on the rest of us.
