Contrary

Einstein

Leftists don’t quite know how to evaluate Albert Einstein. He is considered to be a scientist’s scientist. And scientists are anti-religion and mostly atheist, right? Scientists are at the vanguard of secular thought and philosophy. There’s no place for religion.

But Einstein not only overthrew Newtonian physics he also overthrew the idea that religion and science could not coexist. Some of his more memorable quotes follow…

“I am convinced that He does not play dice.”

“My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.”

“Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.”

“I want to know God’s thoughts; the rest are details.”

Your humble blogger continually wonders why the left is so frazzled by religion, just as they are frazzled by Sarah Palin.

  1. I don’t think scientists are any different than anybody else as far as religion goes, numbers wise. They might be less fundamentalist though.

    A lot of fundamentalists consider anybody that isn’t a fundamentalist to be the same as an atheist, so I guess you have to define your terms. Religion means different things to different people.

    I’m pretty much of pure atheist, I don’t think there are many of those at all. Most people at least fall into the spiritual but not religious category.

    A lot of Right Wingers don’t believe you can be religious and conservative at the same time. They believe God is a Wingnut. From what I understand about religious philosophy, politics doesn’t really figure into it at all.

  2. I meant religious and liberal at the same time.

  3. Fundamentalists are not into the cafeteria concept, picking and choosing what to believe. Whether they are right or wrong I just don’t know.

    Picking and choosing is what led to the approval of abortion. I just don’t think any worthwhile civilization would approve of it. To me it is a sign of decadence.
