Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

The Lie that Angered Einstein

It is very clear that Einstein didn’t believe the Bible, in an afterlife, or in a personal God--as revealed in the Scriptures. But he definitely wasn’t an atheist, as portrayed on so many atheist sites. This is obviously done to suggest that atheism is somehow intellectual, when it’s not.

Here is the quote in question once again, for those who haven’t read his words closely:

"In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views." The Expanded Quotable Einstein, Princeton University, page 214 (italics added).

Here now is Professor Richard Dawkins doing exactly what made Einstein really angry--portraying him as an atheist, when in truth, Einstein was no fool:

"Einstein sometimes invoked the name of God (and he is not the only atheistic scientist to do so), inviting misunderstanding by supernaturalists eager to misunderstand and claim so illustrious a thinker as their own." The God Delusion, Richard Dawkins http://richarddawkins.net/firstChapter,101 (italics added).

So the quote stays in my blog header, not to bolster the case for God (we don’t need bolstering in the slightest), but as a reminder that every time Einstein is used in such a way, it is done deceitfully.
