The Unknown Einstein

Many intellectuals will often say that Albert Einstein was an atheist to validate their own atheism.  This is foolish to the most absurd degree.  Why?  It seems there was more to the man than some admit.  The following quotes from Einstein will show you this (all of these are taken from The Expanded Quotable Einstein, Princeton University Press):

“I want to know how God created the world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts. The rest are just details.” (page 202)

“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 makes me really angry is that they quote me for support of such views.” (page 214)

“I see a pattern, but my imagination cannot picture the maker of the pattern. I see a clock, but I cannot envision the clockmaker. The human mind is unable to conceive of the four dimensions, so how can it conceive of a God, before whom a thousand years and a thousand dimensions are as one.” (page 208)

“I have firmly resolved to bite the dust, when my time comes, with the minimum of medical assistance, and up to then I will sin to my wicked heart’s content.”  (page 61)

“To one bent on age, death will come as a release. I feel this quite strongly now that I have grown old myself and have come to regard death like an old debt, at long last to be discharged. Still, instinctively one does everything possible to postpone the final settlement. Such is the game that nature plays with us.”  (page 63)
