Well, you know Religion does not prove anything and these trueism are circlular logic. Deny Christ. Meaningless. This is the reason used by the Church to persecute Jews. Religion is stinky bathwater, we want the baby, but not the bathwater. We have been round and round on the topic. And even Einstein's name's been used in vain. So, just because religions define God as this or that, and the silly definitions change, don't let religion confuse us. Power trips are important subjects or else there is no power to trip about, I guess. IAC, I'd say my view is closer to Albert's. There is absolutely no evidence, for me of a Just, Loving, Smooting and Smiting, Micro-managing, Busybody, Lfetime-helper-friend, santa claus God. I just have to presume that this is the bathwater that stinks to so many here. It is the mental cop-out, and means that Christianity today, especially evangelicals, are practicing a Fate based belief.
Can Tarot or Dice, Joss Sticks, etc, be any different, than fervent gemme gemme praying?
Knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty - it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude; in this sense, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man. (Albert Einstein)
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. (Albert Einstein, 1954)
I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings. (Albert Einstein)
