Have any of the New Atheists toured [[Islam]]ic countries giving lectures in which they condemn [[Allah]], [[Muhammad]], Islam, or Muslims? Have any of them debated Muslims in Islamic countries?

Albert Einstein Quotes on Spirituality

1. I want to know how God created this 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 details.

2. Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.

3. 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.

4. The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge.

5. Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.

6. The scientists’ religious feeling takes the form of a rapturous amazement at the harmony of natural law, which reveals an intelligence of such superiority that, compared with it, all the systematic thinking and acting of human beings is an utterly insignificant reflection.

"It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. 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."

From a letter Einstein wrote in English, dated 24 March 1954.

"The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weakness, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still purely primitive, legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this."

Albert Einstein called himself an agnostic, while disassociating himself from the label atheist, preferring, he said, "an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being.

Einstein rejected the label atheist. Einstein stated: "I have repeatedly said that in my opinion the idea of a personal God is a childlike one. You may call me an agnostic, but I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist.

Watch as Creationist troll LCN tries to revise Einstein's beliefs according to Creationism.

Of course this is what Einstein thought of Christianity, pay attention to the year:

"About God, I cannot accept any concept based on the authority of the Church... As long as I can remember. I have resented mass indoctrination. I cannot prove to you there is no personal God, but if I were to speak of him, I would be a liar. I do not believe in the God of theology who rewards good and punishes evil. His universe is not ruled by wishful thinking, but by immutable laws" (1954).[64]

Einstein - the religious red herring which Theists like to bring up, to avoid presenting evidence of god.

Atheism predates Einstein and is a conclusion based on facts - there's just no god..

Einstein definitely Atheist. Only reason he didn't say it was fearing persecution.

He said what he thought about Christianity very clearly in 1954:

"About God, I cannot accept any concept based on the authority of the Church... As long as I can remember. I have resented mass indoctrination. I cannot prove to you there is no personal God, but if I were to speak of him, I would be a liar. I do not believe in the God of theology who rewards good and punishes evil.

People have a conscience. Religious liars don't and will lie hard trying to keep their fantasy going. Religious liars will even lie about Atheism to protect their fragile egocentric belief-world they have created for themselves.

C) The beauty of nature .
Religious people are good at changing the subject away from no evidence of god. They talk about love, beauty and other evolved human concepts that have nothing to do with evidence of god.

God's not real. Atheists are hostile because believers are judgemental liars, whose religious lies about god are based on no evidence at all.

If religious people really believed in god, they would punish themselves for lying about it.

Atheism is a simple disbelief in tired old religious liars and the lies they tell over and over again..

Religious people find disbelief offensive and can't turn off their mental illness. So sad.

Religious people are patronising:

When a person is truly suffering, offering them an imaginary creature to talk to, is unkind & thoughtless.

When a person suffers, offering them religion is like offering them drugs to numb the pain, without getting to what the problem really is.

Religious people have already decided that the problem is 'lack of god' without ever hearing people out.

The religious mental illness must be stopped for the good of humankind.

I ask religious people to challenge themselves and provide religion-free help to those in need this holiday season.

Stop counting converts and start helping people.

Einstein struggled with religious liars misquoting him all his life:

"I have never talked to a Jesuit priest in my life and I am astonished by the audacity to tell such lies about me. From the viewpoint of a Jesuit priest I am, of course, and have always been an atheist.... It is always misleading to use anthropomorphical concepts in dealing with things outside the human sphere—childish analogies. We have to admire in humility and beautiful harmony of the structure of this world—as far as we can grasp it. And that is all."[24]

Here Einstein refers to religion has 'childish analogies'

Its very clear that Einstein was an atheist who was deeply critical of religion, especially Christianity.

He has already seen the effects of Christianity on Hitler during the war time and what damage it caused.
