Yes, I expect it to change. Why? Because religious and superstitious beliefs make no sense.

One should only believe anything to the extent the belief can be justified by reason and evidence. Wide acceptance of that statement would be revolutionary and will take time - like all new ideas. It took centuries for the idea that the world was flat to be accepted. Evolution isn't accepted by some 'scientists'. We are observing a process, not an event.

I don't feel the need to touch God simply to believe in him. Feel free to judge that any way you choose. Also, It's funny to me how so many people misquote Einstein (who was not an atheist, by the way).
You need to visit a library sometime...

"Thus I came...to a deep religiosity, which, however, reached an abrupt end at the age of 12. Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached a conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true.... Suspicion against every kind of authority grew out of this experience...an attitude which has never left me." ~Albert Einstein

"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." ~Albert Einstein

"I do not believe in immortality of the individual, and I consider ethics to be an exclusively human concern with no superhuman authority behind it." ~Albert Einstein

"I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own -- a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty. Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotism." ~Albert Einstein

"There remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion." - Albert Einstein

"Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune intoned in the distance by an invisible player." - Albert Einstein

"Do you believe in immortality? No, and one life is enough for me." - Albert Einstein

"Scientists were rated as great heretics by the church, but they were truly religious men because of their faith in the orderliness of the universe." - Albert Einstein

"When the solution is simple, God is answering." - Albert Einstein
