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.

You are truly clueless: atheist means does not believe in god.

This means we do not know either.

Your desperation is showing, though.

Nope. I'd be and to the same things either way-- I have not sinned.

But clearly, you are just jealous.

STOP LYING:

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

Further proof that Einstein was Atheist:

"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 egotisms."

-- Albert Einstein, obituary in New York Times, 19 April 1955, quoted from James A Haught, "Breaking the Last Taboo" (1996)

Religious liars are dumb, that's why they want to claim a genius for their cult.

The poster claimed Einstein was agnostic.
That does not equate to claiming him as a member in any particular religion.
Considering your inflamatory language you might want to examine the causes of your own bias.

The poster is a creationist troll, who has claims that Einstein is religious in the past.

He didn't just do that for the first time, it is a deliberate campaign, along with other creationist posters.

Unless you challegenge religious spam, it will not go away.

Its actually your attitude that permits people like this, and sways lay people's opinions towards ignorance of Einsteins actual beliefs.

You are simply implying that Einstein was a liar. When he was asked if he was an atheist, his answer was, "Absolutely not.!" True that he couldn't refer to God as a person but, an atheist he could never have been. You must be an atheist trying to bring Einstein into your circle. Too bad for you because he was a Jew and, when asked if he believed in God, he said that all his life was trying to catch God at His work of Creation. At the time he was working on a formula about the expansion of the universe. Joking or not, he associated the expansion of the universe with Creation.

Einstein was an Atheist, he said it himself in numerous quotes.

There's no such thing as god, religious liars want to claim Einstein for themselves, because they want to cover up for the fact that their cults are dumb.

Go to any religious cult and they will throw Einstein bullsh*t at you. It is because they cannot prove their gods and they need Einstien's genius weight to convince people of their religious lies.

Wake the f*ck up, there's no god and religious liars are fraudulent people with a disease that can be treated if they voluntarily go to a doctor.
