Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods. Albert Einstein<quoted text>
Hi Clownie :)
"All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree."
I love it when you have to use someone other than your God to try to prove your faith. Especially when you think it holds more weight than the millions of other people who believe in the supernatural.
God's word is evidently not enough.
By the way, here is something else Einstein said:
"I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation and is but a reflection of human frailty."
"True religion is real living; living with all one's soul, with all one's goodness and righteousness."
"One strength of the communist system of the East is that it has some of the character of a religion and inspires the emotions of a religion."
When you try to represent a great mind with one quote, it most often fails.
Why would a quote from you be any less important than that of a famous person?
Many famous people talked about God:
"Question with boldness even the existence of God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear." Thomas Jefferson
"Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burned, tortured, fined, and imprisoned, yet we have not advanced one inch toward uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one half of the world fools and the other half hypocrites." Notes on Virginia Thomas Jefferson
"History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes" Letter to von Humboldt, 1813 Jefferson
"In no instance have ... the churches been guardians of the liberties of the people." James Madison,
"Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise." April 1, 1774 James Madison
"I have never seen the slightest scientific proof of the religious ideas of heaven and hell, of future life for individuals, or of a personal God." Thomas Edison
"...nothing physical which sense-experience sets before our eyes, or which necessary demonstrations prove to us, ought to be called into question (much less condemned) upon the testimony of biblical passages." as quoted in Blind Watchers of the Sky, p. 101 Galileo Galilei
"All that my work has shown is that you don't have to say that the way the universe began was the personal whim of God." Stephen Hawking
So you see, not all famous people, much less scientists, agree with your mined quote.
What one can prove by quotes, another can disprove.
Speak for yourself and your personal knowledge/thoughts. Don't try to prove that what you believe is universally thought the same by those who have gone before, but rather that you have a personal reason for your belief.
