Return to "Religion" essay
REPLY #97 TO
(R) When people quote Einstein as saying "Religion without science is blind. Science without religion is lame.", they should remember a few other quotes from Einstein:
"I am a deeply religious nonbeliever.... This is a somewhat new kind of religion."It should be perfectly obvious to anyone reading these quotes that what Einstein meant by "religion" was the awe he felt at the workings of the universe, not a belief in a supernatural deity.
I got all of these quotes from http://www.stcloud.msus.edu/~lesikar/einstein/short.html
(MB) Thanks for the quotes and the source. This should help to point out that apologists have to contort the truth in order to claim support for their views. Hopefully, this will persuade others not to accept such claims at face value. How "moral" can a religious system be when its adherents have to rely on deceptions in order to promote the system?
