News and articles about Religion and Belief

Many do ask if Einstein revere, believe in God, or was he an atheist. Why? Because we live in a kind of society many are ashamed of the gospel and wouldn’t even glorify God’s name since society wrongly see them as weak or those on the path of mental derailing.

I guess Jesus knew this problem and since he could see it as well in the days to come, he said, “Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.”

I know that many scientists believe in God, while others are atheists too but I don’t know which part Einstein belongs. “Did Einstein believe in God?” I requested from Google search and many articles about the subject popped up including one with the same caption.

Why an article about Einstein if he did believe in God? Interestingly, reading some of the quotes of the great German scientist, one about God caught my attention. “God is subtle, but he is not malicious,” said Albert Einstein.

It’s true that God is subtle because not easy to notice or understand. The reason we often hear ‘Mysterious or omnipotent God.’ According to Richard Dawkins, the British Ethologist and one of the writers on the theory of evolution, Einstein was an atheist.

The presence of God can be felt in many ways. Many want to see or feel something before they believe it. But it's impossible to see God’s face before believing that He exists.

Certain events can change the mind of atheists to acknowledge the existence of God

 “Einstein sometimes invoked the name of God, and he is not the only atheistic scientist to do so, inviting misunderstanding by supernaturalists eager to misunderstand and claim the illustrious thinker as their own," said Dawkins but was he right?

According to Dawkins, some scientists sound religious, but if you delve more deeply into their thinking, they are in fact atheists and he refers Einstein as an example. However, a publication which appeared in ‘The Washington Times’ on June 11, 2015, proves Dawkins wrong.

According to the publication over two dozen of Albert Einstein’s personal letters, some which reveal that he was not an atheist will be auctioned by a California-based auction house Profiles in History, in Los Angeles.

“We all know about what he accomplished, how he changed the world with the theory of relativity. But these letters show the other side of the story — how he advised his children, how he believed in God,” said Joseph Maddalena, founder of Profiles in History, The Associated Press reported. Reference:

God and science

God and science are two subjects that always lead to a debate but what many can't realize is without God there wouldn’t be science. Some scientists have carried out experimentation and find out that what is written in the Bible is an accurate account.

Dr. Collins wrote an astounding book about DNA called The Language of God. Collins argues that biology does not undermine God. It illustrates God’s creative powers because it shows God implanted within nature a way to evolve. How God creates. Reference:

“The fool says in his heart, there is no God."They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.” Psalm 14:1. In fact, one doesn’t need to be intelligent to know that God exists, let alone an extremely intelligent man like Einstein.

In John 4:24, the Bible writes, God is a spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth." But if you want to feel His presence, then "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7.

Seeking the presence of God is done by faith because “Without faith, it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” Hebrews 11:6. 

Thus, we shouldn't be surprised that indeed Einstein believed in God.
