EINSTEIN: GOD, RELIGION & SCIENCE
PART 5: EINSTEIN’S CREDO: WHAT I BELIEVE
In the name of God Master, of the Universe, Ruler of the earth
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere and those that believe in the Bible as the Supreme authority of God’s Laws. For the record and the sign post many people that confess to be Christians are now during these trying times looking to man, materialism and God knows what as additional authorities on how to get to Heaven. Glory be to God our Father and to His Son our Savior Christ Jesus blessed by the Holy Spirit.
Due to the evident interest in Einstein’s religious beliefs by the summer of 1930 he composed a credo, “What I Believe.” This explanation concluded with an explanation of what he meant when he called himself religious:
“The most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead, a snuffed-out candle. To sense that behind anything that can be experienced there is something that our minds cannot grasp, whose beauty and sublimity reaches us only indirectly: this is religiousness. In this sense, and in this sense only, I am a devoutly religious man.” (Einstein His Life and Universe, Walter Isaacson, p. 387)
Mystery, Majesty of Religion & Science (12-18-08)
I looked back and saw many of the
greatest philosophers the foundation
thinkers seeing God. Is intellectual
energy a key ingredient here?
They knew of the greatness of the
Universe the Creation and also that
God had the only real hand in Truth.
Do believers only see the high road?
Was God to them then the center of
Truth? If so could you arrive at real
Truth without God? What happened as
science began to see only what they could see?
I now looked back and tried to
feel the emotion of Einstein as
he embraced love, reverence for
things of the mysterious.
Thus was a mystery of time
revealed as a revelation comes from
things mysterious and religion was a
mystery to him.
Now the creative artist weighed
in and emotion gave way to dream-
scapes of things imagined as thinkers
never stop feeling thought and creativity.
So there must be great splendor in
thought and deed for those that
truly think. Here we see that no
one that thinks can be alive and be,
Absent from revelations of the
mysterious. The past flows toward
us as the future unfolds as we
continue to think.
However we are able to see
marvelous things that have never
passed by any man. Is this then
Is this experience then an on-going
conversion? Do some reach out and
come home? Do some just wallow
in doubt and confusion?
Does pride prevent total submission
to the Spirit, the known and the unknown?
Can you just think on religion, Christ and God
and be religious? What do you believe?
