I'm just saying that we should look at everything that has happened in the world and ask ourselves, what has god done for us. Its not like he's doing anything about the war and poverty in this world.
[INDENT] "I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religion than it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it."
"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 egotism."
"I do not believe in the immortality of the individual, and I consider ethics to be an exclusively human concern with no superhuman authority behind it."
"If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for a reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed."
[/INDENT]This should be a good point here that Einstein is making. It is sad how childish the human race is. In fact I wouldn't even consider us to be children.
Are we ever going to gain any knowledge from believing in god. No!!!!!!!!!!!
The only way we will gain knowledge in the future is in science.
Did god invent the microchip. No. Did religion help us in that invention. No.
