“I do not believe in the God of theology who rewards good and punishes evil. My God created laws that take care of that. His universe is not ruled by wishful thinking, but by immutable laws.”

Albert Einstein1879 – 1955

    Einstein also said “It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. 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 religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.”

    It seems to be idiosyncratic among the very intelligent to say things about god which leave that person’s feelings open to interpretation or misunderstanding. The very fact that Mr. Einstein talks about “his god” is the source of the misunderstanding. I know such persons often have a weakness for metaphor but in employing them they ought not be surprised to see their meaning distorted.

    These two statements are perfectly consistent in proclaiming Einstein as a Deist which I’m not certain was true either. He called himself an agnostic and said he believed in Spinoza’s god, that is, nature. There is no easy label to apply here.

    If they’re so “immutable”, tech, then why so many instances of them being “mutated” in the bible? And why doesn’t that happen today?

    The immutable laws are laws of nature, and have NEVER been broken (hence-immutable) by any god, person, event, or even by nature itself. Gods don’t NEED rules of physics or chemistry or even logic. They have magic, they have whim. Immutability is inapplicable to them.

    You can always count on Tech to make a bold and completely baseless assertion!

    Unlike some only opening my mouth to change feet. Stick with the bird watching Dan.If you studied the Bible like you study the birds you may find the truth.
