I have long felt that the truest definition of God (that I could come up with) was this: God is more like music than a man. It seems, Einstein agrees!
From Rappler‘s cover of the current Facebook debate on Einstein, God:
Historical records of his conversations show how Einstein apparently believed in the unity between religion and science: “Well, I do not think that it is necessarily the case that science and religion are natural opposites. In fact, I think that there is a very close connection between the two. Further, I think that science without religion is lame and, conversely, that religion without science is blind. Both are important and should work hand-in-hand. It seems to me that whoever doesn’t wonder about the truth in religion and in science might as well be dead.”
Einstein also had this to say: “If there is any such concept as a God, it is a subtle spirit, not an image of a man that so many have fixed in their minds. In essence, my religion consists of a humble admiration for this illimitable superior spirit that reveals itself in the slight details that we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds.”
