Einstein rejected the idea that the Jews are God’s chosen people: “For me the Jewish religion like all others is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions. And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity have no different quality for me than all other people. As far as my experience goes, they are no better than other human groups, although they are protected from the worst cancers by a lack of power. Otherwise I cannot see anything ‘chosen’ about themJune 1, 2010 at 11:26 am #408969June 1, 2010 at 11:53 am #408946June 1, 2010 at 12:37 pm #408903June 1, 2010 at 1:27 pm #408855June 1, 2010 at 1:44 pm #408839June 1, 2010 at 2:00 pm #408822June 1, 2010 at 2:10 pm #408811June 1, 2010 at 2:41 pm #408778June 1, 2010 at 3:27 pm #408739::
It may come as a suprise to you, but, yes, most people, Christians and otherwise, know that Albert Einstein was, among other things, a mathematician. Maybe the real question is why do you single out only Christians as the people who may not know that fact, and what does it have to do with anything else that Einstein said about other parts of life?June 1, 2010 at 3:48 pm #408716::
Einstein hated mathematics. He was a theoretical physicist, I think. But I think it stands as self-evident to most that he was just as brilliant a philosopher as he was a scientist. I think that before anything else, the word I would use to describe Einstein would be “Thinker” because that’s what brought him to physics in the first place. He was brilliant, but I would bet that his intuitive brilliance was more greatly propagated through his natural curiosity than intelligence.June 1, 2010 at 4:24 pm #408687June 1, 2010 at 4:59 pm #408653June 1, 2010 at 5:08 pm #408648June 1, 2010 at 5:39 pm #408618June 1, 2010 at 6:05 pm #408591::
Okay, I don’t see your point. A physicist might use one of his statements about physics. If you’re a chef, you might look for something he said about food.
If it’s a conversation in which his philosophical statements are relevant, it’s only natural they probably won’t refer to his mathematical quotations.

A particularly inane question, I am pretty certain that there are many christians who realise that Einstein was a physicist. This discipline involved a very high degree of mathematical skill. His personal beliefs are just that, his. It is my belief that God gave him the talent he had and enabled him to achieve what he did.
