Albert Einstein Religion

Albert Einstein, often found on posters in science classrooms, jokingly sticking his tongue out, once stated, “The more I study science, the more I believe in God”. Einstein was a brilliant scientist most famously known for some of his discoveries such as the theory of relativity, quantum mechanics, and the theory of special relativity, otherwise known as the formula E=mc2. There are many theories that he developed that discuss the scientific concepts and scientific research about the truths behind life and nature. What Einstein means in his quote is that the more he learns about life and the universe, through his scientific research, the more life and the universe become more of a mystery to him. This is important because the science culture …show more content…
Many kids, that are born from families with religious backgrounds, are often baptized into their faith at a young age. The decision is mostly made up for kids by their parents. Although there are many instances where people choose to get baptized when they are older, and it is their decision to do so. This is often where the barrier between Religion and science is born. Society tells us that when you become part of a certain religion, you adopt the full belief system of that Religion. Which is why, today, we have the argument between say, evolutionists and creationists. There is the notion that if you believe in the theories that the Bible may be telling you, then how can you believe in evolution or more simply: science. This barrier, therefore, is most importantly placed upon the two by society. It is a reason for much tension between religion and science, most notably on the topics of whether or not God is real, evolution and creation, physics, and even the argument on where microbes and viruses come from. There should not even be a barrier between the two. If society could allow this wall to be taken down, then religion and science could complement each other. They could coexist freely without any tension or arguments caused by people who disagree with each other because, as I mentioned in the preceding paragraph, science …show more content…
The same exact reason is why people follow a religion. Which is why, today, we have a religion called scientology. There are truths hidden in research and readings and findings all around the world. People are just finding new ways explore and dig deeper. That is also why religion and science are two of the most discussed and argued topics, next to politics and economics. Because there is truth. That’s where the masses flock. And, if people don’t find what they are looking for they easily move on. Not realizing that they were probably looking in the right spot, just not hard enough. Just as Gillen holds the passion to look for truth in both, humans should too. While readers do not have to agree with everything he says because of personal opinion or beliefs they should understand what he is doing by bringing them together. Also, I would encourage other writers to read the Bible, even if religion is not something one might believe in. It is one of the greatest pieces of literature written by, yes I know its hard to believe, humans. Also study science for fun. As I said before, humans seek out truth, and what better way to do that by reading things we know as fact. Scientific research has given new insights to people all over the world and will continue to until the end of time. But, until we can understand that there should be no barrier between science and religion, we will be stuck as the
