On a Rational Understanding of God

"Science not only purifies the religious impulse of the dross of its anthropomorphism but also contributes to a religious spiritualization of our understanding of life.
The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge."
-Albert Einstein

Our concept and understanding of God necessarily progresses with our own human evolution and our ability to rise above our our base instincts from which we have emerged from the mists of primordial emergence on this earth.

Fear reflects are base origins as creatures on this earth fighting for survival. We strive for God insofar as we seek a rational understanding of the universe and our place within it.

  1. Hello! Well, many years ago I used to study Einstein and relativity, but I was actually a very serious biology student and a good mathematician. However, eventually, my understanding of things matured, and I found myself grappling with numerous inconsistences in Einstein’s ideas. They simply are NOT correct. I didn’t give this much thought until after I finished a rather complex statistics theorem for randomized blocks. I then put these results on a web site, http://foossolvesunified.com. Thank you..

  2. Science uses logic to explain that which religion often tries to explain in a “magical” way.

    Because people fear the unknown to varying levels, both Einstein’s equation of relativity as well as various religious beliefs are naturally accepted to ease these fears.

    I accept Einstein’s formula for its practical purposes in progressing science, but I agree with the previous comment that it is not an and all of all tools for explaining how everything in this universe is related to one in another.
