On Understanding the Divine

“We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.”
-Albert Einstein, as quoted in Glimpses of the Great (1930) by G. S. Viereck.  

It is simply Man’s folly to think he can divine the true nature of divinity; and then impose the “Wrath of God” on those that would not share, to the last detail, his own limited grasp and faulty notions of God.
