I am reading a biography on Einstein and found this paragraph interesting. A reporter asked Einstein if he believed in God.
“I am not an atheist,” he began. “The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. 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. We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws.”
The universe is indeed marvelously arranged.
One of my New Years resolutions is to read more this year. The book I’m currently reading is Einstein, His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson. I haven’t actually finished the book yet. I’m close to finished and do recommend reading this book. I enjoyed Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Job so much I decided to see what else this author had written and found this as well as a biography of Benjamin Franklin.
I enjoy Walter’s writing style and this book has made me think way more than I planned on. When he writes about Einstein’s theories he gets very technical and in depth. Sometimes it’s almost a physics or math text book in the explanations but done so in a much more enjoyable way than I remember physics and math being in school! This is a great biography that gives great detail into the life of Albert Einstein.
