The God Deluded by BlameThe1st The God Deluded by BlameThe1st
List of God-deluded idiots as they appear:
Sir Francis Bacon, Galileo Galilei, William Shakespeare, Rene Descartes, Sir Robert Boyle, Sir Isaac Newton, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Joseph Priestly, Thomas Jefferson, Noah Webster, William Wilberforce, Michael Faraday, George Washington Carver, Albert Einstein, Francis Collins.

Before anyone corrects me: yes, not all of these men were Bible-believing Christians (many were non-religious deists). And yes, simply because these intelligent men believed in God, doesn’t mean God does exist, or that people should believe in him.

However, these men do shatter the stereotype that people who acknowledge the existence of God are unintelligent, irrational, anti-science ignoramuses who are a threat to rational thought and free inquiry.

Here are some other God-believing simpletons you may know of:
Aristotle
Leonardo Da Vinci
Nicholas Copernicus
Michelangelo
Johannes Kepler
John Milton
Blaise Pascal
Baruch Spinoza
John Locke
Immanuel Kant
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Ludwig van Beethoven
John Stuart Mill
Louis Pasteur
Gregor Mendel
William Thomson Kelvin
Jules Verne
Theodore Roosevelt
Max Planck
T.S. Eliot
J.R.R. Tolkien
William Golding
John F. Kennedy
Charles M. Schulz
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
and thousands more...

Einstein quotes:

“Behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force is my religion. To that extent, I am in point of fact, religious.”[8]

“Every scientist becomes convinced that the laws of nature manifest the existence of a spirit vastly superior to that of men.”[9]

“Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the universe – a spirit vastly superior to that of man.”[10]

“The divine reveals itself in the physical world.”[11]

“My God created laws… His universe is not ruled by wishful thinking but by immutable laws.”[12]

“I want to know how God created this world. I want to know his thoughts.”[13]

“What I am really interested in knowing is whether God could have created the world in a different way.”[14]

The good old fallacy: appeal to historical people who believed in god, and ignore that most of them lived in a time when we had no better explanation for how the universe formed.

Also, Einstein was expressly a-religious, thank you very much. He considered religious faith childish, and resented the way his remarks on god (referring to "god" as a poetic concept) were taken out of context to misrepresent his views on religion. 

Reality check: today, when we have an explanation to how the universe began, where we came from, and so forth, a majority of academics and scientists are non-religious or flat out atheists. Because that's what education does to you- it opens your eyes.

And yet blind faith was Einstein's (The one and only person out of the whole lineup you could latch onto) ultimate downfall in his final pursuits...

Also, you're being intellectually dishonest when you insist that religion is anathema to scientific progress. I've got a nice list to throw at you...

You say that they lived in times when no better explanation existed? These people learned the secrets of the world, but never did their faith wane.

They saw the veneer unravel before their eyes and they still believed in God.

So kindly take your condescension and blow it out your eyestalk.

I could have said quite a bit about the other ones, like how Isaac Newton, genius that he was, also believed in alchemy... it's just that Einstein is the single most misused and misrepresented in this contect.

No, I'm just generally being correct. Where science and education progresses, religion weakens- and where religion is overly strong, science and education is weak. This is an inescapable fact of the world of today, and the world of the past. Throw any list of religious scientists at me- that doesn't disprove it; most if not all of them are going to be moderates who rationalize the wildly irrational parts (all of it) to make it fit with a rational world.

They did. End of. 

They saw no "veneer"; they lived when they knew not the slightest thing of a big bang or evolution. They hadn't the first clue how the universe began, or where we as a species came from, or how old the earth was, and "god" just so happened to be the only explanation on hand.

Nope, never will. I don't condescend the religious if I can avoid it, but when they try to put on a pretense that their side- the one with irrational, unprovable ideas- is the more intellectual one, a talking to is earned.

Validate? What am I validating? It is my understanding that the loathing of elitism is fairly widespread.

I've got nothing against atheists. Disagree with? Sure. Hate? Not at all. Understand? Absolutely.

But I do have a problem with snobbery.

Next time, stay in your high horse's saddle. We don't need the 88th Great King Rat to descend from His cloud of academia (An institution founded by believing men >_>) to educate the superstitious cavemen huddling around their graven icons to their bearded sky god.

Next time, spare us the same, tired, broken record routine of 'blah blah there's no God, blah, science proves that science works blah blah' spiel.

We've heard it before.

Intellectual dishonesty and elitism go hand in hand.

I'm not talking about the fact he's an atheist, which is what he and many like him would *SORELY* love to be the case.

I'm talking about the attitude. The condescending, pat-on-the-head, 'silly rabbit Trix are for atheists' attitude.

So what you're saying is that people like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were great people who changed the world,because they believed in god.
No rudeness intended,but that makes no sense.
These people weren't good because they believed in a fairy tale,they were good people because they believed in goodness to others,not because they believed in god alone.
And reminder that for every good person who believes/believed in god,there are two more theists who were/are complete human scum.

Not really. Seeing god as figurative or symbolic is not the same thing at all.

Furthermore, you seem to be confused as to what deism and theism are. "Deism," as defined by dictionary.com, is "1. belief in the existence of a God on the evidence of reason and nature only, with rejection of supernatural revelation (distinguished from theism). 2. belief in a God who created the world but has since remained indifferent to it." And "theism" is "1. the belief in one God as the creator and ruler of the universe, without rejection of revelation (distinguished from deism). 2. belief in the existence of a god or gods (opposed to atheism)."

Then let me correct myself: Einstein did not ascribe to the idea of a personal god or to an anthropomorphic one. He called the concept naïve and childlike. I didn't mean to imply that he didn't believe in a deity of some kind, but he was far from a theist. See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religiou…

Honestly, I don't even know what you are trying to prove... 
The man strait up said he was convinced of God's existence by the complexity of the universe.
That was the entire point. Which "god" he believes in is moot. :movingon:
