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...

Look, I get it already. Atheists are all arrogant elitist assholes. Christians are morally superior and more intelligent. You seem to stress this quite often.

False dichotomy is false. That is the point.

Indeed, there is a difference between believing in God and being religious. Personally, I'm more of a theist, but I call myself a "Christian" only in the philosophical sense.

Sounds good. I'm leaning more towards Deism myself, but I still call myself a Christian.

I don't believe Einstein believed in God the same way conventional theists do. So far as I know, he didn't believe in an actual, literal deity ...

Deist. Theist. Same difference.

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)."

"God does not play dice with the universe" - Albert Einstein.

Note Einstein was a strong proponent of "intelligent design" (If that's not "belief in God" what is?)
