The fear of punishment makes the people march. Consider the hate the Church manifested against the Jews and then against the Muslims, the Crusades with their crimes, the burning stakes of the Inquisition, the tacit consent of Hitler's actions while the Jews and the Poles dug their own graves and were slaughtered. And Hitler is said to have been an alter boy! The truly religious man has no fear of life and no fear of death—and certainly no blind faith; his faith must be in his conscience.
I am therefore against all organized religion. Too often in history, men have followed the cry of battle rather than the cry of truth.

The Church has always sold itself to those in power, and agreed to any bargain in return for immunity. It would have been fine if the spirit of religion had guided the Church; instead, the Church determined the spirit of religion. Churchmen through the ages have fought political and institutional corruption very little, so long as their own sanctity and church property were preserved.
It transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural and the spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity. The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend a personal God and avoid dogmas and theology.
Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity. If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs, it would be Buddhism. These two statements are very similar, widely quoted, and seem to paraphrase some ideas in the essay " Religion and Science " see below , but neither of the two specific quotes above been properly sourced.
McFarlane author of Buddha and Einstein: The Parallel Sayings know of this statement but have not found any source for it. Any information on any definite original sources for these is welcome. This quote does not actually appear in Albert Einstein: The Human Side as is sometimes claimed.
Only two sources from before can be found on Google Books. The first is The Theosophist: Volume 86 which seems to cover the years and The quote appears attributed to Einstein on p. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.
Buddhism answers this description.
Volume 72 published by the Maha Bodhi Society of India, which seems to contain issues from throughout A number of phrases in the quote are similar to phrases in Einstein's "Religion and Science". Comparing the version of the quote in The Theosophist to the version of "Religion and Science" published in , "a cosmic religion" in the first resembles "the cosmic religious sense" in the second; "transcend a personal God" resembles "does not involve an anthropomorphic idea of God"; "covering both the natural and the spiritual" resembles "revealed in nature and in the world of thought"; "the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity" resembles "experience the totality of existence as a unity full of significance"; and "Buddhism answers this description" resembles "The cosmic element is much stronger in Buddhism".
These phrases appear in the same order in both cases, and the ones from "Religion and Science" are all from a single paragraph of the essay. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. Attributed in emails in , as debunked at "Malice of Absence" at Snopes. Evil is the absence of God. This statement has been attributed to others before Einstein; its first attribution to Einstein appears to have been in an email story that began circulating in See the Urban Legends Reference Pages for more discussion.
If you are out to describe the truth, leave elegance to the tailor. Koestler prefaces it with "My comfort is what Einstein said when somebody reproached him with the suggestion that his formula of gravitation was longer and more cumbersome than Newton's formula in its elegant simplicity". Boltzmann, according to whom matters of elegance ought to be left to the tailor and to the cobbler.
This is similar to a quote attributed to Mark Twain: The earliest published source located attributing the quote to Einstein is the book Career Management for the Creative Person by Lee T. Both quotes appeared on the internet before that: This quote does appear in Einstein's essay "The Fundaments of Physics" which can be found in his book Out of My Later Years , but Einstein does not claim credit for it, instead calling it " Lessing 's fine saying". Time and space are modes by which we think and not conditions in which we live.
Earliest source located that attributes this to Einstein is the book The Nature of Scientific Discovery: But long before that, the book Einstein: Douglas Stone Einstein and the Quantum Wikipedia has an article about: Wikimedia Commons has media related to: Wikisource has original works written by or about: Retrieved from " https: Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted. The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.
But who is the author? If you have access to this book, please let me know. Something tells me there are earlier versions than this, and I doubt this is the reference that popularized it, but due to the copyright fear that grips the internet, I can not get to the top of the page…. People use quotes as a way to strengthen their own position. Over time, the truth gets further and further away. I imagine this is the most disappointing part of time travel, waiting around to witness words never spoken and deeds never done.
Thanks for doing research, and sorry for spreading the lie. I went around the web and posted comments to about 10 blogs that had this quote including blogjet to ask them to change it. I fear the genie is out of the bottle now though. The internet allows truth to be both created and destroyed. Created in rumors and destroyed through research.
The scary thing is that both fact and fiction can live together so peacefully. Librarians constantly run into this… there is a striking quote … somebody tweaks it a little to make it more like what they like, then it is attributed to someone, usually famous, or relevant to what somebody thinks the quote is about. These things unravel all the time once somebody looks for proper attribution. He went to Stone Hill College—check out the top of their computer science page! Hi Ben, How long did this investigation take?
Thanks for the info. Thanks, please help spread the word — I think it will be a neat experiment to see how easily a worldwide misconception can be corrected. I think was the peak of people misquoting Einstein on this particular issue or I could be wrong — its harder to prove that someone never said something than that they did.
If fewer books and websites attribute this to Einstein in then I think there may be hope for the internet yet. The goal is to shrink the number of web results found from 21, I read that the time it takes for ideas to spread is approaching zero — compared to the hundreds of years it used to take for new ideas to travel from places like China to Europe and beyond. I think it's been tried millions of times over the course of history, and, human nature being what it is, it has been proven to be exceedingly difficult.
And in a splendid fashion!
10 Things Einstein Probably Didn’t Say | Know Thy Health
Peter — That is ironic. It seems in this case, that collective wisdom leads most people to believe what they want to believe or perhaps what is convenient to believe. We believe that if we keep looking, that somewhere — amongst the billions of pages, the answer must be there, somewhere. Some people need to search more, others need to search less. Ben, I am having pretty much the same oproblem as you did, trying to cite a quote from Einstein. In the quotable einstein, i cant even find reference to it although countless times i see this quote referenced to Einstein 'Any intellegent fool can make things bigger…… do you know if he really sid that and when???
Try Google Book search…look for earliest version of that quote…someone must have cited the source. Did you try some local libraries to find out if there is a copy of Advances in Instrumentation in your area?

Einstein said a lot of things, but he didn’t say this
Thanks for sharing the information. Thanks for posting this. I just read this quote in an article on the Huffington Post: The behemoths he might have been familiar with were being used to calculate missile trajectories — not even an area a pacifist like Einstein would have sullied himself. Even if the computers of his day were not the size of Walmart, his thinking, which was largely intuitive and visceral, would not have required them. None of his fundamental research was computationally dense, except in symbol manipulation. I found the book. I am using it in a paper. It can be obtained from The University of Michigan.
Here's how I am writing it up for a research paper — and I agree with you. Human beings are incredibly slow, inaccurate, and brilliant. Together they are powerful beyond imagination. There are no references to scholarly articles, books or even speeches proving that Einstein ever said it. A paper industry application of systems engineering and direct digital control.
Now here are five totally real and highly fact-checked Einstein quotes:
Journal of Advances in Instrumentation, V. I don't think that BlogJet is the best to try webs on. I'd rather tell you to try Drupal solutions because they manage sites, either they belong to Rupert Murdoch or to anyone. And of course Einstein never said that… because he wouldn't agree with internet first of all.
The end of the following article attributes the pseudo-Einstein quote to Leo Cherne in ; if accurate, it may be earlier than the Advances in Instrumentation quote — one would have to determine when the authors of the latter article wrote it. Thanks for the info! Much appreciated… I strongly suspected this was NOT a quote of his — as I frequently refer to his sayings. Im glad I didn't have to dig as much as you in order to prove my point to a fellow misquoter.
Thank you for this research. I have forwarded the link on to the creator of iGoogle's 'Einstein Quote of the Day' widget, after seeing this quote on it and wishing to discover the origins. I have the Einstein quotes of the day on my desktop and after reading this one thought that gee I didn't know computers were around at the time Einstein was alive and were FAST. I am glad there are people out there who were smart enough to figure out that Einstein probably didn't say that and have done some actual research.
I thought it was very helpful and also informative as to its possible origin. Computers are extremely fast, accurate and stupid. Human beings are notoriously slow, sloppy and highly intelligent. When the intelligence of humans is coupled with the speed and accuracy of computers, data processing that far outreaches anything in the past becomes possible. Thanks — I think we are getting closer. But somehow I find it hard to believe that these obscure journals were the orginal source and that they all said the same thing with such consistancy.
Came across your blog on the Einstein computer quote while researching another, ascribed to AE without citation numerous times on the net: Thanks for raising the bar, Ben. In addition, you scientists and people who think about the process of creative, innovative discovery often cite the importance of being completely wrong-headed in your thinking in order to muster the confidence to trace an idea to its logical conclusion and stumble on a new discovery. The thought captured in the quote is explored in detail here — http: Instead, search for the quote or part of the quote and see if you can find the real source or earliest reference to it.
Quotes morph over time, usually becoming simpler. Any idea from any scientist in the 20th century will eventually be attributed to Einstein. There are hundreds of books on the nature of science, rationalism, the mind, and creativity that would LOVE a quote like that written before
