Is God real?
“Both religion and science require a belief in God. For believers, God is in the beginning, and for physicists He is at the end of all considerations… To the former He is the foundation, to the latter, the crown of the edifice of every generalized world view.”
–Max Planck, (a Nobel Prize physicist considered to be the founder of quantum theory, and one of the most important physicists of the 20th century).
“I am not an atheist, and I don’t think I can call myself a pantheist [emphasis added]. 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. ”
–Albert Einstein, as quoted in Antony Flew’s book There Is a God: How the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind.
