That is as I understand it, Buck. There is a story going around in his name that is bogus according to Snopes.

Moving forward on the subject to Baruch Spinoza and again
another snippet from a larger page.
Spinoza's metaphysics consists of one thing, substance, and its modifications (modes). Early in The Ethics Spinoza argues that there is only one substance, which is absolutely infinite, self-caused, and eternal. From this substance, however, follow an infinite number of attributes (the intellect perceiving an abstract concept or essence) and modes (things actually existing which follow from attributes and modes). He calls this substance "God", or "Nature". In fact, he takes these two terms to be synonymous (in the Latin the phrase he uses is "Deus sive Natura"), but readers often disregard his neutral monism. During his time, this statement was seen as literally equating the existing world with God - which is why he was accused of atheism. For Spinoza the whole of the natural universe is made of one substance, God, or, what's the same, Nature, and its modifications (modes). \:D/ \:D/

Now that should rattle the barnacles in the brain. :heeheehee :heeheehee :heeheehee

My apologies go to the person who wrote that magnificent article, which appears to be wrongly attributed to Albert Einstein, for whoever that person was or is, knows a personal God to whom he or she, will introduce others to know Him also, because unless we know someone personally, it is not possible to introduce them to another.

I think it was Arthur Einstein who wrote "God vs. Science" .... a common mistake.

If you do not know the story about the student and the professor then have a look here to bring you up to date:

http://yes-23.com/other/albert-einstein-god-vs-science/

It has been suggested that Albert Einstein was the student but that has not been verified.
See also DW's SCOPES reference.

Of course it wasn't Einstein. For a start, he was Jewish, not Christian.
Second, did he ever study philosophy at university in Switzerland?
His passion was mathematics and physics.

IMO this story about the student and the atheist professor is Christian propaganda and is most likely to be totally bogus, as in made up in America.

I imagine the student eventually replaced the professor. :twocents-mytwocents:

:angry: Aaarrrgh!

:character-oldtimer: It's all imagination. Made up. Fiction. Story telling.
There was no professor, no student. And it certainly wasn't Albert Einstein !!!!!
