Einstein once said that “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” Why this specific distinction? I wonder what indispensable super-knowledge a religion needs from science (still remaining a religion)? What is it that religion needs to see more than its own theological truth, and where do the feet of religion help scientific knowledge arrive to (still remaining scientific)? Even Einstein can say nonsense.

Now I read in an announcement that he declared in a letter a year before he died: “The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish.” Not a surprising statement for a person who obviously never understood a thing about faith.
