“I want to know God’s thoughts… the rest are details.” Albert Einstein
Like his predecessors, Galileo and Newton, Einstein was probably in the fact that a higher power created the universe and maintained. Unlike them, however, his views are not Bible based. In fact, though he faithfully read the Bible throughout his life he did not accept the miraculous events described therein, but very committed to its moral precepts. At the age of fifty, he wrote to his former religious teacher that: “I often read the Bible, but the original text has remained elusive for me.”
But Einstein kept God at the center of its research activities throughout his life. He shares this passion during one day with a young physics student, “I am not a family man. I want my peace. ” I want to know how God created this world. I’m not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know his thoughts, the rest is detail. ”
As the theory of relativity is being considered in America, some wrong to conclude that Einstein was an atheist. Rabbi Herbert Goldstein of New York cabled him and asked him whether or not he believed in God. Einstein cabled back: “I believe in Spinoza’s God who reveals himself in the harmony of the whole being, not a God who cares about the fate and actions of men.”
This statement of Einstein himself summarizes the essence of Einstein’s belief in the divinity, but he has been misunderstood by some as meaning that God Einstein is simply a synonym for “… an orderly system obeying rules … ” is a God who is the universe and manifests itself in her, rather than an intelligent mind who created the universe and whose brightness could be inferred by the complexity and the laws therein as Einstein seems to imply.
On Einstein’s view of gravitation, the earth moves in an elliptical path around the sun, not because a force is acting on it, but because the world of space-time is so disturbed by the presence of the sun that the path of least time through space is the elliptical path observed. There is therefore no need to introduce any idea of “force” of gravitation.
The more matter is present, the more space is curved. And so it happens that the light from a star just behind the sun will come bending round it, like a train round a railway curve, and fall upon our eyes or cameras–that is, when the sun’s glare is shut out during an eclipse–and we can see or photograph the star. It will appear to be shifted from its true position–how far shifted, Einstein has worked out. At the last eclipse the stars appeared where he had predicted.
