Einstein quote: your thoughts?

Question by CAustin: Einstein quote: your thoughts?
“The finest emotion of which we are capable is the mystic emotion. Herein lies the germ of all art and all true science. Anyone to whom this feeling is alien, who is no longer capable of wonderment and lives in a state of fear is a dead man. To know that what is impenatrable for us really exists and manifests itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, whose gross forms alone are intelligible to our poor faculties – this knowledge, this feeling … that is the core of the true religious sentiment. In this sense, and in this sense alone, I rank myself amoung profoundly religious men.”

-Albert Einstein, “What I Believe,” 1930.

Here Einstein parallels the awe and wonder experienced by a scientist sampling a raw, unknown phenomenon to a religious experience.
