Question by usaforklift: Why do people often feel believing in something you can’t see is unscientific, foolish or stupid?
Albert Einstein: The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind. Before God we are all equally wise – and equally foolish. At any rate, I am convinced that He [God] does not play dice. We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality. Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind. The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted. Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen. Imagination is more important than knowledge … It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education. As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality. Albert Einstein, “Geometry and Experience”, January 27, 1921. If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts. The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them. Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former. Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
