Einstein’s Belief In Intelligent Design

97% of progressives would ridicule Einstein now.

The scientists’ religious feeling takes the form of a rapturous amazement at the harmony of natural law, which reveals an intelligence of such superiority that, compared with it, all the systematic thinking and acting of human beings is an utterly insignificant reflection.

- Albert Einstein

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.

- Albert Einstein

    Classic quotes. I’ll bet the likes of Mann and Hansen wouldn’t even give them a moments notice.

    That humans are incapable of explaining so many things speaks volumes about the naivety and hubris of many.

  2. Traitor In Chief says:

    It’s a deep state of emotional illness mixed with self loathing, guilt, and every form of corruption. It’s essentially a band of Gollums in the real world.

  3. And consider, too, how our AGW friends love to equate Intelligent Design with creationism, where as near as I can tell, the two are not even remotely comparable.

  4. So were the brains of “climate scientists” a result of intelligent design, or the product of evolution?

    • Dave N says:

      Good point.

      Since the Designers work isn’t perfect (depending I guess on one’s definition), He must have a sense of humour.

      It’s rather like a game in this universe: start with some (relatively) basic rules, set it in motion and see what happens. In the case of alarmists, I rather expect they’ll sooner or later draw the “Go To Jail” card (metaphorically or literally).

        So you’re a Deist. So were many of the Founders.

      • methylamine says:

        I’ve been on both sides of this; strongly Christian, to committed Atheist.
        I’ve had to admit to myself–we know nearly nothing about how the Universe really works; taking an absolute stance for or against a designed universe is foolish. We just don’t know enough.

        And I’m trending toward “designed”. It’s just too damned organized and intricate to be pure accident.

      • Ben says:

        Proverbs 25:2 (The Message)
        God delights in concealing things;
        scientists delight in discovering things.

  5. Superb – and it applies equally to the Labour Party here in the UK.

  6. Eric Simpson says:

    I tend to sympathize with scientists who understand that we don’t know everything, and that in fact as far as the big question… we don’t know anything, and that is why are we here? And why is anything here? Basically this precludes an atheist position. And the idea of Intelligent Design dates back centuries, it is argued that a designer’s fine handiwork is evidenced in the exquisite details of nature, though modern scientists do claim that the Intelligent Design argument is superficially attractive but ultimately specious and debunkable. I don’t know the answer. But Russell has a major point that Creationism and Intelligent Design are different things altogether. Nevertheless, I tend to think it is a bad idea to broach religious topics on a science blog, especially when a key but bogus argument the warmists make to discredit skeptics is that we are largely driven by religious belief. A good and touching point about Einstein is made here. But it shouldn’t take an Einstein to realize that we ought to keep science and religion far apart particularly in this case as there is no way that we win brownie points by doing that. In fact we lose points, there’s no other way of scoring it.

    • Robert Austin says:

      Intelligent design seems to evoke the infinite regression question of what designed the intelligent designer. Another point to consider is that evolution is not incompatible with intelligent design. The intelligent designer simply designed a system that evolves. The intelligent designer presumably created a set of universal physical laws that produced the universe that we observe. So why can we not just dispense with the intelligent designer explanation and say that we just don’t know the answer and possibly due to our life form limitations, we may never know?

  7. I think where people get wary is when the creationists present themselves as “intelligent designers” as a toe hold into espousing their own dogmas. Intelligent design is the official position of the Catholic Church, for example. If you’re not an atheist or at least agnostic, then you’ve got to be at least in the intelligent design camp.

    • Lou says:

      I’ve found hard core evolutionists to be in the same camp as hard core warmists. I could care less if ETs played a role in creating us. The truth is that we don’t really know everything no matter how hard or how much work we put into it. I’ve often joked that ETs are gods (see Genesis 6:2 or whatever about sons of god mating with daughters of earth). Of course, hard core religious people did not like that.

  8. Robertv says:

    It applies equally to All Parties. Nearly all politicians are infected by this disease left or right, bleu or red or whatever color. They don’t represent the people, they live in another world and we are not invited.

  9. My epochal (unprecedented, world-encompassing and revolutionary) discovery and scientific verification–of the single objective origin of all the so-called “ancient mysteries” of man–is the open door to the next paradigm, of specific, real design(s) of the natural world, the last mere thousands of years before the beginning of recorded human history (just as my Venus/Earth temperatures comparison and physical explanation definitively opens the door to the necessary correction of climate science now). See my blog, for example,
