Albert Einstein 1879-1955


Now, even though the realms of religion and science in themselves are clearly marked off from each other, nevertheless there exist between the two strong reciprocal relationships and dependencies.

Though religion may be that which determines the goal, it has, nevertheless, learned from science, in the broadest sense, what means will contribute to the attainment of the goals it has set up. But science can only be created by those who are thoroughly imbued with the aspiration toward truth and understanding. This source of feeling, however, springs from the sphere of religion.

To this there also belongs the faith in the possibility that the regulations valid for the world of existence are rational, that is, comprehensible to reason.

I cannot conceive of a genuine scientist without that profound faith.

The situation may be expressed by an image:
science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.

Albert Einstein

Compare with the message from A. Ford sitting:

There is one thing that will distinguish both science and religion tomorrow - and has already been sounded by men like Mr. Moon and others - that is that everything physical and spiritual is a manifestation of the creative spiritual worship of God - and apart from that there is nothing.
