Albert Einstein Said What?
It seems to me that Albert Einstein gets a lot of credit for a lot of good things he did in the world. Especially the science world. But I have believed for a long time that the world of science and religion should really go hand in hand. And why not? So much of the beauty in the world can be explained through science. It just makes sense. Albert Einstein also said something quite ingenious about miracles too.
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Einstein said this, although it is attributed to him with no source, it goes without needing documentation if you think about it. When you look at a wonderful rainbow in the sky, do you need the scientific data that explains the way the colors are produced by light being bent through a water droplet and reflected upon its exit? Or is it enough to look upon the varied and blurred lines of color and be mystified at its existence?
I don’t believe in coincidences anymore. I used to be able to explain happenings away by thinking it was just a random occurrence. But too many events have lined up in my life for me not to believe that there is a specific order and meaning behind what has happened for me to not believe in the miraculous touch of God at work. In the Bible we are told, “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows” Matthew 10:29-31. If even the hairs on my head are numbered, then surely so many other things are accounted for by my Father’s intentions for me.
Albert Einstein was a genius, by all definitions of the word and the world. He spent his life researching theories of light, investigating space, time, matter, and energy. If he was smart enough to understand protons, atoms, and how light, space and time move together to affect relativity, I’m gonna hang my hat on the idea that he was smart enough to think miracles happened too.
