Furthermore, the ten most renowned scientists all believe in God. This article here introduces six renowned modern scientists who believe in God, as well as their statements regarding spirituality and faith.
Albert Einstein wrote:
"I am not an atheist. I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. The problems involved are too broad for our limited thinking."
"We are like a child entering a huge library full of multilingual books. The children know that someone must have written these books, but he doesn't know how to write them. He doesn't understand the language used to write these books."
"Children vaguely suspect that there is a mysterious order in these books, but they don't know what it is. In my opinion, even the most intelligent human beings can only understand God in such a way. We see the universe so amazingly organized, ordered, and follow certain rules, but only very vaguely understand these rules."
- Quoted from Albert Einstein's "Relativity: The Special and General Theory"
“尝试用我们有限的手段参透自然的奥秘，你会发现，在所有明显的关联背后，存在着某种微妙的、无形的、无可名状的东西。对这种超越了可理解事物的力量的敬畏就是我的宗教。在这个意义上，我其实是有宗教信仰的。”——阿尔伯特‧爱因斯坦在1927年的一次晚宴上回应德国评论家、无神论者克尔（Alfred Kerr），引自H‧G‧凯斯勒（ H.G.Kessler）1971年所编《大都会日记》（The Diary of a Cosmopolitan）
"Trying to use our limited means to understand the mysteries of nature, you will find that behind all the obvious connections, there is something subtle, invisible, and indescribable. My awe for this power that transcends the understandable things is my religion. In this sense, I actually have religious beliefs."
