That is not an Einstein quote.

+Matt Cohen Agree. There are hundreds of quotes wrongly attributed to AE.

He did not believe in god, and this site will muddle our understanding of what he actually thought, because so much of it is plainly bogus.

Einstein was agnostic/atheist. He never said anything along these lines.

Sometimes God is as subtle as a Mack truck t/boning you in an intersection

It is an actual Einstein quote. When asked what he meant by it he said "Nature hides her secret because of her essential loftiness, but not by means of ruse." His use of "God" in this quote is the same use that he used in the quote "God does not play dice"

yes, it's einstein's as he believed in Spinoza's pantheism, the deification of the universe.. but one ca say that he tender to believe in some power holding the parts of the universe together above that of the natural laws..

If GOD is for US; then WHO can be against US?
WHY GOD CAN OF COURSE! For WE are TIMED!
GOD EITHER BE NOTHING MORE THAN THE ETERNAL (from which we are exempt) AND NOT TWO OR THREE; or nothing more than an abstract thought that dies along with the last of us when no longer observers left keeping this debate alive which will come to it's end no other way...?
U = Pragmatic Competence; not "US" that = Pragmatic Competence
As all language is assumption based, there is no such thing as 100% Pragmatic Competence between any two participants in a discussion.
What other word could Einstein use in it's place when trying to find a common ground with those who consider themselves people of "faith"?
And I can't help but feel, even Jesus, IN HIS OWN THOU ARTFUL DODGER WAY, was trying to accomplish the same effect as Einstein and Spinoza...?
And it's quite clear to me why they all failed in accomplishing their intent?
Just look at how many "climate change deniers" we still have with us today!
Worldview shapes morality; but it's intent that determines the reality.
