It is often said that Einstein was a religious man because he often spoke of his reverence for nature in religious terms. Let's set the record straight. This is a direct quote by Einstein concerning his personal beliefs taken from "The Human Side" Ed. Dukas, Hoffman.
"It was of course a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal god and I have never denied this, but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious, then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it"
