Arguably the smartest scientist to ever live, shares his views on religion.

very interesting reading.. i do however feel compelled to point out that my experience in life is that people are extremely smart/genius in one area are rarely so gifted in general knowledge and common sense.  just because someone is a brilliant physicist doesn't mean he's going to be a brilliant psychoanalyst, etc.

I saw a documentary a few weeks ago which included commentary on how Einstein, in spite of his wonderful insight, struggled in the second half of his life to reach a similar breakthrough in the thinking about the comprehensive coming together of the main physical science theories.  This documentary had a brief layman's explanation of relativity which helped me to understand it better.

His religious insights are interesting as a brain like that would not be satisfied with cliches about religious experience IMO.
