Question by grassfell: Why do people need to quote Einstein to prove whether he believed in God or not? What about this quote?
We could say that although Buddhism in not entirely scientific, but it certainly has a strong overtone and is certainly more scientific than any other religion. It is significant that Albert Einstein, the greatest scientist of the twentieth century said of Buddhism:
“The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend a personal God and avoid dogmas and theology. Covering both natural and spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual and a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description. If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs, it would be Buddhism.”

Great point dude. Let’s see what the dumb ‘argument-from-authority’ brigade say about it.
EDIT: Mastermind, I’ve never bothered to quote a specific evolutionary scientist. And if I did, I’d base it on the fact that numerous scientific discoveries have shown evolution to be correct; that is, base it on their evidence rather than their opinions. Lastly, I won’t bother to purposefully misquote someone just to try and give some non-existent credence to anything. That answer your question? ^_^
