Do you agree than Albert Einstein was basically an atheist? There seem to be rumors that he was not, after all, he did use the word "God" on many occasions. However, I am pretty sure that his "God" was a synonym for Nature. Here is what Einstein had to say: "From the viewpoint of a Jesuit priest I am, of course, and have always been an atheist... I have repeatedly said that in my opinion the idea of a personal God is a childlike one."
