What would Einstein say about intelligent design? In the words of Daniel Bryan, “Yes! Yes! Yes!”

“In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views.”

“I’m not an atheist and I don’t think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangements of the books, but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.”

I respect for Hawking’s intellect but am disappointed by his hubris (a GRE word for over-weaning pride).  But Einstein, my favorite scientist of all time, was brilliant and humble at the same time.  His own words overturn the ignorant and arrogant view that it is unscientific to acknowledge the possibility that a higher being created the world and galaxies we see every day and every night – mind you he was raised as an atheist and did not believe in a personal God.
