Daily Inspirational Message for January 14, 2014


The universe is not only queerer than we suppose; it is queerer than we can suppose.
J.B.S. Haldane

I’ve been watching some Facebook friends who are engaging in a heated debate regarding their spiritual beliefs. One is an atheist who thinks that anyone who isn’t an atheist is an ignorant fool; the other is a devoted Christian who is sure that Christianity is the world’s only hope of salvation. I recently came across a story about Albert Einstein’s spiritual views, and I’m with him. Einstein “called himself an agnostic, while disassociating himself from the label atheist, preferring, he said, ‘an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being.'”Anyone who is sure their spiritual views are the one and only answer is surely overestimating their understanding, for when it comes to the nature of reality, none of us knows anything for sure.
