“I’m not an atheist. I don’t think I can call myself a pantheist. The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. 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 arrangement 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. We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws.”
—Albert Einstein, in “Relativity: The Special and General Theory”


Albert Einstein was a physicist best known for his theory of relativity. He won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for his discovery of the photoelectric effect and other contributions to theoretical physics.

Einstein’s work in relativity pointed out limitations in Isaac Newton’s classical mechanics and contributed to the rise of quantum physics. It led to astronomical discoveries including black holes, neutron stars, and gravitational waves.
