Einstein and God

There was a great article in Time magazine about Einstein and God last week.

Einstein is cited by theists because he believed in God, though in his time, he was denounced by organized religion because Einstien himself refused to believe in any God that "meddles" in human affairs.

He seems to articulate my own view pretty well. That humility requires us to be awed and wonderfilled at the possibility that something greater exists.

He also shares my basic view that the world is deterministic and that free will is an illusion, or actually a useful delusion on which human ethics is based on, but like other mathematical abstractions like gausian surfaces or magnetic lines of force, not really there.
