Weekend Video: Does God Exist Campaign

October 3, 2010

This is a video of the ad campaign being run by Republic of Macedonia to bring religion back to schools. First thing I would like to point out that Einstein never said those words; the story is a complete fiction which has been spreading across the internet since 2004. It’s very much possible that you might have got a forwarded mail describing this story about how little Einstein humbled his atheist teacher in the discussion about existence of God. Secondly, I am not exactly sure if the logic to prove existence of God , shown in this video works. It can be also argued that only Evil exists in the world and God is non-existent. If we see something good that’s because of non-existence of Evil. Thirdly the video also shows typical stereotyping of atheist as a pure evil and mean person who will go as far as spreading his beliefs to innocent children in school. And whenever a genius with religious belief is required, poor Einstein gets thrown in to the mix somehow. Einstein has been misquoted on various other occasions as well such as

“Science without religion is lame, and religion without science is blind” which is correct quote but incomplete. He clarifies , “It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.”

Lastly, I believe that religious belief should be a personal thing and should be practiced at a personal level and it should not be imposed upon anyone, especially children. Likewise atheist should not try to impose their ideas on anyone. Anyways, I do not want to get started on any religious discussion here, but found the video interesting so thought of posting it. It would be interesting to hear back from you guys.
