Einstein Died 55 Years Ago

Albert Einstein, the genius physicist whose theories changed our ideas of how the universe works, died 55 years ago, on April 18, 1955, of heart failure. He was 76.
People always argue about Einstein's views on religion, spirituality, and God.  His thoughts are so seemingly contradictory that, over the years, he's been held up as everything from a paragon of outright atheism to a model of progressive Judaism (despite writing that "the Jewish religion like all others is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions"). Perhaps the single most revealing quote of Einstein's on the topic is this: "I believe in [Dutch philosopher Baruch de] Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with fates and actions of human beings."
Thank you Einstein. Science will forever be in your debt.  The image above is from Life magazine.
