Einstein and God’s Thoughts

Arguably the most famous and influential scientist and thinker of the modern era, Albert Einstein’s career dismantled traditional views held by his peers regarding man and the universe. Among them of course are his Theories of General and Special Relativity. In 1921 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for his assertion that light consisted not merely of waves but rather discrete particles or quanta.

His lasting quest however was to discover a principle or set of rules that would cast aside the uncertainty inherent in Quantum Mechanics, the body of knowledge which his Nobel Prize winning paper had given birth to. In describing this quest for insight, he famously remarked:

“I am not interested in this phenomenon or that phenomenon,” Einstein had said earlier in his life. “I want to know God’s thoughts – the rest are mere details.”

The prophet Jeremiah reveals his thoughts on God’s thoughts as follows in Jeremiah chapter 29 verse 11 (King James verbiage follows but there are many translations to choose from.):

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, and author of the Christian Science textbook describes God’s thoughts as follows on page 286 of the textbook, verse 21-22:

God’s thoughts are perfect and eternal, are substance and Life.
