A slightly longer version of the clip that used to be here.

I know that lots of guys have a navel fixation of sorts, which is what helped lead to the prevalence of navel piercings.  This is getting a bit weird about it, though.

Besides, if you're going to fill a girl's navel with alcohol, it should be something with a much higher alcohol-content, since you aren't going to get much with each shot.

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.
-- Albert Einstein

I don't think that most believers and Christian apologists even go as far as you did, looking into biographies and the more honest-to-misunderstand quotes.

I've read a few apologetics books that essentially list quotes such as "God does not play dice with the universe," and one or two others which are obviously using metaphor, and then they argue from those that Einstein was religious.  You're giving the Christian apologists far more credit for their arguments than they deserve.

You should read what a few of them have to say about biological evolution, arguing that evolution should not be taught as indisputable fact (which it isn't taught as) while it still has so many unanswerable problems that it can't answer.  They then go on to list many things that evolution does answer, which they would know if they had even a level of knowledge that you would get from a 100-level course on the subject.  Carl Gallups recently wrote a book that is particularly stupid, in this respect, as well as many others.

Joseph, I have also had theists try to tell me that Einstein was a believer, which is a misconception that probably stems from Walter Isaacson's biography, and I always reply to these theists by sending them this quotation from Einstein himself, which I found in Hitchens' The Portable Atheist: "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." This always shuts them up but I doubt that it prevents them from continuing to spread the lie. 

Someone once asked Einstein whether he believed in god, and I think that it is unfortunate that he replied "I believe in Spinoza's god," because most kneelers have never even heard of Spinoza and have no idea what his philosophy was about and so they conveniently omit the word "Spinoza's" from the quotation and then swell up in their belief that Einstein was on their side.

Thanks, Joseph. Taking note for the reporting.

I'm not sure.  She could never get a clear picture of it for us.  I don't know if it was one of the easily housebroken breeds or not.

Basically, Claudia is one of those people who only meets the "atheist" requirement of this site by the slimmest of technicalities.  She doesn't believe in an actual god, but she believes in every other sort of spiritualist, new-age, woo-woo bullshit.  "Spirit-guides" are bordering on the edge of what makes for a god, but I guess it technically isn't enough for a case to get her kicked from the site.

She kept posting articles from new-age websites and other spiritualist sources, no matter how many times everyone else on the site kept telling her that she was insane and didn't really belong here.  She finally went away, though.

By the way, if you see a theist infiltrating the site, you can and should report them, and the admins will take care of the issue.  It happens, from time to time.

The last one I encountered was something like 5 or 6 months ago, I think.  Some mook posted a video to one of the groups, which scrolled though a series of scientists from the past several hundred years who were believers in a god ... which was particularly funny, since several of them weren't theists, such as Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

The guy claimed that he was just posting the video since he thought it was an interesting argument, which just goes to show how irrational he thought we were.  An anecdotal attempt at an argument from authority is not an interesting argument, particularly since scientists are vastly less religious than the general population, if you actually take a statistical sampling.  Cherry-picking Francis Collins to make an argument that scientists support your religious beliefs is dishonest in the extreme.

After repeated questioning, the guy finally admitted to me that he thought that the people in the video might be right.  Thanks for the honesty, guy, but bye bye.  *report*  Heh.
