Did Einstein believe in aliens?
That's a good question. I can't find any direct statements about whether he did or not, but I did find a reference to him favoring visual communication over the radio-based SETI communication that we currently have (in the 1920s, and apparently back then it wasn't possible to focus radio transmitters on a distant planet), so it is likely that he thought it possible.

Answer #1: The possibility that aliens from other planet exist is notimpossible. Compared to what there is to know, humans practically know nothing. I say that there is a poss…ibility. Did you know, i know this cannot be confirmed, that the governments hid from the world that there isreally aliens. Maybe we are the aliens and we just don't know it. Justbecause we can't live on another planet doesn't mean that other creaturescan't. For all that you know we live in earth and the animals are thealiens. Well think about it, they live and look differently, they don't speaklike we do or anything like that. But always remember that "Those who don'tbelieve, no proof is enough and for those who believe no evidence is needed."Believe what you want to believe not what other people tell you to believe.Just because Catholics believe in Jesus doesn't mean you have tobelieve. (This last sentence doesn't even make sense, if you don't believe inJesus how could someone be called a Catholic.) have u seen monsters vs aliens??????(nothing to do with real lifejust a fictional story use fact to support answers not movies.) Even if your Catholic you can believe in aliens one of therepresentatives from the Vatican said we can. It is not against the religion. Alsoaliens are things not from this planet or commonly found on this planet sohere on Earth humans and animals can not in any sense be considered aliens. They may exist, they may even be around here. But I will believe inone when I kick one in the ankle. hi im Aisha.. i belive in Aliens because i saw one and this ain't no joke ortrick,no one belives me but i know i saw one please email me if you want to ask questions about them...i never esackly saw them.but i saw thembelive me or not its up to you i have proof go onwww.youtube.com/watch?v=JBSo- yB-P74&feature=related i love ant and dec!!!!!!!!! from aisha email:firstname.lastname@example.org ===== Answer #2: What anyone does or doesn't believe is irrelevant. There is a significant probability of the existence of intelligent, technological, civilized life elsewhere in the universe, besidesEarth. We have not observed any evidence of its existence. That's a pretty boring statement. It certainly doesn't stand upagainst "they're among us" and "I saw one", and "the government knows and is hiding the truth" and "if you can just believe then you won'tneed no stinkin evidence". yes, search up area51
On whether he considered himself religious: "Yes, you couldcall it that. Try and penetrate with our limited means the secretsof nature and you will find that, behind all the …discernible lawsand connections, there remains something subtle, intangible andinexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything we cancomprehend is my religion." On the nature of God : "That deeply emotional conviction of apresence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in theincomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God." On whether science leads to religion : "Every one who isseriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced thata spirit is manifest in the laws of nature--a spirit vastlysuperior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with ourmodest powers must feel humble. In this way the pursuit of scienceleads to a religious feeling of a special sort." On how religion motivates scientific inquiry : "The cosmicreligious feeling is the strongest and noblest motive forscientific research." On whether science and religion are at odds: "The situationmay be expressed by an image: science without religion is lame,religion without science is blind." On how he feels about atheist efforts to claim him as anally : "There are people who say there is no God, but what makesme really angry is that they quote me for support of such views." On how he regards atheists : "The fanatical atheists...arecreatures who cannot her the music of the spheres. I do not sharethe crusading spirit of the professional atheist. What separates mefrom most so-called atheists is a feeling of utter humility towardthe unattainable secrets of the harmony of the cosmos." Answer: Ayear before his death Einstein wrote (full letter at link): "The word God is for me nothing more than the expression andproduct of human weakness, the Bible a collection of honorable, butstill purely primitive, legends which are nevertheless prettychildish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me)change this." Answer: Albert Einstein had an interesting belief in God. In aletter written in 1954, he are his thoughts on the subject(courtesy of Wikipedia): ...] The word God is for me nothing more than the expression andproduct of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable,but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish.No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this.These [...] interpretations are highly manifold according to theirnature and have almost nothing to do with the original text. For methe Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation ofthe most childish superstitions. And the Jewish people to whom Igladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity haveno different quality for me than all other people. As far as myexperience goes, they are also no better than other human groups,although they are protected from the worst cancers by a lack ofpower. Otherwise I cannot see anything 'chosen' about them. Essentially, what Einstein was saying is that the word "God" ismeaningless, and silly because he believed in somewhat cosmicenergy that existed in nature, and because of this, the word "God"is basically saying that we are ruled over by someone because weare weaker. He believed the tales of the Bible, such as the worldbeing created in 7 days and the Tower of Babel, were honorablestories, but false, and the original texts of the Bible were meantto guide one on the path of morality. He also said that he is proudto be a Jew, but does not see them superior to any otherperson. To put it simply, yes, Einstein did believe in a "God", but not agod with a long white beard who lived in the cloud, but as auniversal energy that we are all apart of, like myself. By The wayI Think The Word God is meaningless Like Einstein Said.
Albert Einstein, who was born in Ulm Germany, lived in or around Princeton, New Jersey while he was working at the Institute of advanced studies in Princeton.
Albert Einstein is on record as saying that he ceased to believe in God when he was twelve.
He was born Jewish and raised Jewish. He believed in God, but he wasn't necessarily Jewish.
Everybody's life has some events in it which simply cannot be explained. We are not omniscient, so some things will happen that we have no way of understanding. In the past …when something inexplicable happened people would say it was the work of the fairies, or the goblins, or the kobolds, or the elves. These days people are wiser: they no longer believe in elves, brownies, or leprechauns. So they say that these things are caused by aliens.
Much like any other human being, Albert Einstein believed many things about many subjects. If you wish to enquire into his beliefs, you should ask something more specific.
The smarter class of people require solid proof before believing anything far out.
I understand that he did not believe in God/Jesus even thought he was Jewish. I do not recall reading anything about is beliefs on evolution. Does someone have the answer to t…his question? Thanks
I believe aliens might exist somewhere in the universe, but I don't believe any stories about UFOs or abductions or crop circles or anything like that. ----------------------…---------------------- A good answer. I don't *believe* in aliens because I have seen no proof of them, and belief without proof is faith (religion) not science.
Einstein was essentially a Deist. He believed in a supreme intelligence of design behind the Universe, and on a question of subatomic physics, he once responded that "God does… not play dice with the universe" (though he was later proven wrong in that regard). On the "personal God" level, however, he was a nonbeliever.
Dr. Reynolds asked Einstein if he believed in ghosts. Einstein confessed he had never seen one, and added, "When twelve other persons have witnessed the same phenomenon at the… same time, then I might believe." From: Charlie Chaplin, My Autobiography , Simon and Schuster: New York, NY (1964), page 321:
Yes, In fact he was actually an alien life form, sent to help us.
No, Albert Einstein was a professed atheist until the day he died.
