Why did Albert Einstein commit suicide?

it is believed that Albert Einstein went crazy with the vass amount of knowledge he held in his brain. The human brain can only handle so much. If the brain obtains too much then the brain would just collapse not able to take in the amount of pressure and knowledge. It is said that Albert Einstein had gone mad because of how much he knew. As said before the human brain can only handle so much. He had wild hallucinations and could not handle reality. He was slowly losing grip on reality. Some stories say that Albert Einstein's wife had died and this drove the already mad Albert to kill himself. Some say that is the story, others say he died of internal bleeding, some say what they want. But to the greatest fact of knowledge I seek i believe that Albert Einstein was a great man. Yes, he was a mad genious but in my eyes he was just a man that had too much too handle. That was Albert Einstein. signed, an 11 year old

Was albert Einstein a atheist?

It's a little unclear if Albert Einstein was an atheist. He certainly did not believe in a personal god or and of the widely held existing religions, such as the Biblical god of Abraham, or Buddha or the Hindu gods. He called himself an agnostic but appears to have believed in Pantheism or Spinozism which (i guess) is the belief that the universe itself is god. If that explanation of Pantheism is wrong I won't be surprised since I can't relate to the concept.

Did Albert Einstein convert to Islam?

Obviously not. It is not mentioned anywhere that Albert Einstein was a Muslim. Einstein was born into a Jewish family. Around the time Einstein was eleven years old he went through an intense religious phase, during which time he followed Jewish religious precepts in detail, including abstaining from eating pork. During this time he composed several songs in honour of God. But during most of his life Einstein was not a practicing Jew. One of Einstein's most famous quotes on the subject of science and religion is: "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." Einstein is said to have held a concept of God similar to that promulgated by Jewish philosopher Baruch Spinoza. It has been reported by some Christian Science sources that Einstein attended Christian Science services in New York and that Einstein said that Mary Baker Eddy was right in her theories about an essentially non-physical universe.
