so says the head line at news.ninemsn.com. Over the years many people have tried to misconstrue Einstein’s words  and insinuate he believed in God.

Sceptics call (Catholic) World Youth Day just one big party; others insist it strengthens the faith, writes Linda Morris. I call it a waste of taxpayers money! More on this tomorrow – I spent way too long writing a reply on Matt’s blog I ran out of time to finish my own!     Technorati [...]
