What Scientists say and think about God? – You’ll be surprised

For Big questions, we also need great minds.

As we started our journey from the article, “How many times have we asked ourselves about the origin of creation“.

We continue and search thoughts expressed by the greatest scientists in our history. Nothing about theologians.

OK! Is there a “Creator” or a “Great Intelligence”?

An atheist says: “We can’t proof it by science, and we can’t see anything. Then God doesn’t exist.” Agnostics, on the other hand, claim that the existence of any deity is unknown or unknowable.

Adventure with the science guys

  • Galileo Galilei (1564 – 1642)
  • Charles Darwin (1809 – 1882)
  • Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955)
  • Michio Kaku (1947 – present)
  • Dr. Francis Collins (1950 – present)
  • Bill Nye (1955 – present)
  • Neil DeGrasse Tyson (1958 – present)

Galileo Galilei – “That great book”

Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe. Philosophy is written in that great book which ever lies before our eyes — I mean the universe — but we cannot understand it if we do not first learn the language and grasp the symbols, in which it is written. This book is written in the mathematical language, and the symbols are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without whose help it is impossible to comprehend a single word of it; without which one wanders in vain through a dark labyrinth.

Galileo Galilei in “The Assayer” (1623), as translated by Thomas Salusbury (1661), p. 178, as quoted in The Metaphysical Foundations of Modern Science (2003) by Edwin Arthur Burtt, p. 75

Charles Darwin – “I have never been an atheist”

Charles Darwin (1809-1882) in his last years, as he wrote in a letter (1879) to John Fordyce:

[My] judgment often fluctuates…. Whether a man deserves to be called a theist depends on the definition of the term … In my most extreme fluctuations I have never been an atheist in the sense of denying the existence of a God. — I think that generally (and more and more so as I grow older), but not always, — that an agnostic would be the most correct description of my state of mind.

Letter to John Fordyce (link)

Albert Einstein – “A superior mind”

It’s interesting because a scientist see Nature and Universe by a completely different way rather than a usual man. A great scientist spend his lifetime looking for the deepest laws and rules in our cosmos.

Scientific research can reduce superstition by encouraging people to think and view things in terms of cause and effect. Certain it is that a conviction, akin to religious feeling, of the rationality and intelligibility of the world lies behind all scientific work of a higher order. […] This firm belief, a belief bound up with a deep feeling, in a superior mind that reveals itself in the world of experience, represents my conception of God. In common parlance this may be described as “pantheistic” (Spinoza).

A.Einstein, in answers he gave to the Japanese magazine “Kaizō” in 1923.

Albert Einstein had a special and personal concept of God, influenced also by Spinoza (1632-1677, philosopher).

Dr. Michio Kaku – “Is God a Mathematician?”

The mind of God we believe is cosmic music, the music of strings resonating through 11 dimensional hyperspace. That is the mind of God.

Dr. Francis Collins – “A different set of questions”

Some scientists see religion as a threat to the scientific method that should be resisted. But faith “is really asking a different set of questions.”

— says Collins

Dr. Francis Collins has served as the director of the National Institutes of Health since August 2009. He is the former director of the National Human Genome Research Institute, where he led the successful effort to complete the Human Genome Project—which mapped and sequenced all the human DNA and determined aspects of its function. The project built the foundation upon which subsequent genetic research is being performed. He is a member of the Institute of Medicine and the National Academy of Sciences. In 2007 Collins received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honour, and in 2009 Pope Benedict XVI appointed him to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.

Collins has also published several books about the intersection of science and faith, including the New York Times bestseller “The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief.”

Why its so hard for scientists to believe in god

Bill Nye – “We are actually Agnostic”

Neil DeGrass Tyson – “Atheist or Agnostic?”

One of the most famous and contemporary agnostic scientists is Neil DeGrasse Tyson (Astrophysicist).

Final thoughts

As final thoughts, it’s not a matter of only scientific research. Because our ability and position to answers some ambitious questions are faraway our prediction. I can’t imagine when we could be able to find out and solve such mysteries. One thousand years? Two thousands? One Hundred thousands?

Excluding our extinction by ourselves, of course…

We can give one conclusion. There is a higher order, a predictable design. There are signs that every phenomenon is following a specific, designed rule that connects everything.
We can also see that this is the result of an intelligence somehow.

I’d like to leave you with an interesting piece from an interview with Martin Rees, a famous cosmologist. In this interview, he shares his thoughts about the Nature Laws.

This post will be updated with new sources and researches!

Feel free to share your knowledge and sources to make a constructive conversation.

What people think about God Existence?

I was looking a little bit around to find what people think about our creation, our existence and God.

I started from social media such as Quora, Twitter, Reddit and others.

Time by time I’ll update with more authors and interesting articles.

On this blog, personal names will not be mentioned (not public figures). But I’ll always put any kind of source in the articles. So anyone can look by himself and help in finding new useful informations.

Does God exist?


The first answer I found is decisive and short. He says that God doesn’t exist. It’s just a matter of beliefs and imagination.

[…] God doesn’t exist in reality, but exists in the minds of believers as an unknown, fuzzy concept that is crystal clear.


Another answer is:

[…] There is not sufficient evidence to warrant belief in a god or gods. In as much as he “exists” he is a creation of scientifically ignorant iron age tribesman in a bid to explain observed phenomena and to promote and spread their control and power.


A more complex and deep answer comes from a person that defines himself a “deist”:

I do not view God as some immortal human, Big Sky Daddy type. That concept comes from theistic, religious mythology. Instead, I think of God as some type of eternal, transcendent, force of nature with a divine intelligence. […]


Another guy tried himself to conduct research.

He says that he never ended with a definitive answer, but he stopped with a conclusion:

All the knowledge that we have got in all the books in the world is not enough to explain all the phenomena happening in a little garden in our backyard. it’s funny that we are dictating things about God and existence based on this knowledge.

In simple words—we don’t simply know enough, not even close to enough, to say anything for certain.



I find the next answer funny and creative. The writer is enough smart to imagine how much we’re small and that we’re not the centre of the universe.

Absolutely. If god is real then he’s got thousands of other galaxies and potentially millions of other civilizations as well as ours and I doubt he’d play much of any role in any of them.


A Taoist person answer:

I’m a Taoist. We believe in a God but we also think that this omnipotent being has much more important matters to attend to rather than answering our specific prayers like many other religions so we instead pray for our own self improvement and to align with the flow of the universe.


Same reddit-user writes also:

For those who are still sceptical and want a “logical” answer, that’s not what faith and spirituality correlates to. And I feel like you are in the wrong thread for something like that. I hope you have a good day regardless.


Then another user try to explain on the same Reddit thread:

God is an impersonal being to Taoists. Something us westerners will always have a hard time wrapping our mind around is the philosophy of “all is one.” We are seemingly incapable of understanding we are all, in a sense, _actually_ the same being. And, considering current strides and understanding in the fields of chemistry and quantum physics, we’ve learned all of reality is actually waves of energy and light.


More from internet

On the YouTube channel, there’s an interview with Penn Jillette, a militant and strong believer in atheism.

Anyway, BigThink is a nice channel to find great educational videos and interviews about many topics.

So what from this overview of opinions?

At the end of surfing the web looking for many opinions and way of views.

I see that someone that defines himself as an atheist exclude any interpretation outside the materialistic evidence.

<< I can’t see it, I can’t prove it, then it doesn’t exist>> It’s a good way to study, and it is the basic mindset for the scientific research.

But we always start by theories, and after we have to prove by experiments.

At the first point, we need imagination to try to connect the points. After we use our knowledge, tools and skills to investigate and find answers.

Richard Feynman (Nobel Prize in physics) said:

Scientific knowledge is a body of statements of varying degrees of certainty — some most unsure, some nearly sure, none absolutely certain.

Richard P. Feynman (2011). “”What Do You Care What Other People Think?”: Further Adventures of a Curious Character”, p.263, W. W. Norton & Company

It would be great if you share your ideas and opinions.
Open-minded and respectful people are welcome.

Look for the previous post from where we started.

How many times have we asked ourselves about the origin of creation?

From here, we go!

How many times have we asked ourselves:

Does God exist?

Is the soul immortal?

Does destiny exist?

What is faith?

It seems impossible to answer questions like this.
So far from our abilities and skills.

But we can try to find some signs. Because we’ll never stop asking such questions.

Is it about only science and logic?
Is about only faith?

From this post, if you like, we start an interesting research about this topic.
Maybe we’ll never find a definitive answer. At least it could be a good result to have a clearer vision about it.
It could be a good thing to lose a lot of prejudice and harmful opinions.

I’ll start to search for what scientists, people of faith and others have discovered and think about.

Hope you’ll enjoy this trip! If you’d like, share your thoughts and what you know about it.

Thank you.
