Science, Theoretical Physics, the Mysteries of the Universe and the Nudge Towards the Supreme Creator
One of the world’s greatest theoretical physicists — Einstein — despite his known agnosticism, actually provokes our minds with his unending query to God. Questions which the scientific community had never answered.
Despite his agnosticism, Einstein seemed to push the scientifically-inclined towards God!
Did God Have a Choice?

The world renowned self-confessed agnostic, scientist-physicist Albert Einstein remarked that : Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
He was quoted to have the unfulfilled wish of asking God the purpose of the creation of the Universe.
Hence, rather remarkable the adage that Science Demands Explanation, But Religion Tolerates Mystery.
Only from Einstein’s provocations, that I’m intrigued in the scientific theoretical physicist query : What role then is left for God? Only the main role. To Einstein, God was a code word for the mystery and grandeur of the universe, the wellspring of awe, a reminder that there was something at the core of existence that all his equations could only graze, as he said once, “something we cannot penetrate.”
As a mere example :
The Golden Ratio which is 1:1.618 (generally shortened to 1.6). This ratio occurs in plants, the arc of planetary trajectories, sea shells, and it goes on forever.
One of the Universal mysteries at which we may only gaze in awe.
