Yeah Cuba is such a paradise under the Castro regime, comrade. How many have risked their lives to escape Castroland?

And note that all those in real power under the Castro regime are rather European in ancestry.

What is dreadful is Europeans and their ancestors in the New World seem to forget how blessed they are under the circumstances, and seem to believe that if we could only become Brazil, or Venezuela, we'd all be better off. Mass delusion at work. And fools too.

thanks for playing

HE BELIEVE IN GOD THE FATHER YAHWEH
No he did not.

You have this need to have Einstein believing in a God he did not believe in.

In the second quote Einstein specifically states that the "god" he believes in is Spinozas God. This is not a sentient being with a name but nature itself. Einstein specifically states also that the "god" he believes in is not an anthropological construct. The God of Einstein is not a being, it doesn't insert itself into the affairs of men (as the Jewish God most certainly did).

No, he very much believed in a God, not a personal God, the God he Describes is El HaShamayim (another name for jewish God "God of the Heavens/Creator)

HE constantly talks about understand how God Created the universe. he said I do not believe in a PERSONAL GOD (the Jewish God isn't a personal God, he is the God of a Chosen People). he didn't say "I DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD."

Wrong in so many ways. Where did you read this or what caused you to think these things?

Einstein expressed his skepticism regarding the existence of an anthropomorphic God, such as the God of Abrahamic religions, often describing this view as "na´ve"[3] and "childlike".[11] In a 1947 letter he stated, "It seems to me that the idea of a personal God is an anthropological concept which I cannot take seriously."[12] In a letter to Beatrice Frohlich on 17 December 1952, Einstein stated, "The idea of a personal God is quite alien to me and seems even na´ve."[13]

On 22 March 1954 Einstein received a letter from Joseph Dispentiere, an Italian immigrant who had worked as an experimental machinist in New Jersey. Dispentiere had declared himself an atheist and was disappointed by a news report which had cast Einstein as conventionally religious. Einstein replied on 24 March 1954:

Need I continue?

Sounds like the church no longer fulfills the needs of young white Americans.
