Counter-counterexample; what Einstein really believed, rather than what certain types have been desperately trying to falsely claim he believed.

It seems to me that the idea of a personal God is an anthropomorphic concept which I cannot take seriously. I feel also not able to imagine some will or goal outside the human sphere. My views are near to those of Spinoza: admiration for the beauty of and belief in the logical simplicity of the order and harmony which we can grasp humbly and only imperfectly. I believe that we have to content ourselves with our imperfect knowledge and understanding and treat values and moral obligations as a purely human problem—the most important of all human problems.
Einstein was not a theist. The closest he came was being awed by the majesty of the natural universe. As he made excruciatingly clear in his writings, to anyone who was trying to figure out what he actually believed, rather than simply looking for an out-of-context quote they could pin on their "side" of the scoreboard.
