I get comments…
Do you guys think you are smarter than Einstein, who proved the existence of God mathematically? That Blair Scott is just seeking attention. He cannot be that smart otherwise he would watch his health instead of trying to dictate how others should think.
Well, maybe I am smarter than Einstein. Ever think of that, Stella? Watch this 30 second video and tell me that this is the same Einstein that you think so highly of that you commit the appeal to authority fallacy.

Maybe we could attempt the mathematical proof of god. Trinitarian mathematics: 1 + 1 + 1 = 1?
Or maybe we could see if Einstein was being misrepresented, misquoted, taken out of context, or even outright lied about.
It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it. – Albert Einstein 1954
I mean think about it, Stella. If Einstein had mathematically proven god’s existence, wouldn’t people kind of remember him for that? As a former creationist, I used to quote-mine Einstein’s metaphorical use of the word ‘god’ to misrepresent Einstein’s position on faith. I wasn’t even aware that I was wrong about this, as I was simply repeating what others had said. But I have never heard of Einstein’s mathematical proof of god until now.
Why not? Because this myth originated years after I had already de-converted. It comes from one of those e-mail chain mailings that old people send to everybody they’ve ever met. This urban legend first appeared in 2004. The exact same story was also found circulating 5 years earlier, but without the freshly added Einstein angle. This is just a few plausible steps from believing that a ‘huge kesh out’ will come your way from a Nigerian Prince.
I think this is a discrepancy worthy of
Here are some more attempts to force the meme, click to embiggen. I’m even providing a blank Advice Einstein, just in case.
Let me know if you make your own Advice Einstein. Advice god is always in all caps, I think Einstein would be a little more classy. (Photoshop tip: use Impact font, white, with the text layer’s blending option 2px stroke black)
Ad Homenim attacks on Blair Scott aside, this was just an area of confusion easily cleared up. End of story, right? Not quite. A few minutes later, Stella was pissed that her comment didn’t show right away.
I know you will not publish this because Blair’s website does not allow comments…only HIS views are allowed and nobody can disagree…narcissistic for sure, other neurological problems? Only his doctor would know but he does not look healthy.
I replied to Stella’s ad hominem attacks in the comment thread.
