    True religion vs. false religion

    I've encountered believers whom I've truly respected, and religious people who have excited nothing but my contempt. And, whether you call it God or the Universe, I think the big difference is this:

    A genuine believer compares his self to the Divinity, and is humbled.
    A false believer conflates his self with the Divinity, and becomes arrogant.

    Albert Einstein said "To know that what is impenatrable for us really exists and manifests itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, whose gross forms alone are intelligible to our poor faculties - this knowledge, this feeling ... that is the core of the true religious sentiment. In this sense, and in this sense alone, I rank myself amoung profoundly religious men."

    George W. Bush said "I feel like God wants me to run for President."
