GOPer TN State Rep Niceley Believes That Albert Einstein Was A Christian Creationist
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

4/7/11: Tennessee Tea Party legislator state Rep. Frank Nicely argues in favor of a bill to encourage public schools to "teach the controversy" for evolution and climate change. He falsely attributes a mangled version of a 16th-century Francis Bacon quotation to humanist Jew, Albert Einstein.

1. In an autobiographical essay published in 1949, Einstein told of his loss of faith as a child
In an autobiographical essay published in 1949, Einstein told of his loss of faith as a child:
...through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached the conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true. The consequence was a positively fanatic orgy of freethinking, coupled with the impression that youth is intentionally being deceived by the state through lies. (in Paul Schilpp, ed. Albert Einstein, Philosopher-Scientist, Open Court, 1949, p. 5)
