Lets look at your signature quotes. Because context is everything.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge." -Albert Einstein

Now in context.

quote:
I believe in intuition and inspiration. … At times I feel certain I am right while not knowing the reason. When the eclipse of 1919 confirmed my intuition, I was not in the least surprised. In fact I would have been astonished had it turned out otherwise. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.

Cosmic Religion : With Other Opinions and Aphorisms (1931) by Albert Einstein, p. 97

"Before God we are all equally wise and equally foolish."

This probably not an actual Einstein quote. There is no original source.

I am not sure what point you are trying to get across with these quotes and the quotes by Hawking and Sagan.


Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

What does anything Mr. Einstein said have to do with evolution or this topic?
