Re: No evidence = irrational
“The word 'God' is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation, no matter how subtle, can (for me) change this.”- Albert Einstein 1954

Re: Einstein's God of Spinoza
Einstein talked about his belief in the God of Spinoza in 1929. In 1954 , a year before he died, he said, “The word God is for me nothing but the expression of and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of venerable but still rather primitive legends. No interpretation, no matter how subtle, can (for me) change anything about this.”

Re: You The Man
If you search for the most intelligent person to ever live, you will find the name William James Sidis. If you look up information on him you will find: In 1919, Sidis was arrested for participating in a socialist May Day parade in Boston that turned violent.

He was sentenced to 18 months in prison under the Sedition Act of 1918. Sidis' arrest was featured prominently in newspapers, as his early graduation from Harvard had garnered him considerable local celebrity.

During the trial, Sidis stated that he had been a conscientious objector to the World War I draft, he was a socialist, and an atheist.

Re: You The Man
Yes, Russell claimed that beginning at age 15, he spent considerable time thinking about the validity of Christian religious dogma, which he found very unconvincing. At this age, he came to the conclusion that there is no free will and, two years later, that there is no life after death. Finally, at the age of 18, after reading Mill's Autobiography, he abandoned the "First Cause" argument and became an atheist.
