Confusing

The description says "in his own words" , yet these are not interviews of the man but about him. On the other hand, the item Interview: Einstein and Judaism is incorrectly titled since there is no mention of Judaism in the piece.

Einstein was an atheist ..

Kinda misleading title the author put on it.

Bad! Krista Tippett is using Einstein

Wikipedia describes Krista Tippett other work as: "tracing the intersection between great religious ideas and human experience, between theology and real life."

She is using Science to promote her own personal goals. She is bias.

Yes, Einstein used the word "god", but in a different way. Much like the philosopher Spinoza also used it in a different way. That will create some confusion, so let me clarify it with one quote from Einsein himself: “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.”
