Einstein with Fr. George Lemaitre
“The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible.”
“All of these endeavors are based on the belief that existence should have a completely harmonious structure. Today we have less ground than ever before for allowing ourselves to be forced away from this wonderful belief.”
Hoffmann, Albert Einstein: Creator and Rebel (New York: Viking, 1972), p. 18. t A. Einstein, Essays in Science (New York: Philosophical Library, 1934), p. 11
Food for thoughts: if the world around us wasn’t comprehensible, then what place science or philosophy would have in our society?
