So how did the universe begin? How did life arise on Earth? These have been mankind’s most important questions through the ages. In the last century, we have learned more about science and the creation of the universe, than everything that was known before the twentieth century. What is more notable, the last decade has opened new discoveries leading to new theories that give us unique hypotheses about the presence of God and the nature of the universe.

Today’s article will discuss some of the most famous scientists in history who believed in God.

    Where are the rest of 125 who didn’t?

    Einstein wrote: “I do not believe in a personal God. If something is in me which can be called religion, then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.”

    Also, note: “In his writings, there are well-known references to God and frequent discussions of religion. Although Einstein stated that he was religious and that he believed in God, it was in his own specialized sense that he used these terms. Many are aware that Einstein was not religious in the conventional sense, but it will come as a surprise to some to learn that he clearly identified himself as an atheist and as an agnostic.” — Philip W. King, “Einstein’s Credo”

  3. Jesus loves them and He loves all. Love Him as He is your savior. Amen!

  4. hello smart in the world that believed in god thank you i don’t know why people think god is fake they should be ashamed but god will bless you guys well toodles

  5. Lorenz

    Really? You missed out Georges Lemaitre, the Belgian PRIEST who was the first person to propose the theory of the expansion of the universe? He should be on top of that list.

  6. George P. Maroulis

    Also “Nikola Tesla” ONE of the greatest scientists ever(after Maxwell & Faraday). He was a serbian born in Croatia. His father was an Serbian Orthodox priest. I think he should be AT LEAST in the second place of the greatest scientist EVER!

  7. i am very happy because there are scientist who believe in God our Savior.

  8. Bashir Umar Dandume

    If those are the 25 scientist that blieve in ALLAH, so whose are the remaining that don’t blieve in ALLAH ?

  9. Jon

    Are there any from this century? (Einstein was an atheist, by the way.) Many of the scientists on this list (almost all) are from a time period where being an atheist publicly was career suicide and could even result in physical harm. In today’s scientific community, there are virtually no physicists (less than 1%) who believe in God. Why is that?

  10. ‘ I do agree with God presence, but i also firmly believe that Human Can be the one having the same potential and same powers to became a God’. I strongly believe this’.

  11. Larry

    Billy Graham isn’t a scientist but is a fantastic man of God in his own right and this is his quote:

    “Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil – it has no point”

  12. Steve

    Bashir, ALLAH is a false moon god. The true God is Love and does not want anyone to perish. He sent His Son (yes He has a Son) Jesus, who died on the cross for your sins. The Father together with the Son and His Spirit are One God. Not three, One God. Pray and ask Him to come into your life and you will be changed. Muslims everyday are seeing visions of Jesus (search on YouTube and see) and are finding His Love and forgiveness. God does not want to kill, He wants to save and Love.

    To Jon,

    Einstein was not an atheist, he was an agnostic who believed in God but, that God, after creating the universe, did not interfere with the happenings of human beings and other events in the universe. Some of his quotes on the topic of God are as follows:

    “I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details.”

    “Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.”

    “My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.”

    “Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.”

    “God does not play dice with the universe.”

    “God is subtle but he is not malicious.”

    “When the solution is simple, God is answering.”

  14. James

    Yes but a scientist would say it does have a point! It’s just dull. Sorry you set that one up, I am a scientist who believes in god and you will find many many who do. I’m not sure where you pulled 1% of physicists from, probably a black hole near the 7th planet.

    Especially quantum physicists, causation does not equal creation, Hawking doesn’t but he’s not the only QM master. I wonder why they nick named it the “god” particle. Oh, they are all hipsters, I see.

    I was a reluctantly religious youth, then an atheist with doubts, then brought to belief in god through science, mainly QM. Do I know what god is exactly, no I can’t possibly fathom that its like thinking about infinity. I can understand in theory and use this knowledge but not really comprehend it.

    Not everything in religious text is word for word literal fact, there are some metaphors in there. Read Ishmael by Daniel Quinn, for some insight.

    Food for thought: If you prove god exists can you still believe in god, or vice versa?

    You wrote “I was a reluctantly religious youth, then an atheist with doubts, then brought to belief in god through science, mainly QM.”

    Will you tell me what science, and specifics in QM, brought you back to faith? I have a budding scientific family member who is just starting the process (thinking she might be atheist because of doubts), and I’d like to help her in any way I can. Thank you~

    Every scientist display himself as atheist to the world due to the other scientists and scientist community think belive in god is taboo,but that doesnt mean they are really not belive in god. i dont support god as a particular human being i think god mean a ultimate source of energy which controll the universe.

    Here’s what Einstein said in an interview in G. S. Viereck’s book Glimpses of the Great, in response to a question about whether or not he believed in God.

    “Your question [about God] is the most difficult in the world. It is not a question I can answer simply with yes or no. I AM NOT AN ATHEIST. I do not know if I can define myself as a Pantheist. The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. May I not reply with a parable? The human mind, no matter how highly trained, cannot grasp the universe. We are in the position of a little child, entering a huge library whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different tongues. The child knows that SOMEONE MUST HAVE written those books. It does not know WHO OR HOW. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child notes A DEFINITE PLAN IN THE ARRANGEMENT of the books, a mysterious order, which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of the human mind, even the greatest and most cultured, TOWARD GOD. We see a universe MARVELOUSLY ARRANGED, obeying certain laws, but we understand the laws only dimly. Our limited minds cannot grasp the MYSTERIOUS FORCE that sways the constellations.”

  18. GoetheStein

    It is equally sad to see both devouts and atheists pushing henceforth their own individual agendas.
