Einstein a Creationist?

Yesterday, Red State Rabble reported on a list of 11 scientists "who doubted evolution" published by Rev. Jerry Johnston that included -- in addition to seven scientists who died before Darwin was born -- the name of Albert Einstein.

Now we read this:

"During April 2005, humanistic Jews across North America will be lighting memorial candles to Albert Einstein, Jewish humanist and scientist, on the fiftieth anniversary of his death.

"Albert Einstein was an ardent humanist who believed that human power and human responsibility were the foundations of the moral life," explained Rabbi Sherwin Wine, Dean of the Institute that trains humanistic rabbis. "Einstein maintained that ethical rules flowed from human experience and from the requirements of human survival. While he stood in awe of the wonders of the universe, he refused to worship them."

RSR shudders to think, could the good Rev. Jerry be wrong about Einstein, too?
