Denial of god (not religion), which is nothing more than a causal principle, is denial of causality.  The triad of science - reason, observation and experiment (experiment is the sole judgment of "scientific truth" - Feynman (scare quote by Feynman)), is only after causality.  Many miss the subtle point.  Whether causality is a myth or not is not the purpose of my comment here.

I have often been intrigued at the parallels one can fathom in the life timelines of Sri Bhagavan and Albert Einstein. For starters, both were born on the same year, and both left on April (5 years apart).
Here is a brief compilation of the timeline comparing the significant events side by side. It is neither comprehensive, nor complete nor to be taken as some intellectual academic exercise. It is a result of my curiosity in the striking parallels. We should leave it at that.

The PDF version can be found here:
