Prof. Dawkins’ False Papal Fatwa: Einstein was a Pantheist and not a Deist?

Prof. Dawkins' False Papal Fatwa: 'Einstein was a Pantheist and not a Deist?'

We (Allah) have created you. Why, then, do you not accept the truth? What think ye of the sperm-drop that you emit? Is it you who have created it or are We the Creator? We have ordained death for all of you; and We cannot be prevented from bringing in your place others like you, and from developing you into a form which at present you know not. And you have certainly known the first creation. Why, then, do you not reflect? Do you see what you sow? Is it you who grow it or are We the Grower? If We so pleased, We could reduce it all to broken pieces, then you would keep lamenting: 'We are ruined! Nay, we are deprived of everything.' Do you see the water which you drink? Is it you who send it down from the clouds, or are We the Sender? If We so pleased, We could make it bitter. Why, then, are you not grateful? Do you see the fire which you kindle? Is it you who produce the tree for it, or are We the Producer? (Al Quran 56: 58-73)

Prof. Richard Dawkins given a Papal disguise, so, he can issue Fatwas!
Prof. Richard Dawkins is a loud apologist for atheism and for all practical purposes can be considered to be Pope of atheism, for this decade.  He is a vice president of the British Humanist Association, and a supporter of the Brights movement. He is well known for his criticism of creationism and intelligent design. In his 1986 book the Blind Watchmaker, he argues against the watchmaker analogy, an argument for the existence of a supernatural creator based upon the complexity of living organisms. Instead, he describes evolutionary processes as analogous to a blind watchmaker. He has since written several popular science books, and makes regular television and radio appearances, predominantly discussing these topics. In his 2006 book the God Delusion , Dawkins contends that a supernatural creator almost certainly does not exist and that religious faith is a delusion—"a fixed false belief." As of January 2010, the English-language version had sold more than two million copies and had been translated into 31 languages.  Apologists for theism certainly need to take him on and the Muslim Times is taking a lead in this endeavor.
The video clip in the Muslim Times is titled: Albert Einstein on god, the god delusion and would reveal Dawkin's Papal Fatwa, which he has issued on more than one occasion.
We agree with Prof. Dawkins expressions of religious tolerance but take issue with how he describes Einstein's religion. Dawkins in this clip and in his book the God Delusion, claims that Albert Einstein was a Pantheist, to substantiate his own position of being an atheist. But, the fact of the matter is that Einstein, like the Founding Fathers of USA, was a Deist. This should become abundantly clear, by reading of Zia H Shah's article about Albert Einstein and definition of Deist and Pantheist. After all Einstein did believe in Spinoza's God. Of course, as a Deist, he did not believe in a Personal God!
The word Piper should make one think of Deism and not Pantheism
So, if Einstein said, "Everything is determined, the beginning as well as the end, by forces over which we have no control. It is determined for the insect, as well as for the star. Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper," does it sound like Pantheism or Deism to you?
Einstein's quote in the above picture certainly speaks that there ought to be a Creator for our universe and for our human race.  However, there is no denying that Einstein denied Personal God on more than one occasion, but, his life, his pursuit of science, his commitment to Judaism and Israel, his writings and quotes about nature, science and religion can be comprehended only if he is understood to be a Deist, someone who believes in a Creator God, who does not answer prayers. Prof. Dawkins defines the terms of theism, deism, pantheism and atheism, in the first chapter of his book, the God Delusion and at one point also writes, "Pantheism is sexed up atheism. Deism is watered down theism." But, as the Pope of atheism, Dawkins issues his Papal Fatwa that Einstein was a Pantheist more than once in this very first chapter of his book, but, as is the case of many of his contemporary atheist Mullahs, he offers no arguments and reasons for his Fatwa! You be the judge! Read his book, articles about Albert Einstein linked in this post and see for yourself, is Dawkins correct in claiming him to be a Pantheist or the Muslim Times in calling Einstein a Deist?
