Freethinker? : in an interview New York Times Magazine Oct 02nd 1910..  he stated:
Nature is what we know. We do not know the gods of religions. And nature is not kind, or merciful, or loving. If God made me-the fabled God of the three qualitis of which i spoke: mercy, kindness, love - He also made the fish i catch and eat. And where do His mercy, kindness, and love for that fish come in? No, nature made us- nature did it all- not the gods of the religions.
For those remarks he was called : an atheist
Clarified himself in a private letter: 
"You have misunderstood the whole article, because you jumped to the conclusions that denies the existence of God. There is no such denial, what you call God I Call Nature,the Supreme intelligence that rules matter. All the article states is that it is doubtful in my opinion if our intelligence or soul or whatever one may call it lives hereafter as an entity or disperses back again from whence it came, scattered amongst the cells of which we are made"

Ikhwankaizen Carl®'s thoughts in voiceover:Really Juice
I just wanna share two verses from the Holy Book:
"Does man think that We shall not assemble his bones? Nay, We are Able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers" [THQ: The Resurrection 75 verses 3-4] 
Well God simply talk about fingertips when people know nothing about technology so..... renung renungkan dn selamat beramal
