    What Does The Word "Thus" Mean. And when to use it?

    What does the word Thus mean?.. Also could you give me an example of how to use it?

    It means "in this way," and by extension, "so."

    Some people use it as a short version for "therefore."

    It's a conjunction that shows an expansion on a previous idea.

    There is an Einstein's sentence where thus means because of this preceding fact; consequently: The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophe. (The New Penguin Dictionary, 2000 edition p.1471)

    He also said, "God does not play dice with the Universe." He may have got his head around Relativity, but couldn't get his mind beyond man-made gods - and that includes God.

    I read this year that his private letters reveal he was an atheist.
