    Exclamation Albert Einstein Is-He-Or-Isnt-He game

    Hi, teachers & language lover

    Can you kindly tell me anything about "Albert Einstein 'Is-He-Or-Isnt-He' game"?

    actually I read it in the following sentence :
    "On the other hand, maybe the Albert Einstein Is-He-Or-Isnt-He game in the sidebar has you prepared for anything."

    not a teacher

    I see that this is from the book "Atheism For Dummies". In the sidebar of that page the writer discusses the evidence for Einstein adhering to pantheistic views. He says that at different times Einstein expressed views that might be seen as pantheistic, while at other times he denied being pantheistic. Hence the reference to Einstein's "Is-He-Or-Isn't-He (pantheistic) game". The implication is that Einstein unwittingly set up a guessing game based on conflicting evidence.
