Newton and Einstein

The article said:

I'd like to see sources for these before reinserting them in the article. Albert Einstein just sounds wrong, as he was Jewish; he certainly did not have associations with the American Unitarian Association. Newton sounds possible, but I think there should be a source.

http://www.famousuus.com/science.htm claims Newton. I offer that as a reference to the actuality, but to the existance of the claim. I have never heard Einstein claimed before. One thing to keep in mind is that the connotational meaning of "Unitarian" has changed, especially over the past 40 years or so, from something like "A Christian who rejects the trinity" (a sense in which Newton "might" be a Uniterian) to something like "a religious humanist from a Christian tradition" (a sense in which Newton undoubtedly would not qualify).

Einstein was not a practicing jew.Jaques 08:33, 6 April 2007 (EDT)
There's a good argument to be made that Newton was a Socinian, which denied the Trinity. Here's an interview with Professor Stephen Snobelen, discussing Newton's beliefs.[[1]]--Epicurius 10:57, 6 April 2007 (EDT)

AUA name

In "The American Universalist Association was founded in 1825", that should be "Unitarian", not "Universalist", no? The Universalists in America organized in 1793, but I'm not sure what the name of the organization was at the time. I'm not Just FIxing This because it looks like Dpbsmith is currently editing and we'd likely conflict with one another. Jtl 13:06, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

  • Yeah, it was just a typo/braino... I think I'm done with this for the time being, by the way. Dpbsmith 13:41, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

Merge

There are four pages about the Unitarians, and this one seems to be the most complete. I propose merging them into this one. Does anybody find this objectionable? Corry 22:58, 29 July 2008 (EDT)

This is what, the third talk page that I'm saying this on? Anyway, I think it would be most logical to merge all of them into a page called unitarianism, because the page would reflect the ideology as a whole instead of the practitioners of the ideology. -Ilikecake 18:53, 27 December 2008 (EST)
