Btw, don't make a mistake between Quantum Theory, which was the field of quantum sciences in Einsteins time and Quantum Mechanics as we know it
Einstein actually contributed greatly to Quantum theory and laid many of its basis.
It was only after Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg came up with their interpretation of Quantum theory, now known as Quantum Mechanics, which showed
that the Quantum world was inherently probabilistic, that Einstein fell behind.
As I said in my first reply, he stated "God doesn't trow dice".
Einstein was not a Christian or catholic really, he saw himself as an agnostic, but firmly believed that there was a God, creator, who reveals Himself
in the lawful harmony of the world.
Even though he wasn't religious to the extent that he followed a certain church, his views and ultimate demise as an innovator in science still was
due to his religious beliefs, that there was a god that created everything to be in a preset harmony with definite answers, which would translate in
mathematical methods and scientific laws with which everything could be calculated and stated to have a specific outcome.
His religious beliefs wouldn't allow him to believe that the quantum world is based on harmonious chaos (probabilities and odds with no definite
answers, where the more information you have, the more precise you can calculate the odds.)
