Interpretations of: God does not play dice, vary.

Does God Play Dice? - http://www.hawking.org.uk/index.php/lec ... ectures/64

Of course, later Mr Hawking reconsidered when he claimed that even black holes do not eat information. Well, that is my, layman, understanding of the matter.

edit: just hmm side note

[Albert] Einstein's theism, such as it was, was his faith that God does not play dice with the universe -- that there are elegant, eventually discoverable laws, not randomness, at work. Saying "I'm not an atheist," he explained:

"We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is."
