Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, really, why?

Einstein is no better guide to the truth of the universe (such as it is) than anyone else - and was, at best, only religious in the very weakest sense: he was probably a non-believer. Newton was largely fruitbat. You can cite their mathematics, you can cite their results, that's useful (though both have issues with their maths if I recall correctly - Newton's formulation of integrals is less than entirely rigorous). Their opinion on spirituality, baseball, soccer or beer is not privileged.
