: This quote is attributed to Albert Einstein, who was troubled by developments in physics which increasingly pointed to a more indeterminate universe. With the outcome of experiments becoming more an array of statistical ranges rather than clear and definitive solutions ..... he made this statement. Science, and philosophy, has now moved in this direction, and it seems that dice is the universal game.
Quite so. Quantum physics seems increasingly to say that there is randomness everywhere. It will, however, take mankind a few millennia to get over the notion that there's a Big Dad in the Sky, watching over us. For all of us who find that creepy, there are a hundred who find it comforting.
