im not trying to prove anything to any one , and i lust fond it on the web and it amused me , if you want to do the work to find wen the quote was made by all means go all out , but until then don't get all righteous on me .

IMO whenever a quote is used in an argument it should be footnoted to verify it's authenticity and to allow others to look at it in context. For example:
“It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.”
Quoted by: Albert Einstein, Letter, 24 March 1954. Quoted in "Albert Einstein: The Human Side," edited by Helen Dukas and Banesh Hoffman
Just my 2 cents :)
