Prof Dawkins, professor of the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University, is also said to have "scandalously" selected particular quotes from Einstein to back up his claims that God does not exist.

Actually, Dawkins said that Einstein's personal views on the existence of gods are irrelevant to the truth. But Dawkins talked about him to tackle a popular myth among theists that Einstein believed in a (personal) god, which is actually used by theists as evidence for the existence of the divine.
