But if I translate the whole thing there will only be one theory left

That is some starry-eyed optimism there, sir. Especially when it comes to people on the internet.

Einstein, in a letter refuting various claims that he was a religious man, wrote "It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions... 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."
Einstein's god was a god of the the unknown becoming known. His god was in the realization that time travels slower in earth's orbit as compared to ground level. That the universe had a speed limit that everything obeys. That the fundamental elements of reality are sensitive to the very act of being measured.
