Of course they can.  I never denied it.  But have they?  I know of no
philosophers that have taken Einstein's philosophical statements and showed
that they had any depth other than the simple opinion of a man.  Thus, they
should be given the respect that any man's opinion gets, but should not be
exagerated in their importance or depth simply by associating them to the name
of a great scientist.
