Seems a bit hypocritical of him.
Inventing religion doesn't seem anymore childish than his making up a cosmological constant.
They're both fudge factors for stuff we don't understand.

This is great news for quantum physicists to whom Einstein once said that 'God does not play dice', as an argument against the uncertainty principle. He seemed to have felt that the uncertainty was only provisional, and that there was an underlying reality, in which particles would evolve according to deterministic laws. Now it turns out he was cheating, he did not have an argument. :-)
