Einstein’s letter calls Bible ‘pretty childish’

Albert Einstein on Religion

But I doubt that it will be as important as this one going up for auction that Eric Gutkind received from Albert Einstein. In it Einstein explains how un-ambivalent he can be about belief in God describing it as ‘childish superstition” and that the Jews are not the “chosen people”. 

Albert gave us this unambiguous interpretation back in 1954 in a letter to the philosopher Eric Gutkind.  This was 1 year before his death.  You know what they say when your maker is a calling: “Things sometimes tend to get in focus”. In Einsteins case I think that meant science was more important to him.

Well anyhow, read the article with a reprint of the letter to get it first hand without the “Lost in Translation” effect of this blogger.

I’m sure that you’ll agree Einstein says it best when it’s Einstein speaking:

Enjoy,
