Einstein’s God


I found this picture on dozens of websites.
  I used the one from www.naivaelectric
because I liked the blue background.
The “God Letter’
offers
insights
into
the private thoughts
about
religion and God
of one of the world’s
most brilliant minds,
the smartest man
of  the 20h century,
Albert Einstein.

“The word God
is for me
nothing more
than
the expression
and product
of human weakness
The Bible,
a collection
of honorable,
but
still primitive legends
which are nevertheless
pretty childish.
No interpretation,
no matter how subtle,
can
change this.”
 
Albert Einstein’s God letter was written towards the end of his life.  This should settle the argument about Einstein’s religious beliefs.  When Einstein said “God does not play dice with the universe” he was using a metaphor, not expressing his religious beliefs.

The letter is currently up for auction with an opening bid of three million. Happy bidding!
