Einstein’s Letter Questioning God Goes Up for Auction

... The private letter written by Einstein expressing his views on God and religion will go up for auction Monday (Oct. 8) on eBay. In the letter, he calls belief in religion and God “pretty childish” and ridicules the idea that the Jews are a chosen people. ...

... In part of his letter, Einstein writes, “For me the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions. And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity have no different quality for me than all other people. ...

... In a March 24, 1954 letter, he is quoted as writing, “It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. 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.” ...

... The letter is in its original envelope, holding a stamp and postmark from Princeton, N.J, where Einstein lived toward the end of his life. ...

Don’t worry…David Barton will buy it and find a way to twist it to say that not only was he hyper religious, he was actually a covert christian!

Then Glenn Beck will dedicate a “special” with Barton debunking Einstein’s theory and crediting it to St. Augustin. Fortunately Barton’s historical spin can be debunked by anyone with a high school textbook and thanks to Chris Roda the spotlight is on his religious wish books. Hopefully he’ll go by the way of Von Danekin.
