Einstein letter rejecting God, religion may fetch US$1M

Einstein wrote the letter to a Jewish philosopher in 1954, and it caused a sensation when it first went public at an auction sale in 2008 — complete with Einstein’s unambiguous declaration: “The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish.”


The Spiritual Wisdom of Albert Einstein

Though he was the most famous scientist of his time, Albert Einstein knew we could never fully understand the workings of the world within the limitations of the human mind. Experiencing the universe as a harmonious whole, he encouraged the use of intuition to solve problems, marveled at the the mystery of God in nature, and applauded the ideals of great spiritual teachers such as Buddha and Jesus.
