Albert Einstein’s death was in 1955. Yet, decades after, there are occasions where his works or letters are in the news; and stirs controversy. In an Einstein letter that will be auctioned, the Nobel Prize physicist states:
“…Einstein writes “the word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish.”
Born to a Jewish family in Germany in 1879, he also adds that “for me, the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions.””
The controversy that the letters stirs certainly would appeal to Einstein’s sense of humour.
