Einstein on Religion

A letter in which Einstein clearly states how he feels about religion is to be auctioned this week.

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. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this.

My admiration for him just went up a hundred-fold.

Chico:

I agree with him, religion seems kinda childish, with it’s “we shunt reality as it is and substitute it with our own because we don’t like the world the way it really is..”

Dennis:

Yup, he was indeed an incredibly smart man. I love how Einstein, the Einstein came to the same conclusion as you and I. Well, 95% of Denmark basically.

I agree with what you said. Most “believers” need to grow a pair and wake up. But then again, if that helps their everyday lives then go ahead. Just as long as they don’t come and try to convince me of their bullshit.

Please, Don't Be Shy
