Albert Einstein Letter Doubting God Auctioned For $2.89m by FirstoneUpdate: 11:17am On Dec 05
A handwritten letter by Albert Einstein in which the physicist doubts the existence of God was auctioned on Tuesday for $2.89 million.

It was a record for an Einstein letter and far surpassed its estimated value of $1.0-1.5 million, Christie’s said.


A 1939 letter in which Einstein warned then president Franklin D. Roosevelt about Germany’s atom bomb preparations was auctioned for $2.1 million in 2002.



In the letter sold on Tuesday, dated 1954 and written in German to philosopher Eric Gutkind, Einstein said he did not believe in God.

“The word God is for me nothing but the expression and product of human weaknesses,” Einstein wrote.

“The Bible, a collection of venerable but still rather primitive legends.”

The letter was last sold in 2008 to a private collector for $404,000, Christie’s said.

God bless Germany.
Germany was practically a blessing to the world in the 17th, 18th, 19th to mid 20th Century.
Almost 50% of world renowned physicists, chemists and biologists were Germans.

The first and Second WW destroyed Germany.

Altho I hvnt read d Quran, and I don't know much about d religion. But I feel d Bible is a story book made up by d Roman or whatever nation, for them to blame their inefficient and shortcomings on some1 or something,
Right from the beginning when God created Adam and Eve, why did he plant d apple tree in their reach?
Wat is d usefulness of d tree?
Why sud God punish every1 for one person's mistake.
Why do we have more than one religion wit diff God and method of worship.
The Bible is simply filled with stories that never existed,

I also don't believe in diabolical this, harvesting humans part for ritual, charms, all those thgs are bullshiit.
