The letter was written to philosopher Eric Gutkind in January 1954, a year before Einstein's death. In it, the Einstein said that "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."More importantly it should put to rest the noises the religious people make about Einstein being Christian... I've had to "explain" on several occasions that his references to "god" were always couched in terms that imparted his wonder of the natural order -- and had nothing to do with the god of the bible.
Unfortunately, like most who "believe", my arguments didn't dent the armor of faith.
