Belief in God 'childish,' Jews not chosen people: Einstein letter
Albert Einstein described belief in God as "childish superstition" and said Jews were not the chosen people, in a letter to be sold in London this week, an auctioneer said Tuesday.

The father of relativity, whose previously known views on religion have been more ambivalent and fuelled much discussion, made the comments in response to a philosopher in 1954.

As a Jew himself, Einstein said he had a great affinity with Jewish people but said they "have no different quality for me than all other people".

"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. ...

aztexan, your use of that quotation is the perfect description of the Vatican "Jesuits" and their Foolish DARKENED Hearts. (And that very quotation may have been given from a "Jesuit" Controlled Bible "Version" or "Translation"!)

O, How the "Jesuits" HATE Albert Einstein.

O, How they HATE The JEWS.

O, How they would LOVE to Destroy the Legacy of Albert Einstein!

As They would LOVE to Destroy Every JEW on The Face of This Earth!

Romans 1:
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
19 because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.
20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
21 For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

The article goes on to say that Albert Einstein said:

"For me the Jewish religion like ALL OTHERS is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions,"--ALBERT EINSTEIN

That's Albert Einstein's opinion(s); that's Albert Einstein's view(s):

That is NOT The Word Of GOD.

Albeit, Albert Einstein wasn't far from what The Word of GOD says about going to Heaven:

"And (Jesus) said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as Little Children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 18:3.

So, Albert Einstein could be construed & interpreted as speaking the truth with regards to "child-like Faith".

In his opinion(s) & view(s) on The Jewish Religion (which happens to be his own religion), as well as ALL OTHER religions, he likens them to be "born" or "incarnated" of or from what he says "the most childish superstitions".

As you may well know, "religious" and "superstitious" (religion/superstition) are at times held to be of equal definition as synonyms; as well as held to be of opposite definitions or antonyms:

"Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious." Acts 17:22.

"Albert Einstein described belief in God as "childish superstition"

Mr Einstein, There are pygmies in darkest africa.

Yes, thats true.

Mr Einstein, Do the pygmies know you?


Exactly, those who don't know you can't really believe in you can they.
And I thought you were intelligent Mr. Einstein.

14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and
how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and
how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent?

Thus in reverse
If God does NOT send a preacher
THEN NONE will hear.
If they don't hear
THEN they won't believe.
If they don't believe
THEN they are hardly going to turn to (call) upon God.

Are they.

God First

THEN the mortal can believe.

Faith then is NOT human in origin.

Faith IS the GIFT of God. Amen.

Einstein was an interesting person, he committed adultery, and there is not that much evidence that he thought as much about God as he did mathematics, so this letter would fall under the, "so?" category.

Back in 1979 there were MANY specials on TV, commemorating the
20th anniversary of Einstein's death. Not being a book-reader
myself, but a TV watcher then, I saw ALL of them. At least one
of these shows declared Einstein to be a committed Zionist and
very favorable to the Jews, not condescending as this letter

Another of these shows spoke of his dissaggreement with Niels
Bohr's perceived RANDOMNESS of the universe, saying instead
that 'there MUST be Order', stopping just short of declaring
the need for a first cause and maintainer of such "order"
(i.e. God).

Einstein or not, this letter is Atheist-candy. They'll LOVE it!

Be that as it may, Einstein didn't seem to share his fans' confidence in science:

"Suddenly [Einstein] lifted his head, look upward at the clear skies, and said: 'We know nothing about it all. All our knowledge is but the knowledge of school children.' "Do you think", I asked, "that we shall ever probe the secret?" 'Possibly', he said with a movement of his shoulders, 'we shall know a little bit more than we do now. But the real nature of things, that we shall never know, never.'"

- conversation recalled by Dr. Chaim Tschernowitz, from "Einstein, the Life and Times",

Two points:

* This news article has been written to be inflammatory - you can tell by the lack of context and the divisive nature of the selected quotes.

* Secondly, many people (Saul of Tarsus for example) have had extremely radical shifts in thinking at some point in their life.

Non-news articles like this ruin Please don't post flamebait and call it news.

".....although they are protected from the worst cancers by a lack of power." There is a big difference between 1954 and 2008. I'd say that using the Professor's guidelines the Jews are the most cancerous people on earth.

Doesn't matter a hang how "smart" man thinks you are.
If you have no Faith, - Then you know nothing about God and Truth.
