Einstein - God Is The Expression And Product Of Human Weakness

The theory that Albert Einstein believed in of the existence of a creator was contradicted by himself in a letter written by him in his last year of life in which he describes religion as "primitive legends and childish."
Einstein's views on religion have long been debated, many clinging to its phrases such as "He (God) does not leave roll dice on peoples luck and life" as evidence that he believed in a creator.
But a letter was not made ​​public until now that was an answer to the philosopher Eric Gutkind Einstein shows that the scientist did not believe in the existence of God at all towards the end of his life.
The letter, dated January 3, 1954, wrote: "The word 'God' is nothing more to me than the expression and product of human weakness, the Bible is a collection of legends honorable, but primitive, which are, however, quite childish . "No interpretation no matter how subtle can not change my opinion, " he adds.

I completely agree with this. God, fashioned by man, is there to make daily life bearable despite the path that each one of us treads towards extinction.

If I remember correctly... Einstein didn't believe in a creator?

einstein's famous quote that god doesn't roll dice, i think, is actually about his view on physics, and how nothing is random, everything is ruled by strict laws. nice blog, following you.
