Einstein A Go Go To Hell

It has long been a matter of debate what the religious beliefs of former Marilyn Munroe lover and inventor of the Atom bomb Albert Einstein had.

Towards the end of his life he wrote in a letter a response to the philosopher Eric Gutkind casting doubt that he even believed in God.

In 1954, he wrote: "The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weakness, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish.

Harsh stuff Mr Einstein but how can they be legends when the life of Jesus has been presented on the 'History' channel?

Einstein, died the following year aged 76 after being struck down by lightning , he did not spare Judaism from his criticism, believing Jewish people were in no way "chosen" by God.

He wrote: "For me the Jewish religion like all others is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions. And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity have no different quality for me than all other people. "As far as my experience goes, they are no better than other human groups, although they are better protected from the worst cancers by a lack of power.

Otherwise I cannot see anything 'chosen' about them."

The Americans have chosen them to keep the oil prices up in the middle east and the Holy city away from the Muslims awaiting Christ's return it seems.

The letter, which for decades has been in private hands, has come to light as it is to go on sale at Bloomsbury Auctions in Mayfair on Thursday.
It is expected to sell for up to £8,000.

Educated at a Catholic primary school but given private tuition in Judaism, Einstein later wrote that the "religious paradise of youth" - when he believed what he was told - was quickly crushed when he started questioning religion at the age of 12.

Catholicism and Judaism , if only the poor man had found Presbyterianism for then he might not be allegedly burning in Hell.

Einstein wanted to believe and said he wanted to "experience the universe as a single cosmic whole".

The only thing the letter made clear was that Einstein was no genius.

The letter went for 20 times that amount.
