Einstein was an Atheist! Proof: Einstein's "God letter"
Topic: Einstein was an Atheist! Proof: Einstein's "God letter"
One year before his death Einstein privately rejected god and religion, as well.
Below is a link to a partial translation of Einstein's "God letter."
Written 1 year before his death, a
private Einstein "God letter" recently sold for 400K, and reveals previously
witheld private views on God and Religion. Also see:
However, with regard to his publicly stated religious views (while in the U.S.) Einstein would properly have been considered a Scientific Pantheist, rather than simply a Pantheist. "Scientific Pantheism" is a formal modern day branch of modern day Pantheism.
In short, Einstein privately was an Atheist! A man's private views expressed privately a year before his death offer greater insight into a man's truly held beliefs, than would have any public statements for mass consumption, spoken during a man's career.
What is VERY interesting to be aware of is that the referred to letter was
"deep sixed" for a half century! Someone wanted to be very certain that Einstein's Atheistic beliefs were not made known!
Einstein as an Atheist is a topic which I've debated at Religious Forums, and I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever, thay even within an Atheist Forum, fervent and vehement opposition to be hatefully expressed for every possible reason under the sun and moon, as it always has been.
