The letter, handwritten in 1954, a year before Einstein's death, was addressed to philosopher Eric Gutkind. In it, Einstein discussed his views on religion, including calling "the Bible a collection of honorable but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish."I hope the right person buys the letter because I would not be terribly surprised to learn that some Christian extremist group had bought it with the intention of burning it so that David Barton could claim that Einstein was a devout Christian. Oh, who am I kidding? Barton is probably claiming that already.
