Many Christians with a superficial understanding of history like to invoke Einstein as a person sympathetic to their belief in God, and Hitler as if he was an atheist. I've discussed Hitler previously. A letter that was recently made public from Einstein helps clarify his views. He writes:
"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."
"For me the Jewish religion like all others is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions".
