Albert Einstein Calls the Bible "pretty childish"

Next time some religious cretin tries to tell you about how Einstein was a religious guy, just send him to this letter from Old Albert to Eric B. Gutkind, a philosopher and theologian in response to Gutkind's book Choose Life.
The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this. These subtilised interpretations are highly manifold according to their nature and have almost nothing to do with the original text.
