    Einstein letter, set for auction, shows scientist challenging idea of God, being 'chosen'





    This does not reflect my beliefs, however after the thread on Islam I thought that this would offer a different perspective on the meaning of religions in people's lives. I will be interested in hearing from both pro-Israelis and pro-Palestinians on this matter.

    why would you consider the vague metaphysical musings of einstein an issue for this board? "Einstein wrote in a letter" gee-----how exciting-----he did not even know that the thing would ever be read by anyone other than the person to whom he addressed it and probably did not even bother to PROOF READ his little note and probably did not even give that which he wrote------a whole lot of thought. I am always fascinated when people quote from letters and diaries and odd little comments as if the little samples MUST REFLECT SOME CONSISTENT AND IMPORTANT INSIGHT INTO TRUTH Maybe he was tired or drunk when he wrote that letter? -------Maybe that letter truly reflects his lifetime philosophy or maybe he was just writing something he thought would please the receiver of the letter.

    If a philosopher writes a book-----revises it----works on it -----then it reflects something about his thinking---- ........a letter?-------was it a post card from Miami?

    My all time fave is citations of some scribblings in a personal diary-------late at nite----after a party-----alcohol haze and then a sleeping pill -----I WILL NOW WRITE DEEP AND HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT STUFF IN THIS LITTLE NOTEBOOK THAT I ASSUME NO ONE WILL EVER READ----EVEN I WILL PROBABLY NEVER READ IT AGAIN

    Don't mind Patrick. He has this deep down hatred for Jews & searches continuously to find anything possible he feels will slander Jews. Have mercy on this poor soul. Can you imagine the pain & suffering he lives with 24/7 everyday with all those Jews out there? If not for the grace of God, it could have been us.

    It's obvious to all but PattyCatty that his interest here isn't the Israel - "Palestine" conflict but rather her disdain for "the Chosen." :D

    Well Crap !!!
    Why don't you guys cut to the chase and define Einstein as a Self Hating Jew. By the way if you didn't notice it he is the one who was talking about the " chosen "
    Once again my preference is to be called Patrick, don't be rude.

    What's your fucking point Patrick? Or is it just another desperate attempt by an internet scouring Jew hater to vent his hatred? Ha ha ha.

    Einstein, throughout his life, changed his position on whether he believed in an almighty, more than once. He even advocated Buddhism, as evidenced below. ( and I think this thread is perfectly fine for this board, for what that is worth. )

    "The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description. If there is any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs, it would be Buddhism." – Albert Einstein
