Or even better yet, how about the original? It’s going up for sale on ebay. Here’s my copy of the letter:

And the ebay site is here.

The letter was written to the author of Choose Life The Biblical Call To Revolt, and includes this famous comment:

… 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. For me the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions. And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity have no different quality for me than all other people. As far as my experience goes, they are also no better than other human groups, although they are protected from the worst cancers by a lack of power. Otherwise I cannot see anything ‘chosen’ about them.

    I would, but I already spent my money buying the Brooklyn Bridge on eBay.

    So many “faux Einstein” quotes get thrown up on facebook, it is good to have something real to open a few eyes.
