Einstein v God

Einstein on religion:

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

He went on to add, “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.”

(Though historians believe he may have made the latter point while nibbling on a knish).

Concentration is important!
