Since the unveiling of this letter, atheists, agnostics and the like have been in glee - their most favorite scientist of all time was finally "outed" as the atheist he was. The religious fanatics can no longer use Einstein as one of the faithful.
To take this letter and hold it up as proof that Einstein did not believe in God is to oversimplify the issue. To Einstein, what God IS was simply defined differently by him. To Einstein, God is all that is known in the universe and all that is unknown - a combination of omnipotent knowledge of everything - energy, light, time, particles, and perhaps other dimensions. Does that sound like a god?
What is God to you?
