A handwritten letter by German physicist Albert Einstein has been auctioned by Christie for a whooping $2.89 million Dollars.
In the letter sold on Tuesday, dated 1954 and written in German to philosopher Eric Gutkind, Einstein said he did not believe in God.
“The word God is for me nothing but the expression and product of human weaknesses,” Einstein wrote.
“The Bible, a collection of venerable but still rather primitive legends.”
The letter was last sold in 2008 to a private collector for US$404,000, Christie’s said
