Albert Einstein’s 1950 letter to Jewish students advises that a scientist cannot believe in the biblical version of creation
Last week, The Raab Collection announced that it had acquired and was offering for sale for the first time ever publicly Albert Einstein’s great letter on the biblical version of creation.

In it, Einstein states that a person of science could not believe in the Genesis version of creation and confirms his belief that science “replaces and supersedes it.”

The letter has since been sold to an American collector for $125,000. To learn more about Einstein autographs, please visit our Einstein page.
