London, Oct 6 (IANS) Albert Einstein's handwritten letter in which he calls religion "childish" is to be auctioned on Monday.
The letter with a starting price of 1.85 million pounds (about $3 million), is expected to go for as much as 3.7million pounds (about $ 6 million).
In the letter to philosopher Eric Gutkind in 1954, the genius questions the existence of God. In his note, written a year before his death, Einstein says the word God is "nothing more than the expression of human weaknesses".
Einstein, born to Jewish parents, added: "The Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions."
The letter will be sold online through Los Angeles-based Auction Cause.
