Dawkins shops for atheism

By Simon Round, May 23, 2008

Author Richard Dawkins, who has become the patron saint of atheists since his book The God Delusion was published, has revealed that he bid for a letter by Albert Einstein in which the latter described Judaism as “childish superstition”.

Dawkins could not match the £170,000 the letter fetched at auction in London last week. Maybe there is a God after all.
