Einstein's 'childish' letter sells for $400k

Albert Einstein's letter dismissing the Bible as "a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish" fetched a real adult price at auction. The collector signing the $400,000 check was not identified.

I cross-posted my earlier mention of this letter at Christianity Today' Liveblog. The comments turned into an interesting back and forth between evangelicals and atheists. Such as:
I dare say I could find many religious "zealots" who have a far higher intellectual capacity than yourselves and who certainly do not have primitive minds. You betray great intellectual insecurity yourselves by resorting to name-calling rather than actual debate.
