Einstein on Astrology

Letters of Note has another great letter where a great thinker demonstrates skepticism towards nonsense. This one is from Albert Einstein:

January 7, 1943

Mr. Eugene Simon
c.o. Rabbi Herman Simon
184 East Willmore Ave.
St.Paul, Minn.

Dear Sir:

I fully agree with you concerning the pseudo-science of astrology. The interesting point is that this kind of superstition is so tenacious that it could persist through so many centuries.

Very truly yours,

(Signed, ‘A. Einstein’)

Professor Albert Einstein.
