Often used the word "God" or "Old Man" as a metaphor for the Laws of Nature. As a member of the American Humanist Association, there is little reason to think he believed in any kind of personal God. In a letter to Eric Gutkind dated 3 January 1954 he wrote, "The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weakness, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish... For me the Jewish religion like all others is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions. And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity have no different quality for me than all other people

I'm pretty sure he was an atheist, but not certain.

I am surprised by the offhandedness with which he rejects the Old Testament. His superficial (and subjective) rejection of the Jewish religion is very unbecoming of an intellectual.

Nevertheless, I was under the impression it was common knowledge that it could be gleaned from his writings that he was a Pantheist, who believed that God subsisted in all materiality.

This.

I am not sure if you are serious or not, but in case you are not, you should go here and type in "acronym". Then search the results until you find one that answers your question.


Quote: What is PAT (short for Patrick?).

Just before saying "PAT" in his post, the poster had said "Who wants to be Wulfrano's personal acronym translator?" I would assume that he is referring to this: "Personal Acronym Translator".

INPEFESS, don't forget that English is not Wulfrano's first language. :)
