“I see only with deep regret that God punishes so many of His children for their numerous stupidities, for which only He Himself can be held responsible; in my opinion, only His nonexistence could excuse Him.”

Albert Einstein in a letter to Edgar Meyer, Jan. 2, 1915. Qtd. in The Expanded Quotable Einstein (p. 201) and The Portable Atheist (p. 158).
