"...As the first way out there was religion, which is implanted into every child by way of the traditional education-machine. Thus I came -- despite the fact that I was the son of entirely irreligious (Jewish) parents -- to a deep religiosity, which, however, found an abrupt ending at the age of 12. Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached the conviction that much in the stories of the [christian] bible could not be true. The consequence was a positivly fanatic [orgy of] free- thinking coupled with the impression that youth is intentionally being deceived by the state through lies; it was a crushing impression. - This from his "Autobiographical Notes" appearing in the volume "Albert Einstein: Philosopher-scientist."
