Would your opinions be anyway influenced by the fact that Einstein was Jewish ? they are the sort of comments I would expect to hear from the neo nazi's
If I have seen further it is by standing on ye sholders of Giants.
Einstein made it very clear where he got his ideas from and was therefore no thief.
I can see two good reasons for attacking him (he wasn't a great family man, and he allowed Lorentz to be sidelined even though both men's theories were viable), but your attack is over the top.
Your attack is really on science as a whole though, suggesting that you may have some other motivation and are picking on Einstein because you see him as its figurehead. Whatever the case, your thread is destructive rather than constructive and has no place on this forum.
So you must judge an innovator by what they have added to what already exists- and what they have ignored from the accepted wisdom. Bear in mind that if you jump too far beyond what is already known, nobody will understand the work, and they will be written off as a crackpot (see the tragedy of the mathematician Galois, whose work we now use every day in our mobile phones, computers, etc).
]A theory on the photoelectric effect (which won him the Nobel prize, and was one of the starting points for quantum theory on which most of our modern electronic conveniences are based)
The Michelson-Morley experiment (from which he produced the theory of relativity, gravitational lensing, and is a significant contributor to the accuracy of the GPS that many of us use when visiting an unfamiliar address)
He had an uncanny ability to visualise the results of experiments which were impossible to conduct. With the help of others, he turned this into mathematics that other physicists could apply.
[In his later life, he played a role in developing the atomic bomb, and then trying to prevent its proliferation...
In today's internet-connected world, it is possible to Google the answer to almost any question you can ask. This has led to considerable plagiarism of homework assignments. But it also allows for tools which locate copied content - within the same class, from previous years, or from anywhere on the internet. So we will all be judged by what we can add to the already known.
But creative and non-conformist geniuses like Einstein, Newton and Galois will still stand out above the crowd. To help spot these individuals, look for Nobel laureates, or winners of the Fields medal in mathematics.
*Only Newton stole this proverb from Bernard of Chartres, who took it from John of Salisbury...
Science = IndoctrinationContrary to popular belief, scientific education does not require any intelligent thought, it's about "remembering" what science taught you. It's this remembering that makes you feel smart - even if you're not.

To see the importance of Einstein's relativity in GPS[/color], lets apply some of the rote learning of high school in a new context:The atomic clocks in the GPS satellites are intentionally set about 36 microseconds slow on Earth, so they will be precisely correct when they reach operational orbit.A large part of this correction is due to time running slower when you are moving very quickly in Earth orbit, ofset by the fact that time moves more slowly when you are on the surface of the Earth, in a gravitational field. Both of these factors first arise in Einstein's theory of relativityWithout this correction, your position as calculated by GPS would have an error of about 10 km on the first day (and increasing by similar amounts each day). This means that it would be effectively impossible to solve the equations to determine your position in space and time.This is far worse than the actual performance which is usually within 100m.The 10km comes from the fact that the speed of light in air is just slightly slower than the speed of light in a vacuum, at about 3x108 m/s. In 36 microseconds, the signals from the satellite will travel about 10km.
curvature of space is ridiculous to say the least
I agree that the curvature of space is non-intuitive to most people.
Bending of light by the Sun was predicted by classical physics. But Einstein gave a mathematical basis to show that it was a fundamental aspect of the universe. It was demonstrated just a few years later by Eddington, in 1919. We now see examples of it all around the universe, in gravitational lensing.
Hawking's work does not obsolete Einstein's, since Hawking agrees with Einstein under most conditions.
[Einstein's work does not obsolete Newton's work on gravity, since Einstein agrees with Newton for most of the planets and comets (with a small correction for Mercury).
Newton's work on gravity does not obsolete Galileo's work on gravity, since Newton agrees with Galileo for objects which are falling in a vacuum near the surface of the Earth (or the Moon, or the Sun) - in other words, in most circumstances that are accessible to us.[/li][li]The laws of gravity that most of us learnt in high school are actually Galilieo's laws - they are easy to calculate, and somewhat easy to measure by dropping things off buildings. And if you are not into rocket science, you don't need Newton's laws; if you aren't doing cosmology, you don't need the curvature of space, either. Ridiculous and non-intuitive does not imply that it is useless or wrong.
PS: Unless the LHC suddenly produces a few quantum black holes in the next few years, Hawking is unlikely to receive a Nobel prize, since the rules dictate that the work must be verified and the award presented while the recipient is still alive. Einstein's work had the advantage that it made predictions that could be verified within our own solar system. (Astronomers hope to get their first peek at the galactic black hole over the next few months.)
Don't get me started...
today's internet-connected world allows for tools which locate copied content duh? what are you saying here?
So, please support your position with some factual content!
for that matter, nothing good has come out of 'modern physcis' as well, nothing at all!or can you name some?
The large amount of memory on our smart devices has been made possible by Electrically-Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EEPROM), a technology made possible by quantum tunneling.
Although the original Fowler-Nordheim equations were developed in 1928, the results of the theory were not very accurate in semiconductors until recent application of Schrödinger's Equations, for a thoroughly modern implementation.
Well I use E=mc2 at work most days, and the equation seems to hold well enough to diagnose and treat cancers.
And if it wasn't for the application of relativistic corrections to satellite time signals, I wouldn't be able to use GPS navigation to fly to the job.
Not too sure what you mean by "modern physics" but I find the depletion layer of semiconductor junctions very convenient for measuring the photons generated by my positron emission cameras,
and most patients seem to enjoy the benefits of superconducting magnets in my MRI machines.
Useless? Probably: whatever my machines diagnose, and however neatly the surgeons excise it (using one of those modern laser thingies, as described by that Einstein bloke) they will eventually die from something else.
Don't forget to reduce your electricity consumption by at least 20%. You don't want to be dependent on modern physics via nuclear power, after all.
The list of science topics and research you believe are fraudulent hoaxes is quite extensive, Omaughuntinaser. What do you think is the motive behind all these sinister plots?
you are right and a first I didn't believe it my self,One of the motives is indoctrination, so people won't think for themselves,so they can be better controlled.'science' is just an control tool. Designed when religion weren't that good any more for controlling people.I know it might sound bizarre, and is a whole other thread for that matter, but it really is not about if it is bizarre, strange, out there, etc etc. the only think that counts is, is it true? but for here and now I stick with the more then ridiculous relativity theorie.o and btw I don't believe them to be hoaxes, it is very easy to discover that they are hoaxes, but one need an open mind.
Are the people who instigate these scientific hoaxes working independently for their own reasons, or are they connected? For example, are the people perpetrating the vaccine hoax associated with the those disseminating false information about relativity? Are they aware that of each others deception, or are they, too, targets or dupes of the others hoax?
Theories should be obsolete !Why should people be happy with just a theory ?Thus when absolute explanations are being asked, absolute answers in general are not being given, since absolutes are consider to be of no importance. Thus we are stuck with "THEORIES".
A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that is acquired through the scientific method and repeatedly tested and confirmed through observation and experimentation.
oh and with regards to the MRI, this also was invented way before the relativity and quantum hoaxes.
The word "theory" in science has a different meaning from it's everyday-use where people say "theory" when they actually mean "hypothesis". Scientific theories have been repeatedly tested by experiment / observation ...
... anyone can figure out Einsteins Special Relativity entirely on their own. It is pure child's play.

The simplicity or complexity of a scientific theory is irrelevant, the only important property is : does it correspond with reality ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tests_of_general_relativityIf you think you have a "theory of everything" you're probably wrong ...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory_of_everything#Arguments_against_a_theory_of_everything
Sorry, I'm not into theories.
Quote from: NUFOIBSorry, I'm not into theories.I can kind of tell.The absolutes you want are simply not available to any empirically based system of knowledge. Science is nothing if not empirical. You might be disturbed by the fact that we never do "better" than "This theory has faced test after test and never been disproven." I think the track record of what humanity has learned in the past few centuries with this "imperfect" level of certainty is evidence enough of its utility.Of course, that notion of mine is another non-absolute (I don't even pretend it reaches the level of a theory), so I expect that it is in your eyes at least equally invalid as the products of science.
If you explore the simple idea of absolute motion, and this absolute motion takes place within an absolute 4 dimensional environment called Space-Time, your completely independent outcome is a complete understanding of Special Relativity along with a completely independent creation of all of the Special Relativity equations. No education in physics is required other than hearing of the idea that light is the fastest speed possible. Proof of this is found at http://goo.gl/fz4R0I ( 1 hour 39 min. total length )
Yes, Einstein's theories are obsolete,First, he stole a lot from other without referencing etc especially the works of Poincare en Lorenz. So, he plagiarized! That is, Einstein was a thief! a commen cheap thief.Furthermore, the theorie is completely wrong and there is really no need for it inequipment etc. There is NO experimental evidence what so ever that is right.For that matter, nothing good has come out yet of 'the so called 'modern physics'!Or can anyone name some?And yes I know the official fairy tales, but most are just plain simple wrong.So as far as I am concerned it is exit the relativity hoax and exit the whole of 'modern science' especially with regards to physics.
