Re: Einstein and relativity (ScienceFan)

The link should rename itself to To me it is a load of rubbish.

The fact that someone may have written something years before is meaningless. By that criterion it could be claimed that the ancient Greeks discovered the atom: And they didn't.

Discovery has a far higher bar to climb over than that of idle speculation. And what Einstein contributed was a mathematical framework and predictions of how the theory could be tested.

Now if you wish to disparage Albert then there a far better way to do it and one far more likely rooted in reality. There is quite a bit of speculation that the genius in the family was, in fact, his wife.
