Re: The Theory of Relativity is Wrong.
Come to think of it Newton's background doesn't come across as that impressive either!?
An illegitimate son of a farmer, an unsuccessful shepherd by profession and then alchemist who had probably poisoned himself with mercury in the process before finally trying his hand at science.
Some claim Newton had plagiarised Robert Hooke as far as the Law of Universal Gravitation was concerned.
Also a number of mathematicians in Europe were dabbling in calculus before Newton got there.
However I'm sure its not just Einstein and Newton either and that much the same could be said of all the great scientists and even all the great politicians, generals, saints etc, etc there have ever been.
