Speaking of ignorance, Einstein was a relatively successful physicist before he was a patent clerk.shintashi said:chroot.. first let me say that such a statement as
"Since you so openly admit that you've only had one year of high-school physics, why on earth do you think you're competent to produce your own theories? "
is one of the most ignorant, biased statements I have ever seen. It is elitist, nonconstructive, and completely politically incorrect.
A person's mind is like a sponge. If they fill their heads with nonsense, they have little room for new ideas. there is a saying " you can't teach an old dog new tricks". Some of the greatest minds of our time were miserable failures in school. Examples include founders of major philosophies and religions, the CEO of Kinkos, Einstein....
Yes, the mind is like a sponge. For some reason, some people in their teens choose to fill that sponge with crap and thats how crackpots are born. urtalkinstupid and beatrix kiddo may just be getting their rocks off here, but they're doing a good job making it look like they are on their way.
