If both Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein are still alive today, imagine the world we will be living in and the impact on all theories of physics! Can you imagine what the world will be like with them still around?
It was Tesla/Westinghouse vs. Edison.Unlikely since nothing Tesla did would have had any direct impact on the oil companies. You're falling for a crackpot legend that defames a man who really was a great scientist.
That said, his feud with Edison/Westinghouse was a big issue at the time...
No, I mean did Newton ever publish Principia Religiosa, or some such work?“Newton’s religious writings constitute more than half of his entire written work” (2004, 430:819)
Brumfiel, Geoff (2004), “Newton’s Religious Screeds Get Online Airing,” Nature, 430:819, August 19.
The fact that you have no interest in a particular field of study does not make it nonsense.Newton wrote more on religion than on science, and later in life turned to deciphering bible code. If he were alive today would have written volumes of nonsense.

Someone should alert Dan Brown.I'm not sure how much of his religious work he published, he wasn't a famous theologian. But he did manage to predict the end of the world in 2066
Or are you saying the current geniuses make Newton and Einstein look like drops in the ocean, or do you mean the opposite?What a silly thread. The likes of Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein still exist. Today's scientific scene is much richer and wider however, making the contributions of those people seem like drops in the ocean.

I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.
I don't think there's any distinction between "current geniuses" and "Newton and Einstein". Both had excellent contributions but there wouldn't have been any change in science without their existence. Newton himself said:
So, there would have been no change at all if they existed now. They would have been living lives like all other dedicated researchers.
