Editor says, Please note the term semite is used to ampligy the offensiveness of this dogmatic puritanism and does not reflect the author's views. The term is used solely as a literary device to exagerrate the offensiveness of the claims. That Einstein could be discredited is not impossible, Wikipedia reas ~ 1917 was the year astronomers began taking Einstein up on his 1911 challenge from Prague. The Mount Wilson Observatory in California, U.S., published a solar spectroscopic analysis that showed no gravitational redshift. In 1918, the Lick Observatory, also in California, announced that they too had disproven Einstein's prediction, although their findings were not published. However, in May 1919, a team led by British astronomer Arthur Stanley Eddington claimed to have confirmed Einstein's prediction of gravitational deflection of starlight by the Sun while photographing a solar eclipse in Sobral, northern Brazil, and Pr?ncipe. On November 7, 1919, leading British newspaper The Times printed a banner headline that read: 'Revolution in Science - New Theory of the Universe - Newtonian Ideas Overthrown'.In an interview Nobel laureate Max Born praised general relativity as the 'greatest feat of human thinking about nature';fellow laureate Paul Dirac was quoted saying it was 'probably the greatest scientific discovery ever made'. In their excitement, the world media made Albert Einstein world-famous. Ironically, later examination of the photographs taken on the Eddington expedition showed that the experimental uncertainty was of about the same magnitude as the effect Eddington claimed to have demonstrated, and in 1962 a British expedition concluded that the method used was inherently unreliable. The deflection of light during a solar eclipse has, however, been more accurately measured (and confirmed) by later observations Editorial comments are entered in [light green] typeface.

Editor says, Asimov's Chronology of the World reads ~ "About 1650, James Ussher (1581-1656), a bishop of the Anglican church, also studied the Bible and came up with the year 4004 B.C. as the year of the creation of the world ... In that case, the year 2000 would be the year 6004 of the Christian Mundane Era.. By 1859, the British biologist, Charles Robert Darwin (1809-1882), had worked out a complex description of the mechanism by which life slowly changed its form in a 'biological evolution' under the driving force of natural selection".
