Einstein's Relativity Manuscript Goes On Display
This morning I noticed as I was reading a few articles on the Internet that Albert Einstein's manuscript of his Theory of Relativity goes on display in Jerusalem. Einstein's General Theory of Relativity will be shown at the Israel Academy of Science And Humanities as part of the 50TH anniversary celebration. Click on the link to read the complete article.
Contrast this event in Israel with the fact that across the Ohio River from my home in Cincinnati, Ohio is the Creationist Museum in Northern Kentucky. Am I the only one that sees the irony in this? Jerusalem, the ancient city that is of such importance to three of the world's oldest religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, is the city where Einstein's papers are going on display in their entirety for the first time.
People can have faith, and should be free to practice their faith all over the world. But, bending science or using false science to justify their belief in the Bible at the expense of young minds, to me is a crime.
