Actually, Einstein also had an odd disdain for the law of gravity as taught
by Newton.  Your thoughts here are interesting.  Could you possibly
find some quotes or references for me please.  I have been unable to
find any real errors in the MLs as to science, and they did make one
significant prediction--that some stars will be found by sound before
they are seen visually.
