## Messy700 - Newton predicts the deflection of light around the sun, something Einstein plagiarized as his 1911 prediction, without citing Newton. 1801 - Johann Georg von Soldner publishes his predictions which Einstein plagiarized as he predictions 114 years later, not citing Soldner in "his" 1915 paper. 1827 - 78 years before Einstein gets credit for it, Robert Brown in Scotland explains Brownian Movement. 1878 - James Maxwell in Scotland publishes Special Theory of Relativity in Encyclopedia Britannica which Einstein publishes as his own in 1905 without citing Maxwell. 1887 - Michelson-Morley experiment suggests there is no ether, an observation made by Einstein in his 1905 papers, with no cites to Michelson or Morley. 1888 - Heinrich Hertz publishes his paper on the photoelectric effect, a paper which Einstein failed to cite. 1889 - George Fitzgerald in Ireland publishes his paper about the theory of relativity, a paper which Einstein failed to cite. 1892 - Hendrik Lorentz in the Netherlands publishes the Lorentz Transformations. 1895 - At age 16, Einstein fails simple entrance exam to engineering school in Zurich. 1896 - At age 17, Einstein becomes a high school drop out, his German citizenship is revoked, and he enrolls in the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich. 1898 - Paul Gerber in Germany published the exact equations in Annalen der Physik (also in "Science of Mechanics", a book that Einstein is known to have studied) which Einstein published 17 years later in 1915 as his "perihelion motion of Mercury", in exactly the same journal, with no cites to Gerber, claiming that he was "in the dark", only to confess under pressure to his crime in 1920. 1898 - Poincare in France wrote the paper on the theory of relativity, which never mentions Einstein, which Einstein plagiarized as one of his 1905 papers without citing Poincare. 1900 - Max Planck and Wilhelm Wien of Germany develop the quantum theory which Einstein plagiarized as his "Light Quantum" paper in 1905, citing neither Planck nor Wien. 1901 - At age 22, after five years at Swiss Federal Polytechnic School, Einstein graduated with the lowest grade point average in the class, became a Swiss citizen, and got a job as technical assistant in the patent office. 1903 - Olinto de Pretto publishes E=mc^2 in Atte, a scientific magazine known to be read by Einstein, which he later claimed as his own work and which he failed to cite. 1904 - Friedrich Hasenohrl of Germany, citing J.J. Thomson of England and W. Kaufmann of Sweden, publishes E=mc^2 in same journal as Einstein plagiariazes as his own in 1905, failing to cite any of the three. 1905 - Philipp Eduard Anton von Lenard, whom Einstein's wife studied under, received a Nobel Prize for discovering the photo-electric effect, which Einstein plagiarizes the SAME year has "his" paper, with no reference to Lenard. 1905 - At age 26, while still at the patent office, he published 4 groundbreaking essays in the field of theoretical physics and quantum mechanics in Annalen der Physik, gaining him a Ph.D. from the University of Zurich. 1915 – November, 20 - David Hilbert presents his paper in Berlin, citing Marcel Grossmann, including precisely the same field equations that Einstein presented as his own 5 days later (2 weeks after it was known that Einstein had a copy of Hilbert's paper, but but Hilbert didn't have a copy of Einstein's paper). Dingle repudiated the special theory of relativity in 1972. 1915 – November, 25 - Einstein presents his paper and publishes the General Theory of Relativity based on the mathematics of Marcel Grossmann and Berhard Riemann, first to develop a sound non-Euclidean geometry, which is the basis of all mathematics used to describe relativity. Einstein failed to cite Grossman and Riemann. Einsteins 1905 papers…. Einstein, “Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Körper” (”On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies“), Annalen Der Physik (June 30, 1905).

Max Born ((11 December 1882 – 5 January 1970) was a German-British physicist and mathematician who was instrumental in the development of quantum mechanics.) On page 193 of his 1956 book “Physics in My Generation”, Pergamon Press, London, Max Born makes the following statement "[Einstein's] paper 'Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Koerper' in Annalen der Physik. . . contains not a single reference to previous literature. It gives you the impression of quite a new venture. But that is, of course, as I have tried to explain, not true." -- Max Born "All this was maintained by Poincare and others long before the time of Einstein, and one does injustice to truth in ascribing the discovery to him." -- Charles Nordmann "In point of fact, therefore, Poincare was not only the first to enunciate the principle, but he also discovered in Lorentz's work the necessary mathematical formulation of the principle. All this happened before Einstein's paper appeared." -- G. H. Keswani "Einstein's explanation is a dimensional disguise for Lorentz's. . . . Thus Einstein's theory is not a denial of, nor an alternative for, that of Lorentz. It is only a duplicate and disguise for it. . . . Einstein continually maintains that the theory of Lorentz is right, only he disagrees with his 'interpretation.' Is it not clear, therefore, that in this, as in other cases, Einstein's theory is merely a disguise for Lorentz's, the apparent disagreement about 'interpretation' being a matter of words only?" -- James Mackaye |
