    Every once in a while someone claims that Einstein's theories are all wrong. While I don't advocate blind faith in canonical science, it must be admitted that experiment and observation support a significant portion of Mr. Einstein's theories. I'm sure some people disagree with Einstein's theories(which admittedly are strange beyond common experience0 from a lack of education more than anti-semitism. And most people just simply don't understand Einstein's work, especially special and general relativity. But for those who vehemently attack Mr. Einstein's work and generally can't back up such with any legitimate argument or thesis, hence this poll.

    There is a certain category of crackpots who dream of becoming famous by turning the world of physics upside down. Einstein is a common target, but Newton shows up as the target from time to time, as well. As you mentioned, relativity is not very intuitive or easy to grasp. Some people resent it for that reason.

    Thank's for the participation. I'm interested in poll results and the general opinion so I'm withholding my own.
