Attacking Einstein… What’s next? Newton? Galileo?

Schlafly’s argument against Einstein appears to conflate relativity, a theory in physics about time, space and gravity, with relativism, a philosophical argument about morality and human experience having nothing to do with physics


He points to a 1989 article by liberal law professor Lawrence Tribe in the Harvard Law Review. Now widely disseminated on the internet, Tribe’s article uses relativity as a metaphor for understanding constitutional law. In the footnotes, Tribe thanks a man who was then the editor of the review: a law student named Barack Obama.

Hence, a liberal conspiracy

Gbur says that Schlafly uses a technique known in rhetoric as the “Gish Gallop” (named for biochemist Duane Tolbert Gish, a creationist debater who employed it), which Gbur defines as “throw as many claims out there as possible, regardless of the validity, with the realization that most people will be swayed by the amount of evidence and not look too closely at the details.” Schlafly piles on statement after statement, footnote after footnote, and even stacks impressive mathematical formulas and jargon to support his claims. Some of the references are simply self-references, and some have nothing to do with the argument.

Gish Gallop. I’m using that… :)

My guess would be whoever came up with the second law of thermodynamics. Entropy? THIS IS NIHILISM!

The Theory of Gravity: just another conspiracy concocted by liberul elitists in order to keep us down.
