1 is a Christian fundamentalist nutcase who is convinced that -- in his view -- since Einstein and God can't both be right, Einstein has to be wrong. In his field, he's brilliant. But outside his field, he's a bit of a laughingstock. He has spent years writing "scholarly" papers attempting to prove that Einstein's math is wrong and the papers get rejected when his OWN math (and logic) turns out to be not only wrong, but wrong headedly wrong.

And each time he's proven wrong, he simply says, "Einstein can't be right, and some day I'll prove it."

Interesting, since Einstein was a also believer in God.

Also a better mathematician than your fundamentalist friend

OTOH, Hawking seems to think that God does indeed play dice with the Universe contrary to what Einstein believed. http://www.hawking.org.uk/lectures/dice.html

So Einstein was indeed wrong, at least in one area.

But not in the way your fundamentalist friend thinks.
