[A fundie wildly misunderstanding that the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelson-Morley_experiment" target="_blank">Michelson-Morley experiment</a> provides evidence against a luminiferous aether, not that the earth doesn't move at all]
Albert Einstein had never existed he would have to be invented . . . and here is the reason why!!
The Michelson-Morley experiment was the reason for Albert Einstein!!
Beginning in 1887, U.S. scientist Albert Abraham Michelson began to do experiments to try and detect the motion of the earth around the sun by using the speed of light as a barometer. This experiment was called the Michelson-Morley experiment and was famous for one thing: ALL THE RESULTS WERE NEGATIVE.
"To his utter amazement, the experiment produced a zero effect. Michelson could find no drag on the transmission of light in any direction. He detected only the slightest shift in the interference fringes. Both halves of the split single beam of light were returning at virtually the same instant.
The data were almost unbelievable. The so-called ether wind had had no effect whatever on the velocity of light whether the beam was traveling with the "wind" or across it. There was only one other possible conclusion to draw—that the earth was at rest.
