Quote# 34488

Many people around the world worship the e=mc[^]2 formula and worship Einstein for that formula which says that the energy produced by an amount of gold is the same energy produced by the same amount of lead: Al last, the lead become gold, the old dream of the Alchemists!. With 1 gram of sand one can produce the energy that produce 1 gram of Uranium!. Isn't that marvelous?

In his letter to President Roosevelt - August 1939, Einstein clearly shows that the above formula is just a fraud, he didn't encouraged Roosevelt to use water, sand, garbage or paper, but just the very specific element URANIUM:

You don't know science.

"Many people around the world worship the e-mc[2] formula..."

Name one!

"...and worship Einstein for that formula..."

Seriously, lay off the drugs for a while.

Mass-energy equivalence does not work that way.

Not only does this person not grasp relativity (or even nuclear science), he/she does not even properly understand the term "worship."

STFU retard!

Try taking some science classes. (and not from your mommy either)

E=mc^2 describes, among other things, nuclear reactions and calculates the amount of energy released from fusion and fission reactions.

It doesn't turn lead into gold dumbass.

And Uranium was, and still is, used in such reactions because it is unstable enough to be turned into an energy source (read:bomb).

You are correct. Einstein wrote to Roosevelt about what would happen if you split a uranium atom. Roosevelt setup the Manhattan project to build a bomb based on Einstein's notes.

And look what happened! The fact that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were reduced to smoldering radioactive ruins in a matter of seconds is undeniable proof that Einstein was right. If he was wrong then the bombs never would have worked and the US would have had to physically invade Japan.

On everything else you're just so god damned uniformed and stupid that it hurts.

This is so incredibly stupid. How did this person ever figure out how to host a webpage, much less turn his computer on...?!

Crap! He took the Red Pill! Quickly get me a stomach and brain pump.

I know all those words, but the way they're arranged makes no sense at all.

Didn't do too well in physics, did you?

2/4/2008 6:54:16 PM


This statement has absolutely no connection with reality whatsoever-it hurts.

Quantum Mechanic

And it's E^2 = P^2*c^2 + M^2*c^4

C=Speed of light in a vacuum

nowhere does the formula have anything to do with gold/lead/sand/uranium

these are different things and have different properties

I think this is a new level of Epic Fail.

2/4/2008 7:08:41 PM


What the hell?! I am that much stupider for reading this.

2/4/2008 7:11:34 PM


You moron. If we had so much gold then it would no longer be precious. Just look at aluminium. It was more precious than gold in the days of Napoleon. To him our use of it as wrapping material would be "madness".

Einstein provided the equation as a way to liberate energy from radioactive compounds as a source of power.

Which we do use today... For that purpose. Not to transmute stuff because that is very very expensive to use all that energy for forming trinkets of gold.

Einstein knew his business. This clown doesn't.

Protip: Alchemy =/= nuclear physics.

Back to remedial science class!

Doctor Whom

Well, gosh, you know more about the subject than all of my physics professors combined, don't you?

(Oh, and as for the different versions of the equation, let's not confuse rest mass with relativistic mass.)

2/4/2008 7:40:13 PM


WTF?? Do you even know what that formula means? It has nothing to do with lead, gold, or alchemy.

Oh fuck it, I could generally explain this to a 5 year old, but this one's not even working at that level.

Now to go worship to my alter of mathematical formulas.

2/4/2008 7:47:52 PM


I suppose, in theory, 1g of silicon dioxide (let's keep it simple) could produce as much energy as 1g or uranium... if you had a way of making it turn completely from matter into energy.

Incidentally, it is possible (through different means to utilising Einstein's equation, which would have little if any impact) to transmute other chemicals into gold, but the process is so difficult and costly you could only make a loss. I do recall that a sample of gold was produced from another element. That element, though, was platinum.

When Iran figures out how to make an atomic bomb out of sand we'll be in real trouble.
