Everyone's heard of e=mc2, right? It's Einsteins theory for the conversion of energy to matter. So, why can't we change matter to energy? We can by using a slightly different formula, m=c2/e. Okay, lets do some math here. With fractions, the higher the denominator is, the lower the fraction itself is. So, therefore, the higher the energy is, the lower the matter is. Let's have e=infinity, for the infinite possibilities for it. Having e being the greatest number possible, m must be the lowest, so m=0. Easy right? Wrong.Let's put it into the famed equation. Here, I'll make it easier and have infinity be ~. E=~ and m=0, so the equation will be ~=0(c2), but 0 multiplied by anything is 0, making ~=0. What the heck?! Can someone help me? Please?

M=E/C^2 ; you messed up the math.

Actually, Einstein's theory IS for the conversion of matter into energy, hence energy is by itself on one side of the equation.

Personally, I would state it simply shows the relationship between mass and energy is directly proportional as c is a constant. Conversion to or from is represented by rearranging the terms.
More interestingly perhaps: c^2 = e / m.

I remember seeing quite abit about Einstein not actually being very smart when it came to science.... Apparently his wife wrote alot of his papers and he was the goof ball sort of scientist... She was in the same class as E and then married where she, as a woman scientist in a man's field, could not make claims that he could and therefore made these claims through Albert's voice. She actually did all the work...
Here's a good one on E's copy skills...

Your also saying that energy is infinite. Energy is not infinite it dies or halts somewhere in it's lifetime. That's why we need generators to produce energy from matter, but then the matter runs out and we're are eventually left with nothing.
but please do not take away from this man's great accomplishments.
