The discovery of Cherenkov Radiation won Pavel Alekseyevich Cherenkov the Nobel Prize in 1958.
But no matter what the personal demons that affronted these men were, their accomplishments work. To deny this fact is to embrace ignorance. Can their accomplishments be exceeded? Yes! Absolutely! That is what science does! Someday I am sure that Einsteins musings will lead to a new theory more inclusive of all phenomena, just as his work expanded Newton's work.
Sadly not everyone sees it that way, there seems to be a resurgence of "since I can't understand it, it's all baloney" going around. And some things, sure, there is room for questioning, but some tried and true, repeatable and falsifiable facts, you just can't ignore that.

None of these people ever claimed any moral superiority or God-like status.
I'd think that Gandhi, Mandela or Mother Teresa would be greater subjects as moral beings, especially as they are often described as saints.
Mandela was a terrorist, that's why he spent many years on robin island, or whatever it was called.
Albert Einstein's theory of relativity has stood the test of time and a recent study by an international team of astronomers and 7,000 light years of space have once again proved he's been right all along.Scientists measured bursts of energy from a super-dense neutron star to put the General Theory of Relativity, which was first published in 1915, through its toughest test yet. According to the study, which was published in the April 26 issue of Science, the experiment showed gravity crumpled spacetime in just the way Albert Einstein predicted in his theory.
