You are correct. It indeed seems that this A.Einstein quote is a hoax - I quick checked it with google and it backed up your statement. Yep, I guess I
was stupid because I didn't notice that the comment didn't even relate to his expertise; but he wasn't humanist either, yet he is claimed to say:
"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe."
. What does he know about human stupidity?
Should I take this as false statement also?
(just joking there) That Einstein quote has been repeated even in mainstream
Now that this has been exposed however, I must ask myself why to make out such a rumor.. To make it sound like prophetical and hence more sinister? To
give the statement credibility? In my view this 'trick' eats a way most credibility from the statement, yet I can comprehend that disappearance of
bees could be catastrophic. I'm sorry that I have fallen to this trick and actually typed it down on my thread; apologies.
Anyway, I wouldn't just yet rule out the cell phone theory as the successful industries have tendency to manipulate the scientific work.. Remember
tobacco industry? Many 'scientific researches' claimed that smoking won't cause a cancer etc. I will probably one day have to go on to bee's nest
myself and place my cellphone inside and see if they flee the nest -
there's scientific research for ya.

thread and ask him (I'm new to ATS so not sure how it works..).
Welcome, I'm not too old ATS:er myself, but enjoyed the atmosphere so far. And thank you for offering your help, I might contact you if I come across
with questions regarding your father's expertise. Good info you posted too. Thanks.
