The Battle of the Schlaflys
The lack of a single useful device developed based on any insights provided by the theory; no lives have been saved or helped, and the theory has not led to other useful theories and may have interfered with scientific progress. This stands in stark contrast with every verified theory of science. The only device based on relativity is the atom bomb, but that has destroyed far more lives than it's saved so it can hardly be considered useful.In contrast to this, Phyllis Schlafly is well known for saying:
The atomic bomb is a marvelous gift that was given to our country by a wise God.Also see my earlier speculations on the relevance of nuclear weapons to the God vs. Satan contest. (I won't more than mention nuclear power plants.)
On the one hand, this is an apparent embarrassment for conservatives. It's especially an embarrassment since the most important reason–that liberals used to cite Einstein's theory while defending moral relativism–is out of date. (I haven't seen that nonsense in years from the left.)
On the other hand, it helps counteract an embarrassment to Jews. I found it embarrassing that, of the three founders of much of what passes for modern thought (Darwin, Marx, and Freud), it's the gentile who still makes sense and the Jews who have been discredited. Now I can add a Jew who made sense (at least about physics) to these discussions.
