This quote demonstrates how wrong a genius can be. ;-) Maybe this was said after he had started to hang around with Yogi Bera.

    I suppose David DOES comprehend what poor Einstein could not. ;-) Interesting that a 'genius' is willing to admit that he 'does not know.' Too bad more people do not admit it instead of propping up shallow beliefs as truth, the world would be more peaceful.

    Could never give Einstein a thumbs down but obviously this before he never proved his unified field theory. To me that the universe is incomprehesible says nothing about the universe but everything about the inherent limitations of the human brain. If the words inconprehensible and comprehensible were reversed, at least in the ocntext of physics in 2006, it would be more accurate.

    The other quote does NOT say, "You will HEAR the truth and the truth will set you free." It says that you will KNOW the truth and the trutth will set you free. It will set you free when you know it, which also includes to believe it, and put it into practice. People HEAR the truth every day, but it does not free them until they KNOW it.
