Einstein, Who Intimated He Believed In God, Has His Original Theory of Relativity Displayed In Jerusalem for the First Time
Teresa Neumann : Mar 3, 2010 : Hillel Fendel - Israel National News
When asked if he accepted the historical existence of Jesus, the famous scientist once told George Sylvester Viereck in a 1929 interview: "Unquestionably. No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life. How different, for instance, is the impression which we receive from an account of legendary heroes of antiquity like Theseus. Theseus and other heroes of his type lack the authentic vitality of Jesus."
(Jerusalem, Israel)—Marking its jubilee year, the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities will be mounting a display of the original manuscript of Albert Einstein's Theory of General Relativity during this month of March, says a report in Israel National News.
According to the report, "Einstein donated the 46-page German-language manuscript to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem upon its establishment in 1925. This will be the first time that the complete, original manuscript outlining the foundation of general relativity will be on display. Einstein wrote it in his Berlin home in 1916."
Complete with explanatory notes, as well as the author's corrections and additions, the manuscript reportedly represents what the Israel Academy calls "the modern era's most important revolution in the conception of the universe—a revolution in how we think about space, time and gravity."
"The Theory of General Relativity led to a new understanding of the structure and development of the universe, and predicted the existence of black holes. Its significance is not only theoretical, however; it also led to critically important technological developments, including man's capability to determine a position anywhere on the planet by means of GPS (Global Positioning System) and to track the movements of distant spaceships."
