This is actually fake.

Stop putting words into dead peoples' places where their mouths used to be.

What he actually said was:

"It has become appallingly clear that our technology has surpassed our humanity."

Bye bye.

PS. it took less than a second to google this. I suggest the rest of the people who are completely dazzled and amazed by this bullshit thread start doing their own research.

Actually I knew the quote was inaccurate but didn't feel the need to harass the OP. They are just stating it from their memory and it's the thought that counts. Maybe it's how they interpret it duh! Not everyone is perfect. They just opened the door to discussion and research.

Why be so quick to give someone crap? I'd channel that anger and desire for perfection into something constructive. Not trying to insult the people here. Are you perfect? Thats a rhetoric question btw NO ONE IS :-)

I did know that smart ass. I was just quoting the article.


it is often linked to Albert Einstein. Einstein did say "It has become appallingly clear that our technology has surpassed our humanity" when he was questioned about the atomic bomb. (source: 2010, The Ultimate Quotable Einstein, Edited by Alice Calaprice, Princeton University Press, Princeton, New Jersey.

That has NOTHING to do with what I stated.

You don't know what they are doing by altering peoples(like Einstein's) words.

They want to shape history as they deem fit, not as history is.

I have a problem with that. You might not.

Why do I have a problem? Because there are ALWAYS ulterior motives when people start falsifying quotes.

Notice how it says "idiots" in the quote? Who would that galvinize?

Before you know it, Einstein was a fully devout Christian. Why? Because some retarded quote said so and I was too lazy to look it up. Because some retarded quote said so and the retarded quote got copy pasted millions of times and I was too lazy to challenge it.

There is no anger or desire for perfection here...that's why I'm not the delusional one. oh and about perfect, here's a quote for you:

"Things are perfect as they are, however they could always be better."

Ok I see what you mean. I just thought you were trying to be nasty and I see so much of that here. I think you could have been a little bit nicer and just posted the real quote or something. I love Einsteins quotes I'm fairly certain I've read them all. I don't know if people mean to twist quotes (maybe some do for an agenda) but certainly not the vast majority I think a lot of people just have bad memories or they repeat it how they understand it they simplify an otherwise complex or complicated quotation. I was not trying to be snappy with you I just wanted you to see you were being a little bit mean in my opinion.

Re: Albert Einstein's Fear...
Einstein is a real favourite for misquoting.
Many people seem to think he was an Authority On Everything.

I wonder if that includes his views on politics, considering his socialist leanings.

He was well worded that's probably why and came off as kind and accepting. I am more interested lately in Tesla because of free energy.
