Have you heard of Conservapedia? It's like Wikipedia for US right-wingers, guaranteed to be their version of politically correct. The article on Einsein's famous formula, E=mc2, is interesting. It says,
In fact, no theory has successfully unified the laws governing mass (i.e., gravity) with the laws governing light (i.e., electromagnetism), and numerous attempts to derive E=mc² in general from first principles have failed. Political pressure,[2] however, has since made it impossible for anyone pursuing an academic career in science to even question the validity of this nonsensical equation. Simply put, E=mc² is liberal claptrap.
As I said, interesting. Are they saying that atomic bombs go BANG by some completely different mechanism, and it's pure coincidence that they produce the exact amount of energy predicted by E=mc2? Or are they saying that atomic bombs don't go BANG at all?

Personally, I think it would be rather difficult to produce a working atomic bomb by relying on "claptrap".

Yes, interesting.
