Why are you still holding to this blatant falsehood, then telling people you edited it to reflect the actual facts?

We aren't talking about the same post. I was talking about when I quoted post 129.

You did not edit 130. A simple glance will show that.

Yep, old Stein really spread the love around to his family that is....

Einstein was a goof.

It seems that he did edit his first post on Einstein.... but the edit did not change the assertions that he dumped his first wife to go after her cousin and then that cousin's daughter.

The edit dropped the comment about being a thief but then added material about him supporting socialist views.

So... I'm left with standing by my original claim that his post differs from Wiki, which said that he married his cousin, not his first wife's cousin. As well, wiki claims that they were married until she died. There is no mention that he dumped the cousin for the cousins daughter.

I frankly don't know who has their facts straight, but am prone to trust wiki who provides some attribution over a forum poster who doesn't.

How did you edit my post? Is that even possible on this forum?

And... I have not said that you should edit any post... I've simply said that the facts that you presented and continue to present... differ from wiki.

I don't know who is right or wrong... the only thing i know, is that you have not attributed your facts whereas wiki has? I'm simply puzzled that if Einstein married his cousin and they lived in marriage until her death, where does he flipped her off in trade for her daughter as you still claim way back early in this thread?

Do you understand what I did?

I edited your post to reflect reality. You still donít get it either.

Yes, I can edit your post when I quote it. That is what I did because your post was flawed. Your post that I edited basically states your facts are wiki facts and my facts come out of my arse when Iíve given you a few of many links describing Einsteinís flawed character.

Wiki is garbage unless you need something very basic.

Just the fact I had to spoon feed this too you says something not quite positive.

And it seems that you don't 'get' that editing a quoted post (if it contains the poster's name) is against the forum rules.

Now I know, thanks. It doesn’t contain his name I don’t think?

A real name or his ‘handle’ ?

You are welcome. A number of people have been 'dinged' for doing such!

(I believe you can modify someone's quote - but it mustn't be attributed to them, as they didn't write it.)

I kinda get it. I made no bones about what I did and why. It was not to embarrass or cause ridicule.

Just trying to make a point.
