A parable for battling forensic experts : Albert Einstein’s “stalker” named Philipp Lenard

Read about Einstein vs. Lenard at the The Raw Story

This has a forensic ‘science’ connection, from a historical POV of long ago, but this quote…………

“The story of Philipp Lenard reminds us that even scientists of the very highest caliber sometimes think, speak and act in utterly unscientific ways, swayed by prejudices that have no scientific basis.”

……..does sound rather familiar. (read the first part on”conspiracy theories,”  the Innocence Projects releasing criminals back into society and then this one from a speaker at the last meeting of the Am Soc of Crime Lab Directors).
