Submission + - Nikola Tesla Wasn't God and Thomas Edison Wasn't the Devil (forbes.com)

dsinc writes: Forbes' Alex Knapp writes about the Tesla idolatry and confusing his genius for godhood: "Tesla wasn’t an ignored god-hero. Thomas Edison wasn’t the devil. They were both brilliant, strong-willed men who helped build our modern world. They both did great things and awful things. They were both brilliantly right about some things and just as brilliantly wrong about others. They had foibles, quirks, passions, misunderstandings and moments of wonder."
