This version has the naughty bits:
And here's the Revised Standard Version:
I couldn't disagree with you more. Many people have been ridiculed by the "established" scientific community and have been found to be right later on (Einstein, Galileo, etc.)
By the time Einstein came around, it was obvious that Newtonian and Maxwellian physics were incompatible. Look up the Lortentz-Fitzgerald Contraction. The concept of the "Ether." Michelson-Morley. Etc. For Pete's sake, man, read up on the subject before you post. What wasn't clear was whether or not Einstein was right. Subsequent experiments have shown that he was.
Rule of thumb... Isn't that the rule that says a man can beat his wife with a stick as long as it's no thicker than his thumb?
Ever notice that even the busiest people are never too busy to tell you just how busy they are?
