: : : : blackholes dont attract light you numb-nuts! the gravitational pull of a black hole is so powerful : : : nothing can escape from it not even light,although hawkings says that they emit radiation. so he contradicts himself dosent he? .

: light and radiation are two differnt things bud! : Einstein not only was right,but he didn't even know he was right the numbers could be wrong but the theory was sound

You're both nuts. Light is electromgnetic radiation. And his name is "Hawking" not "Hawkings"

For your information, even Einstein himself in his later years admitted that some of the consequences of (special and general) relativity bothered him and he may have been on the wrong tarck after all.

For the record, there are physicists (even mathematical phycists) that feel that Einstein was in fact dead wrong, and that all of the issues that led to relativity (Michelson-Morely, action-at-a-distance, etc) can be explained in another way, and in fact, the alternate views have fit better into quantum theory and QED.

Read about it. One guy is Dr. Robert Carroll.
