    It's said that there were only 3 new ideas in the 20th century, but I can only remember one: The theory of relativity. Everything else was the application of these three ideas or older ideas. Does anyone know the other two?

    That should pretty much tell you that the quote is bullshit. I don't think I've ever had a religion professor that wasn't a few cards short.

    No, actually just the opposite. Products of quantum physics, relativity is the theory of the very, cosmic-scale large. Add to the new thoughts: M & string theory, and there may come a time when it's accepted
    that all theories are the same thing on different scales. String and M theory have just about tied the two extreems (quantum and relativity) together.....just about. The equation that finally proves the reason for creation, may end up being only a few figures long. Much like the E=mc2 that albert came up with.

    Well, most of my research was focused on vintage 70s porn. So I guess I may have come to a wrong conclusion or two.

    You'r kinda right. IDB porn met up with VCR's in 1975 with the betamax. That seems to be when KY and magnetic tape became part of IDB history.;)
