It is a made up story.
Just another example of a christian with nothing positive to say unless it coincides somehow with his belief system.
Shame, really. You can learn a lot about our modern world by reading a biography of Tesla.
Remember this guy invented more things than just about anyone else. Many things that are still in use today. It's only when he wanted to champion free energy that the establishment ,(and Westinghouse), shunned him and called him a crackpot,etc. So they took all his good ideas that could make them rich quickly and then turfed the guy. But they didn't kill him...oh no. That would've drawn even more attenttion to this remarkeable guy, who singlehandedly forged the roads in science to better production of electricity, amongst other things.
Get positive, RJHinds, you just fall in with half of the christian posters on here that, unless they are linked to the bible or christianity, they are not worth getting into. Why even bother responding? you think poo-pooing other peoples ideas outside of christianity is in any way helpful or constructive?
What gets me is how you could consider yourself a reasonable contributor to these forums. Yes you contribute a lot, but I see so much hot air and not much off your own bat.
