    Not that “smart” appears to be the best adjective to describe anyone who fails to realise that a theory is “wrong” after more than 30 years.

  2. “It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with experiment, it’s wrong.” – Richard P. Feynman
