There have been scams in the past based on quotes by Albert Einstein, some of the things he supposedly believed that allow people to achieve anything they want and some based on random stupid machines that he reportedly endorsed.
All lies of course.
This latest scam is definitely the dumbest of the lot.
The title of the email is “Thankfully, Einstein’s Brain was Stolen! Read Why!”
That should certainly warn anyone with their own brain that what follows can only be rubbish.
It goes on “Before he was cremated, pathologist Dr. Thomas Harvey stole his brain. And thanks to him, scientists studied his brain and discovered something EXTRAORDINARY.
They saw a brain unlike any human being born in this world. It’s size, shape, activity or performance, and its ability to harness potentials in all areas of his brain are truly remarkable.
Scientists studied further and conducted countless experiments to test if it’s possible to copy Einstein’s secrets and apply it to an ordinary human being.
The result is YES – it can be done and absolutely safe to practice”.
This is appallingly stupid. The scammer must want to catch people with an IQ less than their shoe size as anyone else would have been laughing too hard to continue reading.
Really? – find Einstein’s secrets by looking at his brain.
It is well documented that Einstein’s brain was measured and examined and the conclusion was that there were no signs of genius – the brain was entirely average. That’s true for all brains examined since.
Even if science did find anomalies in Einstein’s brain – you couldn’t replicate that in someone else.
Genius is elusive – as it should be.
