Proving Einstein wrong : The rebel fish


“If you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree then it will live it’s whole life believing it is stupid.


I think Einstein has made a mistake here.

Now let me prove it.

The fish knows it is a fish. it is the human judging the fish.

The quote should say :

“If you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree then

It will live it’s whole life believing you are stupid”

As you are the one who is judging the fish stupidly.

In your face,Einstein.

The fish would not accept or even be aware of your judgment of it.

Who else demonstrated that Einstein was wrong today?

I can also categorically state that fish do not garner any self-worth from their tree climbing ability.

They are not depressed or affected by any human judgment.

It is the catching,cooking and eating that affects them the most.


if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree

This guy Einstein seems hopeless in my opinion.

  1. I have to disagree with you there. Countless numbers of fish and other forms of marine life are affected daily by human judgment. Now you may argue that no, they’re only affected by human actions. And I see your point, really I do. But what underlies & inspires our actions? Our beliefs. Our opinions. Our desires. Our judgment. So when we judge that it’s necessary and acceptable to dump millions of pounds of pollutants and intoxicants into the air and the oceans daily, then our judgment causes the actions that affect the fish. And beachgoers struggling to breathe due to the toxic red tide. Change the judgment, change the actions. Thanks for playing!

  2. Fish and tree aside, the first part—’Everybody is a genius’—contradicts another one of his quotes, which I agree with: ‘Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.’
    If Einstein were here today he’d probably say that human stupidity is evident in that few dare challenge his words. They just accept them because he, a genius, said them. Didn’t he say ‘question everything’?
