Einstein published his theory of relativity in 1905  which stated that time and space do not exist with  out humans to measure them.  He thought that  matter was a form of energy, and his work lead to  the atom bomb.  People didn’t accept his ideas of  the bat because everyone believed in Newton’s  mechanical universe.
