Kristine Barnett won't soon forget the "most devastating day in the life" of her son.

Jacob, called "Jake," her then 3-year-old, had recently stopped talking and had been diagnosed with autism. One day, she dropped him off at a gymnastics class, and, when she returned to pick him up, Barnett, 36, says she found all the other students sitting in a circle, while Jake was curled up and cowering in a corner.

Anyone else irked by how people keep saying he has a higher IQ than Einstein? First and foremost, their respective scores could be completely incompatible depending on the test. And even if he were more intelligent than Einstein, what matters is how he applies that intelligence. Einstein's theories have endured for decades.

I don't care if this kid is developing his own theory of relativity. Once he actually has something published and peer reviewed, I might, but until then, just shut up and stop acting like he is going to topple Einstein's theories. Einstein's theories have significant weight behind them from decades of review and testing. What does this kid have? Conjecture and that is that.
