Nietzsche is a good candidate, but I think Schrödinger would be most upset about being known primarily for the cat thing.

To be fair Schrödinger is known primarily by physicists for his equations. But yeah it’s pretty annoying that most people don’t get he was trying to say how absurd it was with the cat thing, he was being sarcastic.

My first thought was Einstein, since people get basically everything he wrote wrong, even many physicists do. Then after getting what he wrote wrong, they get all giddy about “Einstein was right!” Or “Einstein was wrong!” When the thing they are “proving” wasn’t even what he said.

I can’t believe that the weird religious people sending me chain emails would lie to me about what Einstein said/did with his atheist professor.
