    Some of the statements about physics attributed to Kelvin are:

    Of Physics

                  "In science there is only physics; all the rest is stamp
    collecting."

                  "There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now, All that
    remains is more and more precise measurement."

                  "X-rays will prove to be a hoax."

                  "I accept no theory of gravitation. Present science has no right
    to attempt to explain gravitation. We know nothing about it. We simply know
    NOTHING about it."

    I wonder if these things are true or fokelore.
