2. E=MC3

It really depends on the criteria. In some very obvious aspects he was one of the smartest people to have walked this Earth but in others he was well bellow average.
For instance, while he was amazing at high other abstract math, he couldn't do simple addition and subtraction in his head. His memory was so poor that if he didn't immediately write down notes he would forget what he was doing.
When he was in grade school, his teachers actually thought he was retarded and wanted to put him in a specialized program.
I would argue if we are looking for one of the smartest people, a well rounded genius would be more appropriate. For instance Divinci. He was an advanced thinker in everything from engineering to art and philosophy. Truly and extraordinary mind.

May i ask you a question.Where did you got this info?

Well if it wouldnt be by ALBERT EINSTEIN, we wouldnt have nuclear wepons.Only because supposabley he wasnt very good at math doesnt mean he was "retarded".He was smart,very smart.In 1922 Einstein was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics[42], "for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect". This refers to his 1905 paper on the photoelectric effect: "On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light", which was well supported by the experimental evidence by that time. The presentation speech began by mentioning "his theory of relativity [which had] been the subject of lively debate in philosophical circles [and] also has astrophysical implications which are being rigorously examined at the present time." (Einstein 1923) As stipulated in their 1919 divorce settlement, Einstein gave the Nobel prize money to his first wife, Mileva Marić

It's common knowledge. He's one website http://www.tostepharmd.net...
If you put Einstein and retarded in Google you'll get circa 390,000 hits.
Actually he layed the theoretical groundwork for the atomic bomb. The ones that actually took that theory and engineered the first working bomb was the Peenem´┐Żnde scientists who started working for the Allies after the fall of Germany. While theoretically he was amazing, he couldn't build a birdhouse.
