Quote frequently attributed to Lord Kelvin, mostly on Christian websites[edit]

"If you study science deep enough and long enough it will force you to believe in God." -- 08:03, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Does anybody know if "To measure is to know" is misattributed? -- 20:58, 10 November 2010 (UTC)


It says in the introduction of the article that Lord Kelvin was Scottish. The Wikipedia page for Lord Kelvin clearly states that he was born in Belfast and therefore could not be Scottish.

"Radio has no future"[edit]

That quote is usually attributed to him, but I could not find a primary source, and Radio does not cover it either. --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 06:37, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

"X-rays will prove to be a hoax"[edit]

As above, usually attributed to him, but no clear primary source. Sometimes the two are said to have been stated together. --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 06:45, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
