28. This seems silly and revisionist.
"Why did the Nobel commitee not award Einstein the Nobel Prize for his work on relativity theory? Could it have been that all who were familiar with the facts, knew that Einstein did not originate the major concepts behind relativity theory?"

That is a major preumption made by somebody who doesn't work in the field. Getting through the Nobel committee is a political process, not one based in science.
