Misnomer

Electrical engineering relies not on science or technology, but is rather a historical religious phenomenon that was a product of a certain cultural context and drew on Islamic notions of the Qur'an, Medieval interpretations of neo-Platonic philosophy and reacted against the formalized architecture of rabbinical teachings characterized by the Mishnah.

The previous sentence is every bit as accurate as the characterization of Kabbalah that, according to this article, Madonna and presumably others have cottoned onto.

And Ohm's Law can be repealed when the historical/religious dialogue begins to question the linear relationship between energy (volts) and rate of electron measurement (current)...

( One of my fellow students in Circuits 1 class said his political cause was the repealing Ohm's Law...I haven't heard much about it since then. )
