Why am I not surprised?
Some say that Aristotle is partly to blame, too.
Nice trolling but I don't believe you're even a Christian, you're just too incoherent. If you do, what is your denomination? Evangelical? Charismatic?
Why would that surprise you? Users that come to a site for the sole purpose of preaching are not what I consider to be contributing members of the site.
wtf mcpon what did aristotle ever do to you
I think he said objects fall at a constant rate, and that the speed at which they fall depends on their weight...wrong and wrong.
Ahhh gotcha maybe I'm confusing him with Plato and Socrates, who are in fact cool.
Did Pythagoras do anything wrong or was he cool too
Pythagoras had some weird cult thing going on, and I think he refused to believe that some numbers are irrational.
Haha so much for Pythagorean Theorem then, LIKE I EVER EVEN USE IT lmao
It is because the Church took his theories as end-of-discussion authoritative, which stifled a lot of scientific research. The Galileo episode being the most famous example.
A fringe theory has it that Pythagoras, who coined philosophy, got the idea from Zoroastrianism.
The Pythagorean theorem is good, but it was known for centuries before his birth.
Fuck, Galileo sure got the short end of the stick didn't he. And fuck Pythagoras then, that fuckity fucker...
Nah, look where we are at with science. He might have had something to do with that.
Yeaaaaaaaaa no I know I meant while he was alive, didn't they burn him at the stake or something?
He got house arrest which isn't bad.
For 30 years, I think. But payback is hell...no one remembers the name of the idiot who condemned him, but everyone will remember the name Galileo for as long as there are people.
Stephen Hawkings called him the foremost responsible for the rise of modern science.
His are one of the shoulders Newton referred to when he said, "If I appear to see farther than others, it is because I stand on the shoulders of giants." I believe Descartes was the other shoulders, as he was the father of analytic (coordinate) geometry.
And many of them stood on the shoulders of Euclid, etc., directly or indirectly.
