(Yahoo)   Pakistan's late Nobel-winning physicist who predicted the Higgs particle is a national hero. Just kidding; he's been erased from their textbooks for not being Islamic enough   ( divider line

doglover: Yes, blame all religions. Giovanni Caselli, Rene Descartes, Michael Faraday, and Issac Newton were all worthless and contributed nothing to the world because of their religious practices. Oh wait, the opposite of that.

You not think good. He not say that. He say religion persecute some people, not religious people contribute nothing.

Enjoy your scientific, intellectual and technological dark age, you fundamentalist wingnuts.

Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

They are just upset that a Muslim predicted something that is essential for Catholicism. After all, you can't have Mass without Higgs bosons.

AverageAmericanGuy: WhyteRaven74: AverageAmericanGuy: How many American Nobel laureates are named in modern American textbooks?

Well, if you stick with prize winners born in the US, then all of the literature winners are at least mentioned if not read in high school, most of the peace prize winners are standard parts of US history texts because of either what got them the Peace Prize or because they were big deals otherwise. A few might only show up in side bars in certain texts on account of winning the prize so there's that. As for all the other subjects, well economics texts mention a lot of the winners in part because at least for the first couple decades the prize was offered, they were big deals in the field. A few also show up in non-econ texts. As for the other fields, the winners of the physics prize are pretty darn well represented in various texts. Which leaves chemistry and medicine/physiology, where it's a bit dicey.

Maybe if you went to Exeter.

Doug Exeter?

Hey India, could you please just steamroll over Pakistan already? You know you want to, and besides, no one likes those duplicitous Pakis anymore.

James F. Campbell: doglover: Issac Newton

was kind of batshiat crazy.

All the best people are. Do you know what they're doing at CERN? Nothing any sane person would care about. Smashing ions together at 99.9 c to create insane matter states is ludicrous! And we found the YO MOMMA particle, too. THROW THE SWITCH IGOR! MWA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

Genius is crazy.

As in every facet of human existence, asshats are the problem. Unfortunately, Pakistan seems to be about 90% asshat.

RatOmeter: Who was the dimwit who first said "god particle"? They need a good shin kicking.

Nobel Prize winner Leon Lederman, after his publisher wouldn't let him call it the goddamn particle. Was the title of his book, The God Particle: If the Universe is the Answer, What is the Question?

SoothinglyDeranged: This is the sad reality of our world. The persecution of some of our most brilliant minds because *insert religious bullshiat here*

Alan Turing
Galileo Galilei
et alia

Yes, blame all religions. Giovanni Caselli, Rene Descartes, Michael Faraday, and Issac Newton were all worthless and contributed nothing to the world because of their religious practices. Oh wait, the opposite of that.

Religion is like a sport for your mind. A Buddhist monk can focus on one thing so powerfully he doesn't even make a peep if you light him on fire with gasoline. I doubt most people could give themselves a blister on the stove while meditating without crying out in pain. Other religions have their merit, as well.

The problem isn't religion as a whole, but rather the people who take it too seriously. Just like everything else, moderation is the key. The Muslims in America are the guys who show up in the jerseys and root for the home team. The Muslims in Pakistan are the guys who start the football riots where people die. They need a serious dose of lighten the fark up in their lives.
