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.
doglover: Religion is like a sport for your mind.
missdiminutive: Enjoy your scientific, intellectual and technological dark age, you fundamentalist wingnuts.
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.
James F. Campbell: doglover: Issac Newtonwas kind of batshiat crazy.
RatOmeter: Who was the dimwit who first said "god particle"? They need a good shin kicking.
