Solar System knowledge was written in the Bible thousands of years before Capernicus. As was much of the basis for the beginning of modern medicine and sanitation, also thousands of years before "modern man" discovered it.

PR - It has to be Martin Luther King.




MLK was a communist and was all about creating class warfare and redistribution of wealth. He was taken out because he was rising to power and becamse very popular very quickly and would have taken political office and would have paved the way for serious damage to our country...sounds like someone ele we all know

Some no, more yes. When you deal with no absolutes, you have some level of error.

In what ways, yes?

Quantum mechanics
Gravity
Black holes

most of his biggest predictions, or areas where he clashed with other scientists...he turned out to be wrong.


I'm not saying that Einstein wasn't brilliant, but I don't see any case that could made for him being the most brilliant, that couldn't also be made for Hilbert, Riemann, or Lorentz.

King Solomon was he wisest man who ever lived. Just read proverbs and try to add something to it that hasn't been touched on to some degree. And don't try to say well he never talked about rocket science or quantum physics, I'm talking about the wisdom needed to suceed in day to day human life

 "Billy knew all the languages (approximately 200) of the world, and could translate among them instantly!"

Well that simply cannot be true.

He was fluent in every language on Earth?
