The fathers of computer science, including but not limited to Alan Turing, Charles Babbage, George Boole, Alonzo Church, Dennis Ritchie, as well as mathematicians like John von Neumann, and even visionaries like Jobs and Gates. It's hard for me to choose favorites.

Anyways I find myself actin like a female and investgating the personal bio of the geniuses moreso than their actual accomplishments; but then again that applies to errbody.

Augustine is the one I identify with the most.
Einstein's bio is intriguing.
Mises is the money system which I cherish
Feynman is my overall favorite physicist
The way Plato writes is far sexier than scrotumrates or fairystotle.
Hobbes has the most accurate portrayl of mankind.
Machiavelil's swagger was over 9000.
Edison's ingenuity reigns supreme.

one of the best writers on biology is the late Stephen Jay Gould. the guy easily puts Dawkins to shame as a writer and as a proliferator of ideas, while incorporating not a trace of the dogmatism that always leaves me with a bad, almost d*ckish, taste in my mouth after watching a Dawkins video. he was fascinated by the mundane taxonomy of all sciences, by the history of his field, by the egos that invade every branch of scientific study, and a whole host of other topics. i highly recommend finding a few articles by him, they'll take you 20 minutes to read on average, can be found in plentiful portions all over the net, and will give you a glimpse into his style of writing and mode of thought.

Holy sh!t.

Literally my exact same sentiments.

How well read are you on bio donks?

very very poorly read. i read stuff and forget it shortly afterwards. it's nothing that particularly interests me so none of it really sticks. i use it as a proxy to get at concepts that really stimulate my mind. that's why i like sjg so much, because i felt he did something similar. his passion was for paleontology and evolutionary theory and geology and the like... but his writing revealed a fascination with much more than merely the raw facts and it was those extrapolations from the facts, in language that bordered on poetry, that really tickled my fancy.

i'm only well read enough to detect blatant bullshit when i see it lol



shit i forgot about feynman, he's right up there with Carl on my physics list. had such a clear delight in discussing the issues, as well as a disdain for the folks who dumbed them down through analogy. just the smirk on his face whenever he spoke was totally contagious.

Nikola Tesla and Leonardo da Vinci.

Their futuristic ideas are something that have always inspired me greatly to think outside of the box. The fact that these two men were so brilliant when it comes to inventing things that had no chance of being produced in their respective eras, but were actually done hundreds of years after their death just blows my mind.

Their out of this world intelligence and creativity inspires me to work hard and try to create unbelievable things in order to advance humanity just like they did.

Albert Einstein. With Newton a close second.

But What Einstein did in 1905 was just retarded. Blew the lid off of everything.

1- Al Biruni (google him): if u consider his time, this guy was from outer space: he like founded 8 different sciences. And all what we know about him comes from only the 10 extant books written by him (of about 160 books he wrote)
2 -James Clerk Maxwell. I wonder what would he had achieved, if he didn't die in his forties.
3- George Bernard Shaw: I just love this guy.
