Re: Gerolamo Cardano's (IQ 175) List of Top Geniuses

Yes, Thomas Bayes resonates a little in Hmolpedia: “People like Isaac Newton, Thomas Bayes, Kepler, Bacon, Leibniz, Faraday, Lord Kelvin, Max Planck and Einstein, were all men who saw no conflict between science and god.” — Bo Jinn (2013), Illogical Atheism (loc. 1676) Particularly in the MaxEnt sch...

Re: Gerolamo Cardano's (IQ 175) List of Top Geniuses

Yes, I’ll process those considerations. Presently, my mind is a little over-processed, with the migration in process (to make any adjustments); with the list now at about 1,100 geniuses.

“Swineshead’s intellect was ‘beyond the measure’ of human ingenuity’. — Julius Caesar Scaliger (c.1540), Publication; cited by Reijer Hooykaas (1976) in Fact, Faith, and Fiction in the Development of Science (pg. 138) According to Hooykaas, Cardano ordered his 12-person ranking as follows: 1.

Re: Gerolamo Cardano's (IQ 175) List of Top Geniuses

So far I can only get access to the following quote: “Yet he named, as the ten greatest intellects in history, men not overwhelmingly Christian: Archimedes, Aristotle, Euclid, Apollonius of Perga, Archytas of Tarentum, al Khwarizmi, al-Kindi, Geber, Duns Scotus, and Richard Swineshead, all …” — Will...
