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)

One thing did come to mind, is that if Cardano was the inheritor of the Da Vinci collected works, why didn't he list Vinci in the top 12?

Further information to support the Al Khwarizmi (IQ 175) estimate, as he is titled both the Father of the Algorithm and the Father of Algebra.

I finally obtained a copy of a full English translation Cardano's On the Subtlety of Things; and have made the following progress:

and have all 19 of his mentioned names either mentioned with is (Cardano 12:#) stats, and or slated:

I have not, although, did any re-ranking of names, e.g. Khwarizmi or Kindi, in the "main list of 1100+ names", as I am still in the processing stage on that.
