Famous-Scientists.net is devoted to acknowledging the
movers and shakers throughout history who advanced our world society
for the common good. As a website devoted to famous scientists,
the purpose here is to both enlighten and entertain.
For instance, the top portions of the web pages are devoted to
delivering factual information about the notable scientists, while
the bottom portions, or the "rumor has it" part is devoted
to nothing more than bald face lies, misinformation, chicanery
The most famous scientists throughout history it must
be noted had, for the most part, wonderful senses of humor. Besides
contributing greatly to the various areas of science such as astronomy,
biology, physics, mathematics and chemistry, the people outlined
on this site also contributed with their wit, humor and general
appreciation of the lighter elements of life.
It must be noted that some of the most noteworthy scientists
ever produced in this world had the most driest and delicious
senses of humor themselves. From earth-shaking and world shattering
discoveries, inventions and theories that changed nations and
minds, these individuals have done more to enlighten Man that
perhaps any other group that has lived.
The biographies of the scientists listed here have brought us
out of the Dark Ages and into an age of scientific inquiry, methodology
and insight based upon fact, observation and repeatable experimentation.
From Copernicus to Darwin to Edison, the world would be remiss
to struggle in absurdity without the contributions of the scientific
minds such as these.
From telescopes to phonographs to telephones to photographs to
cell phones to seismographs, each scientific invention had a huge
impact in advancing the interests of worldwide civilization.
By removing a handful of the inventors from the tomes of history,
this world would be a much different place. And, one must not
forget that scientific impact influences social impact so the
fabric of society would not be what it is today without a few
of the notables throughout history.
Check out the revolutionaries, visionaries and futurists listed
throughout these pages and come back often as there will be new
additions added frequently. Science rocks and our future depends
