It is quite annoying. I am looking forward to seeing his reaction to my (bruce) posts. Probably going to stick with Mithrandir as my new main though. Shall see.Still a bandodger, smh. you do not know what bandodging is, then. I suggest you educate yourself before you go around making brain dead statements like that.

If I could have included more I would have Or you could have made other selections? When did they allow you back on the site under this name? Recently. I was given a 30 day suspension that lasted 90. lol Anyways, who did you have in mind? Pasteur?
Newton came up with calculus. Without calculus, we wouldn't get a real understanding of force and the most fundamental material of physics could not happen and without that, would we have the technology we have today? Newton is definitely the most important (if not the greatest) scientist to ever live. Tesla would have been a close second. He was truly ahead of his time. If the Wardencliffe Tower had worked out, the world would be far more advanced.
Out of the one's on the list I'de probably go with Newton.
I wonder though, should Galileo be replaced with Copernicus? Copernicus came up with the idea of heliocentrism before Galileo, though maybe Galileo came up with better evidence. Galileo believed that Copernicus' theory was correct, If I recall, and I think Galileo was a century or so later than Copernicus.
Some other candidates I'de consider would be:
Carolus Linnaeus (aka Carolus a Linne, aka Karl von Linne) - binomial nomenclature.
Gregor Mendel- Mendelian genetics
Mons. Georges Lemaitre - Big Bang Theory
and as others have mentioned Nikola Tesla (I don't know much about him, but I think he had something to do with an electric generator or battery).
