I chose Galileo is a previous posting and here's a small snippet from that particular post.
His results were derived from a meticulous mathematical process of testing, and to be completely honest, all experiments scientific, anthropological, political, environmental, etc, go through stringent mathematical models to arrive at several theories. So to call him a conservative would be blatant excuse for an insult. He was an innovator and didn’t hide behind the views of the church, which makes me respect him even more.
Now I want to know why you chose a particular person. Please post your responses here. If you so choose, you can email me the response, however I'd really like if you added your opinions on the blog.
