Here is the list of guests from left to right
J. Robert Oppenheimer
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Tyson and Dawkins seem like a stretch.
As “disciples of science” I think Tyson and Dawkins are a good addition. Tyson is probably more familiar to the younger generation though with his work on Nova and frequent guest appearances on the daily show and the colbert report. One negative side effect of this attempt at humor is it kind of lives up the stereotype/projection of religious fundies that science is somehow itself a religion. Beyond that potential misuse I found it rather clever.
I like Tyson, but look at the other names on the list. There’s no such thing as Tysonian Physics, the Tyson Model of the Universe, Tysonization to kill bacteria. Tysons is not the unit of measure for anything besides insanity in heavyweight boxers. Hardly a Descartes or Euler.
That’s not Tyson, it’s Reverend Ike.
Why not Stephen Gould or Buckminster Fuller?
Tyson, Sagan and Dawkins are absolutely not at the level of the other people.
Important missing scientists are Fermi, Dirac and Heisenberg
Not to mention two other extraordinary researchers, Albert Sabin and Jonas Salk, whose work has been of incalculable benefit to humankind.
I am sure Einstein can invite who ever the fuck he likes. Stop being so God damn critical and enjoy the picture for what is is.
Well!! (clutching my pearls).
As long as Newton, Gallileo, and Darwin are in the shot…Einstein was a fraud. Why the f**k else would he have said, “The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.” Had he given credit where it was due, I could forgive him. He was a tool, a puppet, and his English sucked. Screw anyone who says otherwise.
