Greatest Philosophies, Theories, and Scientific Studies

Listing of the greatest philosophies / theories / scientific studies of the universe!

The Top Ten

1 Theory of Evolution - Charles Darwin

What many people don't know is Charles Darwin did not create the theory of evolution. He did, however, create the theory of natural selection, which is a major part of the much bigger theory of evolution. Some even say that he did not create the theory of natural selection, because it is known of another scientist that was doing the same thing Darwin was doing at the exact same time, so no one knows who came up with the idea first. If Darwin didn't come up with it, then he surely popularized the theory, - Alpha101

A theory that begin to lose his value. Questions like ; If we really came from apes why are there still apes now who doesn't change after millions of years? DNA tests of the oldest found humans are different than the oldest found apes and so many other questions ( organisms in water... ) that cannot be proven by this theory. Many sees this theory as an idea of blind faith ( wich is true because it's not an exact science ).

Chunky D was pretty smart.

Darwin wasn't a philosopher, and he certainly wasn't a scientist.
His specialty was fantasy.

2 Buddhism - Lord BUDDHA

Perfect philosophy by the most perfect man ever existed in the universe. Buddha was the first scientist of the world. He got enlightened, understood the concept of the universe and the inner mind and devoted his life to spread his knowledge and establish peace in the world. - Philosopher

I have always adored his philosophy, and while I do not believe in reincarnation, I try my best to live by his teachings. He will forever be known as one of the best philosophers in history, and for good reason. - Alpha101

3 The General Theory of Relativity - Albert Einstein

Greatest Theory by a smartest man. - Philosopher

4 Theory of Quantum mechanics - Albert Einstein

Another greatest theory by the smartest person ever lived. - Philosopher

Unlike relativity, the origin of quantum mechanics cannot be attributed to any one scientist. Rather multiple scientists contributed to a foundation of principles of the quantum mechanics. The most important are Max Planck, Niels Bohr, Erwin Schrödinger, Werner Heisenberg and more recent Roger Penrose. The concept about Einstein's light-photons (that is part of quantum mechanics ) were a paper he wrote but not a development of a theory or a speculative proof.

8 A Brief History of Time - Stephen Hawking

Your "current smartest human" has declared that "something can come from nothing," and that this absurdity can be "proven mathematically."
It can be "proven mathematically" also that bumble bees can't fly.
Problem is, of course, THEY CAN.
Theoretical physicists, particularly of the astro variety, make a nice living asserting (often tripe) as fact, which can never be proved.
But those incapable of critical thought not only take them at their word, but gush over them to the point of pathetic worship.

Greatest scientific explanation of the universe by the current smartest human. - Philosopher

9 Pholosophies of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle

Philosophies of 3 great thinkers - Philosopher

Plato's philosophy. ( quote by Alfred North Whitehead ).

The safest general characterization of philosophical tradition is that it concists of a series of footnotes to Plato's philosophy ( Quote by Alfred North Whitehead ).

Scientific work of one of the smartest woman ever existed. - Philosopher

This is not a theory ( theory comes from the greek word theorema wich means speculative knowledge ).
Radioactivity is a proven scientific fact!

The Contenders

11 Philosophy of Karl Marx

You must admit, whether you like or dislike communism, that it is an interesting concept, and, if done correctly, could make the best government in the world. But, sadly, people pervert his ideas and create societies in which no one has any freedom, and individuality is looked down upon. Capitalism might be immoral, but at least it works. Every single communist country in history has been horrible. Almost every capitalist country has strived. - Alpha101

Capitalism is not inherently "immoral." Crony capitalism (a.k.a. fascism), mercantilism---these are inherently evil. Socialism, "if done correctly, could be the best government in the world? " No. This is an old canard often cited by people who don't know what they're talking about.

12 Theories of Archimedes and Pythagoras
13 Philosophy of Nikola Tesla
14 Philosophy of Beinsa Douno - Peter Deunov
15 Philosophy of Nickel Hala
16 LaVeyan Satanism - Anton LaVey
17 National Socialism - Adolf Hitler

I like the concept of this, except for the anti-semitic policies. Mein Kampf was also a great book in explaining this, whether you hate the author or not.

Wheter it's national socialism, fascisme, communisme or even democratic socialism, they will always turn into a totalitarian system because the key word to those systems is " the state is you, not you are the state ".
