    I suppose this thread begs the question was it easier to make great discoveries in antiquity as the more obvious groundwork had to be done or was it more challenging as there was no framework on which to build or develop? Do later 'brilliant minds' have to work harder to push further or is it easier as they are adding layers to known knowledge? But then this is a poll so these will go answered :)

    Dude... Hawking is brilliant. If I am to be as frank as you just were, you're "theories" sound more like fantasy than much else, and convey a very poor understanding of reality. His books don't go into all the technical stuff because they're written for the layperson. You can still do research.

    i went with Socrates with his Socratic Method he helped form a basis for logical reasoning and problem solving and most future theorists used his method to come up with their theories so there fore i think he is the greatest mind
