What is honesty, fairness, or high respect in the eyes of others? Honor. To me, honor means that a person has done something so respected and important, that that person and their act will continually be remembered throughout history.
Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Württemberg, Germany on March 14, 1879. Einstein was born into a highly religious Jewish family. He had one younger sibling, Maja Einstein, who was 2 years younger than him. Einstein played violin and enjoyed classical music more than anything as a young boy. He found it hard making friends because of a speech impediment that caused him to pause several times before getting a sentence out. Doctors described it as a “slow cadence” as he was figuring out how he wanted to say a certain sentence. As a child, Einstein questioned everything he could. One of the most popular stories is how Einstein was puzzled by the needle in a compass. He was in awe of the invisible forces moving the needle. This experience, and that of his beloved geometry book inspired him to write his first scientific paper at age 16.
Albert Einstein started receiving advanced tutoring lessons from a family friend in medical school in 1889. His tutor was named Max Talmud. Max taught Einstein math that was foreign to other kids his age. Max even taught the basics of philosophy to the ten year old

Franklin Roosevelt could not take the risk of Germany developing such a weapon before the United States. In 1940 a select group of people, including several members of the FBI, were told to help construct the atomic bomb. People were suspicious of Einstein’s involvement with the Nazi’s and he was not told of this invitation. Leader of the FBI, Edgar Hoover, went as far as to have him deported from America, but he was already a US citizen and the US State Department overruled the

...Astronomy Notes: People & Accomplishments: Plato (428/7 B.C.E. – 328/7 B.C.E.) – Greek Philosopher, a student of Socrates, and teacher of Aristotle. Taught of the “World of Forms;” the idea that the material world (the earth) is made of nothing but imperfect copies of what was imagined to be perfect. Also, the perfect World of Forms (heavens) was where ideas, thoughts, concepts, imagination, reason, etc. exists. The seven planets ((in order; Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn) were intangible gods; therefore, they were part of the World of Forms. Plato taught that when people acted on perfect ideas (i.e., built stuff), the outcome, in the material world, must be imperfect. [Socrates taught of metaphysics, the study of what is real versus what we think is real but isn’t.] Aristotle (384 B.C.E. – 322 B.C.E.) – Greek philosopher and mathematician and a student of Plato. Credited when the early teaching of the scientific method (questioning, predicting outcomes, classifying/ organizing data, drawing conclusions founded in logic). Aristotle taught of the Universe existing in two realms. The Terrestrial Realm consisted of all material objects. All material objects, or matter, were made of combinations of the four elements (earth, air, fire, and water). Matter was classified by common physical properties (density, hot vs. cold, wet vs. dry). Comets were thought to be atmospheric phenomena, and part of the Terrestrial Realm (changes in the tail of a......

A Research About Stephen Hawkings

...Hawking contra Philosophy Christopher Norris presents a case for the defence. Stephen Hawking recently fluttered the academic dovecotes by writing in his new book The Grand Design – and repeating to an eager company of interviewers and journalists – that philosophy as practised nowadays is a waste of time and philosophers a waste of space. More precisely, he wrote that philosophy is ‘dead’ since it hasn’t kept up with the latest developments in science, especially theoretical physics. In earlier times – Hawking conceded – philosophers not only tried to keep up but sometimes made significant scientific contributions of their own. However they were now, in so far as they had any influence at all, just an obstacle to progress through their endless going-on about the same old issues of truth, knowledge, the problem of induction, and so forth. Had philosophers just paid a bit more attention to the scientific literature they would have gathered that these were no longer live issues for anyone remotely au fait with the latest thinking. Then their options would be either to shut up shop and cease the charade called ‘philosophy of science’ or else to carry on and invite further ridicule for their head-in-the-sand attitude. Predictably enough the journalists went off to find themselves media-friendly philosophers – not hard to do nowadays – who would argue the contrary case in a suitably vigorous way. On the whole the responses, or those that I came across, seemed overly anxious to......
