Ooh, you’re in the sciences, so I can ask this: who do you think invented calculus, Newton or Leibniz?

You know, the scientific method is set up in such a way that the scientist is replaceable. You see this time and time again, when a scientific finding is obvious (given prior knowledge), then it will be “invented” several times by different people ^^. Especially in times when worldwide scientific communication and reporting was less effective, this happened a lot. Of course the scientist people themselves would really like to think that they’re brilliant and irreplaceable xD
