Also, this is a pretty good video if you're into dunking on Newton (although he gets some sick burns in too)

@matt that is a reasonable point. I really should read up more on the history of chemistry in the enlightenment era (and before), I feel like progress was very non-linear, and it wasn't until we had guys like Lavoiser and Pasteur that it could be considered a science. It's still remarkable to me that Newton spent half his life on alchemy and was probably pretty terrible at it/gave himself mercury poisoning

Hello! Is it is required, or just strongly recommended, that we set renaissance paintings as our profile themes?
