I also saw completely false information while reading through your links (text claiming that Maxwell invented special relativity) which is just stupid. I do agree however that some scientists should be even more popular and Maxwell is one of them, luckily he has been gaining popularity lately. He is that influential. But you can't take Einstein's mark away, no matter how much issues you guys have related to Albert or Jews in general. Albert himself said that he stood on the shoulders of Maxwell and they still shit on Albert calling him a thief. Pretty sad.
    Einstein without absolute tensor calculus, invented/discovered in the late 1800) by Ricci and Levi-Civita , could not have developed his theories....

    Not so much of what they did, but rather what they didn't do. The British Isles were a victim of the Germanic invasions which brought the Dark Ages; they didn't turn back the clock quite like early Germans did.

    I don't understand why Watt is on the top of the list.. He invented nothing.... nothing... nothing.. He had only used old technology without any improvement..

    It's a very materialist view of progress. Which is why I consider each "breakthrough" (IE a streamlining/reintegration of previous discoveries like electricity) to not warrant an overshadowing of previous millenia and historical regions. They look like branches rather than a trunk.

    Northern Europe, and to a smaller extent West/Southwest Europe, are the victors and have written history as such. We know each and every minor detail of our people compared to others who hadn't scene glory in those few centuries we rose to global prominence.

    Yeah, correct. But explaining such obvious stuff to that guy is an overkill. What I find more alarming is the fact he doesn't get how the general scientific progress works at all.

    I'd argue that Civilisation has been mostly measured materially, most of the awe surrounding the ancients is for their stone monuments/artwork/wealth, nobody seems to care that they were barbaric by modern standards. But that's only half the achievement of the modern West, evident in what I listed. The scientific understanding of life and the world (and to some extent the Universe) has gone from something very basic/non-existent, to a near complete picture in the last 500 years.

    Things like Animal Welfare, Social Welfare, the Abolition of Slavery, Egalitarianism, Environmentalism etc also set us apart from the Ancients/Medievals in a non-material way, to the point where they sometimes feel like another species.

    You really can't. It's basically a form of affirmative action or a handicap comparison, rewarding luck, circumstance, higher birth rates over actual hard work and intelligence.

    Whether or not we would have any sort of advanced mathematics without predecessors inventing gradeschool/highschool tier-level math, I don't think that makes the latter more praise worthy.
    The Guanche skulls as a whole are unlike those of modern European Mediterraneans, and resemble northern European series most closely, especially those in which a brachycephalic element is present, as in Burgundian and Alemanni series.
    divided them into clearly differentiated types, which include a Mediterranean, a Nordic, a "Guanche," and an Alpine. The "Guanche" accounts for 50 per cent of the whole on the four islands of Teneriffe, Gomera, Gran Canaria, and Hierro; the Nordic for 31 per cent, the Mediterranean for 13 per cent, and the Alpine
