Greatest Thinker Showdown! Round 2B

Post by tuttle » Fri Jan 18, 2019 8:55 am

READ THIS BEFORE YOU VOTE!!!

Thinkers are going head to head (hyuk, hyuk) in the bracket. (ie. Plato vs Aristotle) so choose one hero from each letter. (Choose ONE Thinker from the A) category, ONE Thinker from the B) and so on). If you mess up and pick two from the same category, you should be able to change your vote to correct it. Clear as mud? Ask if you have any questions.

Please use this forum to vote and to lobby for your favorite Thinkers above. Winners move on to Round 3

Your Thinkers battling it out for Round 2 (B) are:

A) Albert Einstein vs Isaac Newton

Image vs Image



B) Nikola Tesla vs Leonardo da Vinci

Image vs Image



C) Thomas Aquinas vs Bernard Lonergan

Image vs Image



D) Lewis Grizzard vs Craig Ferguson

Watching the results of these polls, I remain unenamored of democracy. I'd have liked to see the results of a literacy test, frankly. :lol:
I am also of the opinion that the Jesuits should be suppressed.

I know. It's Saint Thomas Aquinas, OP, Doctor of the Church. I dunno anymore, Jim. Long haired hippies running around, culturally appropriating Catholic saints. It's sad.
