Greatest Thinker Showdown! Round 3

Post by tuttle » Wed Jan 23, 2019 8:33 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 4

Your Thinkers battling it out for Round 3 are:

A) DL Jake vs CS Lewis

Image vs Image


B) Aristotle vs King Solomon

Image vs Image


C) Isaac Newton vs Leonardo da Vinci

Image vs Image


D) Thomas Aquinas vs Craig Ferguson

I'm beginning to question how CPS thinks about thinkers.

I'm just doing this for John Boy. My normal ridiculous tournaments happen during march madness. I dont' vote, I just set things up.

You all are kooky.

Yes... quite. :)

With this latest information, though, I think we should start more science threads.
