Poll: Albert Einstein VS Leonardo da Vinci (36 votes)

Albert Einstein 50%
Leonardo da Vinci 50%

Who's more intelligent and why?

#1 Edited by KingRobbStark (166 posts) - - Show Bio

I hate it when people compare two different people. Especially two great minds who pursued different subjects.

I abstained from voting.

I'm gonna abstain from abstaining.

And I vote Einstein because he made a bomb. Leonardo dum Vinci never made a bomb. And all my measurements of great people are based on whether they made a bomb or bombed someone.

I'll take the Polymath... Leo

They weren't in the same fields of work.

Technically speaking from a purely biological framework they are both the exact same guy. At least thats what DNA tests confirm beyond a 98.97 percent chance. Leonardo was supposed to have drawn up plans for a very advanced and complicated time machine, which was hidden and kept secret until a highly decorated and valued young scientist Albert Einstein was given highly classified documents that once belonged to Leonardo. Using those plans to create a working and functional time machine, Albert traveled to the past to realize that he was Leonardo all along. Its also said to be around this time that he invented Twitter and the Playstation 7. Incidentally Albert and Leonardo are also Henry Cavendish. Cavendish has the best feats out of three personas however he does not have a mutated ninja orientated turtle like creature named after him which is a sad but grim fact of reality.

This is like when people ask who's smarter Bruce Wayne or Tony Stark, both are geniuses, just in different fields

This.

Although perhaps they mean who contributed more or who is more effective (lol Tony by FAARRRRRR)

Da Vinci was more inventive considering the time he was from. He was way ahead of his time. Not saying Einstein wasn't, but da Vinci just impresses me more.

The problem with Einstein is even though he was smart and figured something important out his contributions were contributions that other people working on and would have come about anyways around that time...

Leonardo daVinci's contributions aren't known and were ahead of his time so a lot of it wasn't implemented properly and that's just his engineering work. When you take into account his biological work and such his contributions would not have come from someone else if he didn't exist and our world would be vastly different.

Also when you take into account that greater breadth of knowledge tends to make you more intelligent and that daVinci clearly has a greater breadth, I think it's pretty clear he is more intelligent, perhaps not as "smart" by a small margin but definitely more intelligent.

This is just wrong in so many ways..... he was a pacifist, was never part of the Manhattan project..... Also Da Vinci designed multiple weapons (including ones that used explosives). He technically was closer to building a bomb than Einstein ever was... your own logic is flawed. *facepalm*

I voted Leonard Di Piero Da Vinci. The guy was probably the greatest mind the world has, and ever will, see. He had talent beyond anything, and an insatiable curiosity. He instinctively understood concepts like Bernouli's principle and aerodynamics, explosives, engineering and mechanics,at a time when really the human race was only just beginning to understand these things at all.... He is by far one of the greatest people in the history of the world. Mathematically, he was also a genius for his time. His contributions to the world of art, biology, engineering, even war.... the man was truly one of a kind. This isn't a sleight on Einstein... I just can't consider him in the same league as Da Vinci (to be fair, I don't consider anyone in the league of Da Vinci)

This. Strangely close to what I was about to type. I'd add Da Vinci also had a broader knowledge of things in general.

Leonardo Da vinci is a million times better.

Einstein steals others work and combines within his own nonsensical garbage that he can't demonstrate happening in the real world at all. Guess-work that can't work every single time and twisting basic concepts into something they are not: No, I'm not a fan of Einstein.

Everything Einstein said in his theories is based on the idea that the universe has a speed limit which is disproven in a handful of observations. Telsa and Newton's work are way better and beneficial. Einstein Supposed "work" is just a bunch of gobbledy-gook meant to look cool to people who are unfamiliar with science and basic universal concepts.

And no, he is not responsible for the atomic bomb. The atomic bomb is just poking a stick(pressurizing) at unstable chemicals and watching the chain reaction explosion commence. Basic chemistry stuff. Nothing new. The significance in it is that people figured out better ways to do it and even then he wasn't anywhere near soley responsible for that.

@dccomicsrule2011: Yes Yes. I know he was an polymath, painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. :P

@dum529001: Excuse me, but Einstein made huge contributions to physics, from black body radiation, to his work with plank to begin quantum physics, to pretty much all of relativity.

And please, in what way shape or form was Einstein wrong about a cosmic speed limit? I'd love to hear the nobel-wothy insight that would turn all of modern physics on it's head.

And really? Just because atomic theory is common sense now doesn't mean it wasn't revolutionary at the time. I guess piaget's work in psychology was all weak because it is now in 101 textbooks?

Da Vinci, because he's Italian.

Seriously though, I picked him only because considering the time he lived, he had almost nothing to go on. Einstein could arguably been the same, had he lived back then. Also, every great scientist worth their salt recognises they've all stood on the shoulders of great scientists before them. It's an awkward poll.
