The Greatest Cover Up in the History of Science
- Boscovich's theory is the greatest theory in the History of Science; we can add up this claim by the following links:
The importance of this theory [of atoms] cannot be overstated. It has been said, for instance by Richard Feynman that atomic theory is the single most important theory in the history of science. This is due to the wide ranging implications that it has for both pure and applied science.
Two hundred years ago February 13, 1787 the Croatian Jesuit mathematician Roger Boscovich,S.J. died. He developed the first coherent description of atomic theory in his work Theoria Philosophiae Naturalis , which is one of the great attempts to understand the structure of the universe in a single idea.
The existence of atoms was proposed by the 5th century BCE Greek philosophers Democritus and Leucippus, and was taken as the basis for a rational world philosophy by the Epicureans. The greatest extant treatise on atomic theory and its implications for religion, human life, the existence of the soul, and death, is the De Rerum Natura ("On the Nature of the Universe") written in the 1st century BC by T. Lucretius Carus, known in English generally as Lucretius. Because Lucretius' poem exposed problems with the Christian concepts of an immortal soul (if the soul is composed of atoms, it must perforce perish upon death; therefore there is no afterlife), it was actively suppressed by Christian writers. Hence the concept disappeared until it was revived by Rudjer Boscovich in the 18th century, and after that applied to chemistry by John Dalton. Boscovich based his theory on classical mechanics and published it in 1758.
Yet ask most any scientist to name the Scientist responsible for the most important theory in the History of Science, and they wouldn't have heard of Boscovich.
This is like talking about Evolution Theory without mentioning Darwin, or talking about Gravity without mentioning Newton.
When it comes to talking about the most important theory in the History of Science there is a "Conspiracy of Silence" about mentioning whose theory it is.
This is How Great the COVERUP is.--- making it the Greatest CoverUp in the History of Science.
