Why is Isaac Newton held in such high regard?

As opposed to Leibniz?

Only edgy high school pop sci kids think Newton was genius. He wasn't. All he did was inventing middle school concepts of math and physics. He did this in the dark ages but nowadays every 14 year old is supposed to be smarter than him.

So you don't think Newton was a genius (compared to his contemporaries)?

Try reading some of what he wrote.

>(compared to his contemporaries)

Compared to his contemporaries any non-retard was a genius. In his century the majority was religious.

I don't have time. Could you explain a little more?

Because he took credit for Leibniz's invention of the calculator.

Yeah, but compared to your contemporaries, you're no genius.

>His book Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica ("Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy"), first published in 1687, laid the foundations for most of classical mechanics. Newton also made seminal contributions to optics and, as mathematician, he shares credit with Gottfried Leibniz for the invention of the infinitesimal calculus.

>Newton's Principia formulated the laws of motion and universal gravitation that dominated scientists' view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. It also demonstrated that the motion of objects on the Earth and that of celestial bodies could be described by the same principles. By deriving Kepler's laws of planetary motion from his mathematical description of gravity, Newton removed the last doubts about the validity of the heliocentric model of the cosmos.

You know, stuff just anybody could do.
