This discussion is not for defaming girls but you have to admit boys are smarter

You girls will have to admit boys are smarter...........HOW well i will show you....In the present day we all are enjoying ourselves on mylot,orkut,other sites,going to discos,playing computer games etc.... isn't it????? now all this would not be possible if we still used to be like the stone age people. We have gone through a lot of scientific advancement which we owe to the great scientists...Actually the scientists and the mathematicians have made it possible for us today that we have computers,cars,televisions,etc. etc.. Now my logic behind saying boys are smarter or let us put it this way Boys are way ahead in intelligence compared to girls because I can name hundreds of MALE SCIENTISTS and Can u Girls name Even a hundred female Scientists...... Here is a few name i shall write down you people give me a few female scientists of their caliber..... THE names are Albert Einstein,Issac Newton,James Maxwell,Ampere,Joule,J.C.Bose,Satyendra Nath Bose,Archimedes,Laplace.etc. etc.... THe list will be endless... I will await responses

The very fact that your are a boy and you have started a discussion stating "This discussion is not for defaming girls but you have to admit boys are smarter" shows that guys are not smart enough

The name that you provide are from an age when women were supressed and not even allowed to work in restaurants...so ofcourse that society gave a lot of male smart people because women weren't allowed to join the club...but i will give you a couple of names though : Marie Curie.. Ana Aslan..Mata Hari..

Something tells me you are not going to get very far with this one. Generalizations are bad, especially when you pick one criteria to make the assessment on.

Pathetic discussion. Failed to take in account the centuries that women were not allowed to get the same level of education that man did. Failed to take in account the influence of church on limiting (to say the less) women role in society. Failed to research what present day women and men are doing in all the areas of knowledge. Failed to give any scientific base to support your claim.

the only thing i got out of this was that there are more Male scientist than female scientist and that makes boys smarter than girls..and thats the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard.. i think you should change this discussion to "Men are Better at Science than Women". i think both are equally smart, but in diffrent areas.

OKAY, just because there are a hundred male scientist you think that females are less smarter? This is dumb. and if you any smarter you'd know that women didn't have the liberty to take part in professions in earlier years. They used to get married at a young age and bear children. BUT still they couldn't be kept away from exploring, i am sure there are a hundred and over female scientist but just to name some few here : http://www.bios.niu.edu/wis/profiles.html Look at today's world, there are women working and taking care of their children, husband, homes etc etc, i don't think man could do any smarter job than that! :P IF YOU Were any smart you wouldn't start this kind of discussion in the first place without enough proof and reasoning.

how about some of these...and by the way I am a man Elizabeth Garrett Anderson 1836-1917...opened a childrens hospital in London, the first to be completely staffed by women Elizabeth Blackwell 1821-1910...founded the New York Infirmary for women and children as well as the first womens college to train doctors Marie Curie...no description necessary I could go on, but for a complete list go to www.factmonster.com/spot/whmbios2.html I think you'll find women have played a huge part in modern advances especially in medicine (alittle bit more important in my mind than discos and computer games)

this has been my most successfull discussion and it feels so good to poke the fighting nature in girls.....the fight like anything and have shown excellent tenacity... kudos to u all girls......but after all thsi and wat all girls said that the lack of famous sceintists in girls occured due to their lack of exposure to science in early times...so who were they oppressed by????? MEN.....becoz we are marter and smart people dominate lesser ones...so ur own logic is something that supports mine..

You are one big, Male Chauvinist PIG! Men opressed women, like the one above me said, cos they were afraid we'd take control, with their physical power. They 'physically' opressed and not intellectually, if we were encouraged we'd have turned better than them and they knew that.

So are you saying the only acceptable response is to name female scientists? Wikipedia.org has a list of female scientists if that's necessary. However, science is not the be all and end all of intelligence. What about intelligent thinkers, philosophers, writers, mathemeticians, just to name a few? Women are in all these fields. And, you seem to say that because you can name scientists that's definitive proof. You're not taking into account a few things. For one, there are up and coming women who are going into the scientific field who haven't had the chance to gain fame yet. And, that just because former female scientists don't have the same name recognition as males doesn't mean that they aren't as intelligent.

ooooh is that so??????? but my dear friend all the fun u have today,computers,internet,cars,tv,etc....is not due to the work writersor philosophers but pure scientists...and if the female scientists would be really so intelligent then their work would also have made them as famous as their male counterparts but it did not happen so you can now understand that in all th advancement of science males have played a bigger role......so talk through ur brain not ur mouth

see friend wemen are not allowed to take a profession seriously till the middle of 19th century even in the socalled scientifically and economically developed countries. when they are not allowed to partisipate in the race how can they get a price.

But, the fun I have with computers and television and whatnot aren't the only measure of intelligence. If that were true, than you might as well say there were no intelligent people until those things were invented. You honestly believe philosophy, literature, art, psychology, anthropology, history, and a wealth of other subjects have no merit in assessing the intelligence of a human being because they didn't lead to the invention of the television and the internet? And, it's a fallacy to say that intelligence is directly correlated to fame. Did you know the person who invented Kevlar which is used in bullet proof vests was a woman scientist, Stephanie Kwolek? Are you saying that doesn't show brains, just because her invention isn't fun (although Kevlar is used in outdoors gear which some people find fun) or because her name isn't a household one? Can you formulate an argument that goes beyond the fun we have here? You really can't use that as your only measure of intelligence, can you?

Ok buddy, who brought you into the world. Hum, I don't think it was a guy. If it wasn't for Albert Einstein, Issac Newton, James Maxwell, etc's mothers. They wouldn't be here. You can go on and on til your face turns blue. But men like you forget to give your mom's credit. That night/day you where conceived, she could of said she had a headache, lol.

this comment of urs is called a balchal arguement in our language...or rather baseless arguement..... god has given u that ability and we donot have that capability....so if u give birth to a scientist does not prove u r a bigger one...and similarly teh mom of a smart child need not be smarter than him or her....

".......god has given u that ability and we donot have that capability....so if u give birth to a scientist does not prove u r a bigger one...and similarly teh mom of a smart child need not be smarter than him or her" you FOOL! Mom's do not give birth to scientists ! They give birth to babies :P and with the mom's care and love and intelligence and smartness and etc etc they turn out to be big great people... they pass on their talents to their children... but i guess in your case your mom REALLY had a headache and decided to pass none to you ! :P

Albert Einstein-1879-1955 Isaac Newton-1643-1727 James Maxwell-1831-1879 Ampere-1775-1836 Joule-1818-1889 J.C. Bose-1858-1937 Satyendra Nath Bose-1894-1974 Archimedes-287 B.C.-212 B.C. Laplace-1749-1827 Perhaps before we continue this debate you could come up to date. That said we are still living in a world where a large percentage of the female population are not given the educational opportuities of males. None the less even in this horribly slanted playing field three women have won the Nobel Prize for chemistry, two for physics, and seven for physiology and medicine. You have started an interesting discussion here, but you really backed it up with any facts. Perhaps you could do that and give everyone a chance to respond in like.

Go mags31ca! I agree, the original poster of this topic missed the whole issue. Women were not allowed to be in these professions or were not taken seriously (they didn't have funding, they couldn't publish their research, they haven't been famous for their work) until very recently. Now institutions like MIT are graduating 53% males and 47% females. I can bet the poster that pretty soon women are going to be making as many advancements to science as males have in the past!!

i think you are one of those species who have somehow managed to continue till today from the stone age. if guys like you had their way, women's role would still be confined to wedding a man, bedding him and bear his children. you men are so full of conceit that even the children women give birth to, have to take your names. bear no illusion, women today are enjoying the fruits of liberalization not because men have suddenly become benevolent, but women have forced them to get up and take notice of women capabilities. men (& not humans) have ruled this world for more than 1000yrs but give women the future 1000yrs and i'm sure the list of women scientist would far outnumber your list.

The problem with your theory here is that you are listing all the "smart men" who lived in a time when women weren't allowed to be educated. They never got the oppurtunity to be educated. If women would have been given the oppurtunity in that time, and not locked into the stereotype that women should be teachers, nurses, or simply homemakers, then there would be an equal number of female scientists and geniuses. The fact that you didn't think your little theory through shows that you are apparently not one of those men who are smarter than women.

Also, saying that men are smarter than women simply because there are more men than women in a profession is a really bad analogy. Here's what you said sounds like: There are more female teachers than male teachers, so obviously females are better teachers, males should just find something else to do. There are more female nurses than male nurses, don't be a nurse, guys, you'll suck at it! There are more female stay at home parents than male, so don't even try to raise a child because it is OBVIOUS that you will fail. All of that is logical, no?

Hun, during those times, women weren't allowed to persue such careers. There have been countless records on how many women have tried, but have been pushed back. You CANNOT base your assumption because of society's faults.

If you are going to take all the credit for that does that mean that you will also take the credit for starting to destroy humanity. Examples obesity from watching to much TV. Vision problems, Lack of communication outside of the internet. Health problems for the children that play to many video games and don't play outside. Hey you want the credit then you must take all the problems that come along with it. Also remember behind every great man thier was women. That saying is out there for a reason.
