    Default Hypatia; First female scientist

    Although The word of Scientist does not refer any gender separation; there was not any female 1600 years ago. Hypatia was the first recorded female scientist her accepted birthday was April 22 .Please let me introduce her to you.

    She was the frontier and needed to be recognized.
    There was a woman at Alexandria named Hypatia, daughter of the philosopher Theon, who made such attainments in literature and science, as to far surpass all the philosophers of her own time. Having succeeded to the school of Plato and Plotinus, she explained the principles of philosophy to her auditors, many of whom came from a distance to receive her instructions. On account of the self-possession and ease of manner which she had acquired in consequence of the cultivation of her mind, she not infrequently appeared in public in the presence of the magistrates. Neither did she feel abashed in going to an assembly of men. For all men on account of her extraordinary dignity and virtue admired her the more.

    Love and Peace

    And as per usual, those who felt threatened by her were the end of her.
    I long to see the end of the madness of abraham and his two children, islam and christianity.

    Hypatia has long been a heroine of mine, but I never knew until this moment that we shared the same birthday... Thank you for posting this, it's like a gift to me
    There's a film about her life called Agora, which is definitely worth watching:

    Happy Birthday Hypatia!

    Her death, I believe, is regarded as the end of the old world and the beginning of the, then, new age of Christianity. I believe the story is that some wacky Christian was put up to it. He aroused the insanity of group of people and the skin was scrapped from her body with shells and then she was burned. Its a horrifying story. But now, we are at the end of another age....I only hope we have learned from history.
