who discovered electricity



No he didn't.

Electricity was discovered by Englishman William Gilbert in 1600.

In fact the word " Electricity " was coined by Gilbert.

www.britannica.com...





The first modern Scientist. Benjamin Franklin.



No he wasn't.

That title would go to either Galileo or Robert Boyle.

Serious question. Who teaches you Americans this nonsense ?

Nice one mate.

Those are the terms and frames that were used in the newspapers of the day. And as such, his reputation world-wide persisted in just such a fashion as expressed in this thread. But yes we, much-more-enlightened, post moderns have corrected the records.

So is that your answer?

You would correct-the-record?

You rat Ignorance. Now you've ruined the end of the Spartacus movie for me. Does he get killed in the end like the other movie?

Ah, just like the other supposed great American inventor Thomas Edison. He is credited with loads of inventions. Notice I said credited there because he had a large team of real inventors working for him which he paid and then claimed patents on them. Therefore setting in concrete every American believing him to be the great inventor.

I am surprised that you didn't mention all the bodie parts found in the basement of Franklin's old house.

I think Ben Franklin may have been the only person on the planet that was, at the time, smarter than Jefferson. Although they were years apart in age.

Franklin was a profound man. One of those kind of guys you see maybe once every 500 years. Maybe 1000 years. A deep thinker whose thoughts are so profound and truthful they change the way those who interact with them think. This was absolutely Franklin.

I'd rank him in my top 10 "who i'd most like to meet".

slave rebellion . org / chronology


Now if one clicks on the link, views the chart, they will see for themselves. Three things happen after 1776.
    1. No longer is Personal Freedom listed as the AIM.
    2. There are now free states to flee to.
    3. The revolts/rebellions/plots where slavery persists become much much more violent





Slavery had been practiced in British North America from early colonial days, and was legal in all Thirteen Colonies at the time of the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

During and immediately following the Revolutionary War, abolitionist laws were passed in most Northern states and a movement developed to abolish slavery.

So.
Put one’s self in the shoes of a Younger Benjamin Franklin.

What would you have done, in the age of Slave Revolts?

I think we have a pretty clear picture of what he did. A lot of Entertaining , Theorizing, Organizing, and Inventing.



Did he do ok?
Would you have done differently?

I think, imho, to this day no one has made a movie, radio broadcast, stage play, or even written a book; that has done him Justice.

In the original Declaration of Independence
Thomas Jefferson was speaking to King George, the head of the British Empire, and listing grievances, and the most heinous one was deleted from the final draft. The charge that King George was inciting Slaves to rebel against Colonists.




Decades later Jefferson blamed the removal of the passage on delegates from South Carolina and Georgia and Northern delegates who represented merchants who were at the time actively involved in the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. Jefferson's original passage on slavery appears below.



He has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. This piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the Christian King of Great Britain. Determined to keep open a market where Men should be bought & sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or restrain this execrable commerce. And that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, by murdering the people on whom he has obtruded them: thus paying off former crimes committed again the Liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another.

The Deleted Passage of the Declaration of Independance




You read that right. British agents with the full knowledge and approval of the Crown were inciting slaves to rebel, commit these heinous crimes, just so the colonists pay in blood for the sin of the Crown in enslaving those people in the first place.

inciting slaves to rebel


If The Colonist hadn't carried out the heinous act of owning slaves in the first place, there would have been no slaves to entice.

Think about it.

One of my favourites is those who claim Tesla invented A.C. Current.

A.C. Current was first generated in 1832. That was 24 years before Tesla was born.
