Some are to say the first scientist was Galileo, or others, the earliest i found was named
Abu Ali al-Hasan ibn al-Hasan ibn al-Haytham
Born in 965, in Egypt
The long-named motherfucker studied light and vision trying to test his hypotesis that "lights and colors do not blend in the air"
He conducted experiments during 10 years, but then he was stripped of his possesions and judged as a madman in Cairo, imprisoned by the rest of his life.
Surprisingly, his imprisonement cause a massive scientific revolution, being held back only when the church took over.
Guess the message his life carried out here is
"Think about your actions and who you are, do science, and speak your mind"
You never know, your actions can cause important revolutions/outrages like these.
...unless you're religious, then stfu.
