ps my spelling. no time to check. as for maths, its a development in many places lar. cant solely say who invented it. what i meant was major developments that could be clearly credited and still have uses in modern world.
certainly dy/dx didnt come from them
what does "chemistry" have to do with relativity, quantum physics or gravity? let's not shift the goal post here conveniently when you earlier made statements that everything we did today was related to these 3 things.
it's so sad when people think that the development of science is a single-sided effort by the western world, and despite evidence to the contrary, will insist non-stop that china has produced nothing of use to modern society. perhaps western influences have blinded us so much that we think that china is really that backward and is only filled with farmers who farm and grow rice for the world.

Btw, many of the Compass in the modern world is still water base.
i don't know if you will get it when you come.. hopefully not. i think after the first year here the singaporeans just laugh at it because it's quite funny.
that said, a lot of them are nice people as well, really open-minded, etc.. and they respect chinese culture and how it has contributed to the world as well. TCM is quite applauded by a lot of westerners actually. it's a very different approach.
newton's laws govern the worldy state of affairs. at least at the normal day level.
and einstein's relativity governs the heavens. big massive objects.
chem's model of atoms are based on quantum mechanics.
newton governs ur acceleration, velocity and cars speeding.
einstein is incharge of ur gps system.
i dun worship western culture. afterall, i am part of a very traditional chinese family. i'm just irritated at how ppl can put each others culture down.
and china's westerner bashing movies are top on my hit list.
and next would be george bush jr.
you might want to take a look at "charles wilson's war", "hotel rwanda" to name a few. they do it indirectly, but the message is so very clear.
michael moore is a leader of bashing his own country as well.
maybe if you stop watching all the popular movies in singapore that get heavy advertising because of cheap appeal, you will get to look at the bigger picture.
A good read on how US stand on film maker. That why most film portrait US as world hero even at a expense on altering history.
the best joke I had saw was the ending of movie "black hawk down".

TS, good to read up some history and facts, and see things beyond the surface.
hi bro, i do understand that your latter comments in this thread takes a clearer and even position but be cautious when putting first post comments like what you did......... it borders on inflamatory
p/s no qualms about the rest of your comments

As China is become more powerful, the west particular USA sees her as a potiential enemy. Read this, and you will find that the US no longer sees the former Soviet Union is no longer a threat...
Even a game has changed opponent.
Sadly, but truth is either some countries are too jealous of China, or just out another film to make big bucks at the expense of another country's reputation.
