Biologianists are clearly teh awesome. :cool:
I think that just about sums it up.

It doesn't matter, anyway. Physics is the art of knowing what maths is important, and throwing away the rest of the crap that really doesn't matter for anything :p:

Define intelligence.
I've always thought of intelligence as a harmony and balance between knowledge and understanding.

You?

Look Einstein and Newton were physicists (altho the latter is not so clear-cut). Maths goes into a needless amount of depth, pure maths at that level is pretty useless. Maths is just over-rated in my opinion, don't get me wrong I like it alot but I only see it as a tool for physicists.

If so much of the stuff mathematicians do is useless, how is it a tool for physicists?

Contradiction:eek:

I daresay that a big part of "intelligence" is knowing when to quit.

Maths is to physics, as Philosophy is to everything.

It provides a fundamental underpinning of first-concepts, and it deals with all the tricky **** that no one else wants to deal with

So we're basically making a value judgement about which strand of knowledge and understanding we rate more highly than the others?

I'm sorry you see it that way. I'll put it in clearer terms: like someone else said, physicists take the most useful parts of maths and throw the rest away (for all you mathmos to waste time over).

Biologist, because they are only one in the list who understands how the brain works. :p:
Do they? :P

It's quite clearly mathmos; but only because they're all autistic, socially-reclusive, genius savants.

Ah, I see. Then you're suffering from the same disorder as Tom So much of maths, the study of prime numbers being an excellent example, was purely for the enjoyment of mathematicians, of 'no use' to anyone. Then we needed to encrypt messages during information transfer, so physicists/cryptographers/computer-people came and raped the previously 'useless' maths.
