I am not predisposed to dispute with you.
In fact, I am quite busy and must take more time away from this forum.
Prayer of doubt on this one.
I am not disputing a great Jewish contribution to the development of science.
However, I see many apparent "data exceptions" to what you say.
Please tell me which of these you feel were
actually Jews, not Christians
or offer explanation:
Galileo, Bruno, Newton, Mendel,
Kepler, Brahe, Darwin (to begin)
Christian history is much like history of all parts of the world. Lots of Language Removed in it.
