Each of us has annoyed someone. Each has misunderstood. Each has been a misfit.

Isaac Newton: did not believe in the Holy Trinity although it was a requirement at his
place of lifetime employment. Was considered
very stern, aloof and sometimes overzealous
in personal matters.

Charles Darwin: did not predict the error which
comes from applying Natural Selection to modern
society -- which is actually proceeding with artificial selection based largely on misinformation, disinformation, lies, miscomprehension and self-seeking herd mentalities/ mob rule/ religious and anti-religious incoherency.

Ralph Waldo Emerson: his 'self-reliance' needed to be more fully elaborated IRT living in a corrupt system you didn't create and which attacks one's mind with distractions and interruptions of intensities never foreseen in his times.

Many have been great among mankind and possibly acceptable to God who have, to be forgiven later, uttered unfair racist comments, committed adultery, inadvertently borne false witness or violated in other ways. If their rough ages were not forgiven, only graduates of expensive finishing schools would be credited duly.
