The Newtons and friends were taking tea
Beneath the boughs of an apple tree,
When a falling fruit landed on the
Head of the head of the family.
Mrs. Newton cried, 'Well deary me!
That could've caused an injury'.
But clever Isaac alone could see,
The situation's true gravity.

The right answer is William Whewell. Mad Scienctist was the first one to get it right. Way to go...

William Whewel (1794-1866) is widely known as the father of philosophy of science. He studied at Cambridge University as a mineralogist, moral philosopher, mystic, and polymath, not to metion educator. He wrote essays, that are now known as "natural theology" His argument was that the knowledge of the world is acquired because of uniform and fudemental laws of science that we can discover. He is also know for his theory of induction.
