If Newton had lived in the tropics
At least he would’ve still discovered gravity. BTW, did anybody hear that coconut hit him?
He is sunbathing on the beach instead of sitting in the shade of an apple tree.
What did we use before Newton discovered gravity?
He’d have become Famous for his Coconut Pies..
PICTORightful place. All things seek their rightful place, even when restrained. The apple falls because its rightful place is on the ground where it can make more apple trees. Smoke’s rightful place is in the sky where it can notify people of a fire.
Obviously, Newton did not discover gravity, it was around all along. What he did discover and express mathematically, is the part mass plays on how it acts. He considered his greatest discovery to be on the nature of white light (ROY G BIV and all that) rather than gravity and the laws of motion. Similarly, Darwin considered his greatest to be the agency of earthworms in the making of topsoil, rather than evolution by natural selection.
