    With Dr. Neil Degrasse Tyson talking about "naming rights", namely how a culture gets naming rights because they're either the very first to study something or they did it better than anyone else, like the greeks with the stars or the Islamic world with mathematics.

    Well he went into how the Islamic world went from THE intellectual and scientific superpower of it's age to it's current dismal state and how a people can lose it's intellectual base and basically showed examples from our own culture and how we should be worried and should push for greater funding for education as well as reform because we risk losing our position.

    I feel he's right, but also wrong.

    Right about everything, but wrong that we can do anything about it anymore.
