I went with "The magic men" I'm a sucker for the "in your face" approach.


Oh.....and no Richard Dawkins in two polls?

I would rather face a cold reality than delude myself with comforting fantasies.

OF COURSE Lenski would kick butt. He has all those bacteria on his tag team.

T!!!! How great to see you around these parts!

I hope you're not just passing through...

Hawking tied with the Mybusters!? Penn and Teller - so blinded by their own political ideology - 4% higher than Hawking?

I am disgusted with these results.

Depends on how you interpret "who would win in a free-for-all, anything-goes cage match?"

Hawking is certainly smarter than Penn, but I bet Penn could kick his ass.

Marf, It's up to you how you interpret the question.

You see...that's why I voted for Penn & Teller....Penn will kick your ass verbally and, looking at most of the people on the list... physically as well. Even if Hawking is smarter he'll never get a word in edgewise with Penn. Also I feel Hawking's brilliance is more narrowly focused....Penn can attack a much broader range of topics...IMHO.

I have to go with the Mythbusters, after all Jamie Hyneman was raised right here in my home town.
