Isaac attacked Bill on; Education, Science, and TV Show
Bill & Neill attacked Isaac on; Personal life
Verse 1: Isaac -
"Of all the scientific minds in history they put Beaker and a Bowtie up against me?"
neutral points - Isaac Newton makes a good start, suggesting there are plenty better scientists who could have matched him - he also makes a passing comment on his appearance, but nothing substantial.
"I'm a master. I discovered gravity. I drop rhymes like they're falling from an apple tree"
neutral points - Isaac Newton is playing on words to describe himself and the works he has accomplished throughout his life, plus with the very specific reason how he discovered gravity in the first place. More of a boastful line than hitting Bill.
"You're no match for me, you got a bach. degree. I got a unit of force named after me."
+1 - Newton makes his first hit against Bill - with his education. While attacking him he is still boosting his own achievements with the Newton unit.
"You wanna battle guy, that's a crazy notion. When I start flowing I stay in motion."
neutral points - Again Newton makes a very good 'attack' in his rap, but it's not so much directed at Bill. More-so it's bring out all of his achievements in just one verse.
"First Law. Did you catch that? Or did it go too fast to detect? Perhaps it would have been better if I added in a bleep or a bloop or another wacky sound effect."
neutral points - made reference to Bill's TV show, but didn't really attack it so much as to give a point towards it. However, Isaac's flow of rhyming is very good, and again just shows his discovery.
"I was born on Christmas, I'm God's gift. I unlocked the stars that you're dancing with."
1+ - Referencing that Isaac Newton was born on 25th December, and was a Christian - his seemingly subtle (to me) mention of unlocking the stars just shows how important his discoveries and methodologies were - including his work on orbitary planets, and that through 400+ he is still relevant today, the methods used, and still important - pitting that against what Bill has achieved is what Isaac was doing.
"You waste time debating Creationists while I create the science you explain to kids."
1+ - It's true, the genius is in the creation of the formulae/calculation/mathematics or discovery of something, and not the passing on to children and students from something that was also passed down onto you. Imagine that, without a calculator as well. Remarkable stuff how it was done. He just emphasizes that genius mark, the difference between Isaac Newton's and Bill Nye's contribution to science.
Verse 2: Bill -
"Yes it's true. What I used to do is teach kids science on my PBS show. Now I do what I got to do to make sure scientific thought can grow."
"And I'm still in my prime, hitting my stride. What did you do with the back half of your life? you freaked out started counting coins for the bank and you sure didn't have no wife"
+0.5 - having no wife doesn't mean he wasn't successful - it's usually associated with incomparably high intelligence that they are not so much interested in having a family or sexual relationships - Isaac Newton seemingly did have an intense relationship with someone, but it never went further - as he went on to study and have breakthroughs in science.
"You wrote the book on gravity, but you couldn't attract nobody. Your work on orbits was exemplary but your circle of friends was shoddy."
Neutral points - pretty much a reiteration of the last point - reasons for lack of such may be because he was too busy making many breakthroughs in science in which Bill Nye now uses - so the insult doesn't really play, it was by choice for Isaac. However, good play on words with gravity and attract.
"You don't wanna mess with the guy Bill Nye (why?), I rap sharp like a needle in your eye (oh)."
Neutral points - no substance in that line, just a boasting of his own skill in rap battles which doesn't really play. (unless there is actually a reference in Isaac and needles - don't think so)
"stick to drinking that mercury 'cause I hypothesize you're about to get beat"
Neutral points - Hypothesize doesn't fit in against Isaac, when Isaac's next verse is going to be "I conclude..." 'Hypothesize' is a proposition when 'conclude' is a statement. His reference to Newton's alchemy studies is noted, however, it was through his alchemy studies that had led to some of his discoveries in the first place.
Verse 3: Isaac
"Well I conclude that your methods are the wackest. You wouldn't even pass in one of my classes."
+0.5 Not only is that a good insult against Bill on the difference in minds on science, it's possibly true in perspective of having teaching Bill Nye.
"Every action has an equal and opposite reaction, except for when we both start rapping."
Neutral points - a good play on rhyming, but no insult or point proven directed towards Bill.
"I accelerated the mind of mankind to a higher plane of understanding and I can calculate the weight and size and the shape of the mind that you're standing in."
+2 - A great statement of where Isaac Newton stands among scientific minds. Not only did he insult Bill, but he did it with saying his mind is tiny in comparison to Isaac's, in that his achievements will never amount to anything worthy and that he will always be in the shadows of his peers. Isaac did this, whilst also giving himself credit to the science we have now thanks to him.
"And I will leave you with a page from a book I wrote at half your age to rebut: the integral sec y dy from zero to one-sixth of pi is log to base e of the square root of 3 times the sixty-fourth power of what?"
Neutral points - wondered whether one point should be given, but Isaac is just demonstrating an example of what he said in his previous line - however, he does direct the line against Bill - being half the age of Bill he wrote the book and made calculations and answers - without the use of a calculator, this would have been done all in the head, and scrutinized by future scientists today and back then to see if it is right or wrong - must have been correct, though.
Verse 4: Neill DeGrasse -
"Why don't you pick on a brain your own size. We got a badass over here, plus I got your back Nye. Astrophysics black guy. Hayden Planetary fly."
Neutral points - no substance in the introduction by Neill DeGrasse. He has a good beat and rhythm, but none of the lines actually stick or insult. He does make reference to his own work-place, and his job.
"By the way the answer to your little calculation is "i". As in I put the swag back in science, while Isaac Newton was lying and sticking daggers in Leibniz."
Neutral points - Wrong! There was little controversy on the discoverer of calculus, but the fiction is portrayed in this line 'sticking daggers in Leibniz' when the fact is they both independently worked a form of calculus - Newton is thought to have first worked on calculus, but on a different form from Leibniz's. Leibniz worked on another form almost ten years later (which was sometimes assumed was influenced by Newton's) and published his work whereas Newton hadn't, and that is where the controversy starts. They both discovered a form for calculus, Newton didn't steal it from Leibniz, and neither did Leibniz steal it from Newton.
"and hiding up inside his attic on some Harry Potter business. The universe is infinite but this battle is finished."
Neutral points - pretty much just to end the battle. I'm afraid I don't know the reference with attic and Harry Potter directed at Isaac. But other than the Leibniz, which is wrong to say he stabbed in the back, there was nothing added to the battle.
Sir Isaac Newton clearly won when you add it all up, and know his history compared to them. And in points gathered from insults, comebacks, boasts etc.:
Sir Isaac Newton: 5.5
Bill Nye & Neill DeGrasse: 0.5
like if you thing we should use this idea
or did i get it wrong?
