Talk:Isaac Newton

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Is this too short to be a stub? C???

Nah, it's fine. At least it's not written horribly. — Stooben Rooben 23:47, 28 October 2008 (EDT)

Shouldn't it be Sir Isaac Newton?[edit]

From Wikipedia:

"in April 1705, Queen Anne knighted Newton during a royal visit to Trinity College, Cambridge."

So should we move this article to Sir Isaac Newton? Or is it irrelevant to the Mario series? Krizzysig1.pngIt's A-Me, Krizzy!! Me, my chatroom, my contributions, etc .Krizzysig2.png

I think he called Isaac Newton in the game itself Raven Effect (talk)
Yeah, he's just called Isaac Newton in-game. Besides, I doubt not recognizing his knighthood is going to cause much of an issue. Mario4Ever


I know not many people have played these games, but perhaps someone knows the answer. Does the SNES or PC version actually show or say that the apple hit Newton on the head, as the article claims? The NES version doesn't, and this isn't actually what happened in history. Watching a falling apple did contribute to Newton's thoughts on gravity, but he merely observed it. The real Newton was no more hit by an apple than Washington's teeth were made of wood or Napoleon was extremely short; it's one of those historical facts everyone "knows", but isn't actually true.

Anyway, that's getting off the point a bit. What matters is what the game says, and that's what I'm asking. I find it difficult to believe an educational game would include an incorrect fact, but it's possible the people who made the game were mistaken, and from what I've heard, this and Mario is Missing! have other errors in them too. -- 1337star (Mailbox SP) Happy Holidays! 19:33, 15 December 2012 (EST)

Also, why do we talk about Isaac Newton's laws in the real life ? Should'nt we write only facts from the game ?

How come the background section is canon ? Is it told in the game ?
