455. Ben Franklin Is Still Unknon By Too Many Americans
Ben became a dominant scientist because his scientific work was widely accepted by people in England, Germany, and France. In 1756, Ben became a Fellow of the Royal Society in England. Ten yeas later, in 1766), he became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Science in Germany. And in 1772 Ben became a Fellow of the French Academy of Sciences in France.
On Mother's Day (May 11, 2014), the 'Cosmos, a Spacetime Odyssey' by Fox TV, did not give any credit to Ben Franklin for his work on electricity in the 18th century. If Fox TV would have examined Ben's work on electricity, this Fox TV program might have learned that electricity is both positive and negative and works together and are not related logically. Since electricity is both positive and negative, it can form things such as a car battery.
If Fox TV studied Ben Franklin, it would have learned that Ben's electricity might be related (1) to Ben's statements on the immortality of humans and (2) to Ben's doubts about the divinity of Jesus. Ben's statement and doubt are seen on page 322 of Ben's Autobiography.
Instead, Fox TV seems to be teaching England's science. For example, Fox TV discussed the electrical work of Michael Faraday (1791-1867) in the 19th century. Ben's work on electricity was not discussed. In other programs, Fox TV seems to be teachings only England's science and England's evolutionary theory to the American audience. Thus, Fox TV continues to say that humans are made from apes. This is not widely accepted in America.
