Fact: The Universal Man : Da Vinci

Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) born in Italy was known as the universal man because of his many and varied talents. Many seem to remember him more for his paintings such as the Mona Lisa and the portrait of the last supper which was the focus of the the recent hit book and movie the Da Vinci Code, but he was more than that.

Leonardo was a paintor, sculptor, architect, engineer, inventor, scientist, scholar, anatomist, botanist and zoologist, all combined into a single personality. No wonder he was called ten men in one, try finding people like that today.

    Anudeep, Stop preaching, fair enough to your opinion but mine is that the bible is just brainwashing tool, just as rap music is today. Less people believe in god these days and more believe in acting in an evil way, Why? well i think its because of tv the world has changed. People dont think for themselves because they cant.

    Anudeep, I believe in God too! We all should! “James” DaVincii is interesting as an artist. James, if you want to criticize me and Anudeep go ahead, but we will still believe! Charlotte, keep up your attitude. You go girl! Gabriel, I appreciate your opinion, bu twe should never judge! Thomas, who do you think you are calling Anudeep bad names. Keep your comments to yourself. GO DENNA! NICELY SAID! I DON’T THINK THEY SHOULD HAVE THESE STUPID COMMENT THINGS! Lee don’t you judge too!

    The christian god condemns his own creations to eternal hell. Does not sound like a kind, loving god does he? No wonder wherever his religion spread, death and destruction was not far behind .. just ask the native Indians, Africans, Aborigines of Australia!

    So basically, for some of you all(who appear to not believe in anything, which I presume) your saying that, now since nearly no one believes in a god, things have gotten better, haven’t they? Let me disagree with that mind set. Because when we had god, albeit wars and the like, at least people had some morales and wouldn’t do this or that(yeah I know there were still double standards). Maybe people were even nicer too, then they are today. Maybe they were just a tad less selfish then people today. Let me give you an example of a selfish ungrateful person today: people who say “As long as that person _insert does something odd like having love dolls ect._ he/she doesn’t effect me, so I don’t need to worry!”
    Pathetic.

    You just got to love how fickle people are. 500 years ago they were so into in believing god and all that other stuff, and now, the majority don’t. I love it! I love general humans, who can’t think for themselves. Oh well, it all goes in a circle. The religious people are now the ones being persecuted for their beliefs, while the scientists and that sha bang are the right ones. Who’s right? Should be a balance between the two, instead of one dominating the other. by the way, I believe in god or a god, and jesus.

    jesus could have been married leonardo was a great mind and most of the bibles teachings have been disproved (sun going around the earth) and the bible was writen by humans and anything done my humans is unreliable so dont believe everything you read Jesus could have been married but most likely not but there is a possibility

    Artists, especially visual, can be more trusted on the products of their hands, and even their feet, but not more on the products of their mouth. So, I think and I believe that it is just proper to trust da Vinci by what his hands had drawn or sketched, than to trust his words. Let’s be more objective.

    In fact, what we all know by now about da Vinci is based on the author’s point of view when he/she wrote something about da vinci…Nobody can prove his lunacy but of course, there is no such thing that can dispute his genius, “if”, he really does EXIST!!!…Remember the issues about the actual EXISTENCE of Shakespeare guys???…Let’s just enjoy this site for what it presents, for the author of this site is also entitled to his/her own intellectual rights, and so are we…And one thing more, Jesus and da Vinci are two totally different subjects…I can see no reason for having an argument here…Btw jz a little bit of a trivia, da Vinci can write with his left and right hand at the same time, in German and Italian consequently…

    Venka, I think you should have more in-depth study of your HISTORY before commenting something like that…Whatever your religion was (that is if you have any) better keep your opinion to your self, in fact your comment regarding the Christian God is a thing very far from the topic being discussed here!…Stop being a self-righteous handicap!…

    i think that Leonardo DaVinci was and still is the greatest mind to have ever lived!!!! I have studied him and his times and he was also a loving and caring human being who helped many people even if they were poor , so if you are ignorant and stupid please keep your dumb comments out of this site!!! thanks

    Da Vinci was a genius in many different traits and aspects. if you are a firm beleiver in God. Please read the First Testament before you start referring to your “Bible”. The Bible was not given to us by God, but written by man. it is purely a guide line to live a happy and fulfilling life without destroying the hope of others. And im sorry to say Anudeep but if you are a firm beleiving sheep, godz is spelt God’s. That is his name and you should always capitalize. Da Vinci was a man that broke through Biblical and Modern art (for his time), invented many useful tools that are still the basis for many trade tools to this day. His theories on man and the Earth and still widely renowned and respected. We should be greatful that a man such Da Vinci had beathed the same air we do. Peace..

    God sure does have a nice printing style if he actually wrote the book, The Bible. I guess He has His own publishing house as well . . . Heaven and Angels Publishing, Inc. Here I thought the Bible was tanslated into Greek for preserving and then into the various languages of the continent as the Reformation neared and spread. What about the various editions and versions, King James, for example?

    Just remember that more people have been killed in the name of religion than any other reason. The United States is not a theocracy . . . yet. Iran is a theocracy. Where would you rather live?
