Could you elaborate on Newton? From what I know, beside being genius, he was pretty harmless...

Newton was famously something of a jerk. He could be very suspicious, jealous, and vindictive, especially of other scientists. Of course he wasn't alone in this among the members of the Royal Society.

I will accept genius being a jerk any time. Being jerk is not evil. I postulate to take Isaac Newton out of this thread. We all want to profit from his work without bad consciousness.
Michael Jackson I can live without.
