It is putting a very high value on one's conjectures, to have a man roasted alive because of them Montaigne, Essais From the earliest days philosophers were critical of Christianity. They found no substantial arguments, and pointed out a number of weaknesses in Christian reasoning. Christians for their part were suspicious of philosophy which they regarded as at best unnecessary and at worst the work of Satan. As one authority writes of Tertullian's Accusations of the Gentiles He declares that the Holy Scriptures are a treasure from which all the true wisdom in the world has been drawn; that every philosopher and every poet is indebted to them.
Returning to school inhe obtained his diploma by and entered Basel University in the same year. At Basel University he studied chemistry with a minor in botany and physics  and started to study inorganic chemistry under professor Friedrich Fichter.
In he continued his studies in the organic chemistry lab of Hans Rupe. Geigy AG in Basel.
His first research topics at Geigy concerned synthetic and plant-derived dyes and natural tanning agents. He said that his love for plants and nature in general, which led him to choose botany as a minor subject at university, brought him to think about plant protection.
Specifically, he wanted to start synthesizing chemical plant protection agents himself. This led him to believe it likely that there are chemicals toxic exclusively to insects. He sought to "synthesize the ideal contact insecticide—one which would have a quick and powerful toxic effect upon the largest possible number of insect species while causing little or no harm to plants and warm-blooded animals.
The first of these was a major food shortage in Switzerland, which underscored the need for a better way to control the infestation of crops by insects.
The second was the typhus epidemic in Russia, which was the most extensive and lethal such epidemic in history. He studied all the data he could find on the subject of insecticides, decided which chemical properties the kind of insecticide he was in search of would exhibit, and set out to find a compound that would suit his purposes.
He placed a fly in a cage laced with one particular compound, and short while later, the fly died. Zeidler, while publishing a paper about his synthesis, had not investigated the properties of the new compound, and had thus failed to recognize its extraordinary value as an insecticide.
Department of Agriculture confirmed its effectiveness against the Colorado potato beetle.
Further tests demonstrated its astonishing effectiveness against a wide range of pests, including the mosquito, louse, flea, and sandfly, which, respectively, spread malaria, typhus, the plague, and various tropical diseases. Army supply lists in May of the same year. It was also in that the first practical tests of DDT as a residual insecticide against adult vector mosquitoes were carried out.

Jul 04, · Hermann Karl Bruno von François (January 31, – May 15, ) was a German General der Infanterie during World War I, and is best known for his key role in several German victories on the Eastern Front in Early life and military career Born in Luxembourg to a noble family of Huguenot extraction, François was exposed to a military life from an early age.
The next year, in Italy, tests were performed in which residual DDT was applied to the interior surfaces of all habitations and outbuildings of a community to test its effect on Anopheles vectors and malaria incidence. In he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine, "for his discovery of the high efficiency of DDT as a contact poison against several arthropods.
The Nobel Committee said: Without any doubt, the material has already preserved the life and health of hundreds of thousands. He retired from Geigy incontinuing his research in a home laboratory.
His grades suffered because he spent all his free time in his little home laboratory performing elementary experiments. In high school and college, Paul was often mocked by his peers being called, "The Ghost," due to his thin and pale appearance.
Furthermore, he owned a small fruit farm that he regularly tended to. This fascination resulted in his research on pesticides at Geigy, and sequentially the discovery of DDT's pesticidal properties. Specifically Greece honored him for the near elimination of malaria in the country as a result of his discovery.
Inhe was invited to Greece and received with great sympathy and celebrated as national hero.
