Hypatia In existographies, Hypatia (350-415) (IQ:190|#38) [RGM:123|1,500+] (GFG:1) (CR:38) was a Greco-Roman Alexandrian philosopher, mathematician, physicist, and astronomer, the only known female universal genius, daughter of mathematical astronomer Theon, the last head of the Library of Alexander, noted for being one of the last apex intellects before humanity went into the dark ages.

Science vs religion
Hypatia was one of the first to take a stand against religion and to side with science. She made public statements against organized religion, such as: [1]

“All formal religions are delusive and must never be accepted by self-respecting persons as final.”

Other noted anti-religion quotes:

“Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fancies. To teach superstitions as truth is a most terrible thing. The child mind accepts and believes them, and only through great pain and perhaps tragedy can he or she be in after years relieved of them. The reason for this is that a superstition is so intangible a thing that you cannot get at it to refute it.”
— Hypatia (c.400)

Hypatia, owing to her controversial anti-Christian views, was infamously stripped naked, beating with clam shells, stoned, dismembered, and burned alive (existive) by a mob, led by Peter the Lector, as depicted below: (Ѻ)
