I give the artists 10 minutes.
You've totally missed the point. Engineers bring technology: cars, buildings, energy, etc, etc, but it's artists, writers, painters, poets and philosophers that got us out of the dark age and into the Renaissance. You took my comment like it was a black and white world pitting artists against engineers - it's not. Nothing good would come out of a society only built by engineers, same goes for a society only built by artists. I'm starting to believe you're the one that can't have an actual discussion.
The greatest innovations come from people that are both great artists and great engineers. They're creative, they think outside the box and they have the mind to innovate. Leonardo DaVinci has always been regarded as the greatest artist and the greatest engineer of his time - that man was a genius, and it's people like him that made things move forward. People that can think with both sides of the brain.
