Jewish Nobel Laureates: 11590% More Than Population Statistics Might Expect

Since its inception in 1895 till the last presentations in 2007, there have been 155 Nobel Prize laureates who are of Jewish lineage.

Out of the total 684 Nobel laureates for the above categories, a full 22.66% of them have been of Jewish lineage.

An amazing list of achievements for a people who comprise just 0.1955% of the world population!

That, as the title of my post states, is a statistical over-representation of Jewish people among Nobel Prize laureates to the value of 11590.793% (i.e there are 115.9 times as many Jewish Nobel laureates as there would be if every race had equal representation among the Nobel Prize winners).

And many of their contributions to science and society are practical and beneficial to our everyday lives (e.g. anesthesia, penicillin, blood groups, relativity which enables GPS).

And they’re making new breakthroughs all the time, not just once-upon-a-time during some wistfully recalled Golden Age in the long gone past.

This in spite of thousands of years of persecution, climaxing at in the Holocaust murder of 6 million, and institutionalized throughout the world  even today.

Therefore even I, of the great Chinese race that is more than a billion strong, must admit the superiority of God’s chosen people. (Yes Dr. M, they do rule at least the intellectual world.)

Something the Death-to-Jews/Israel/Zionists crowd should think about before their next loud protest against the insinuated ‘global parasites’. And just who is busy shouting slogans, rioting and burning cars instead of working hard to better mankind?

Indeed YHWH’s unbreakable promise to Abraham (patriarch of the Jewish people through Isaac through Jacob aka Israel) has been fulfilled, and will continue to be fulfilled:

  • “I will make you into a great nation
           and I will bless you;
           I will make your name great,
           and you will be a blessing.
  •  I will bless those who bless you,
           and whoever curses you I will curse;
           and all peoples on earth
           will be blessed through you
    .” – Genesis 12:2-3

All the peoples on earth (no matter how ungrateful) have been blessed through Abraham’s descendants, the Jewish race…

Through the contributions to human civilization by individuals, and ultimately through the salvation and redemption that is offered to us through the greatest Jewish-born person of all history – Jesus the Messiah.

PS. The Nobel Peace Prize is not included even though Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Rabin won it, because frankly, it is determined by just five people based on their political bias (not scientific review nor neutral objectivity).

Which is why such obvious embarassments and failures as Jimmy Carter, Yasser Arafat and Al ‘Haven’t Achieved Anything Yet’ Gore could win it.

PPS. Meanwhile, the rest of the Middle East populace is 2350% over-represented in terrorist incidents. Go figure.

END CREDITS: Meryl Yourish where I found the link to how many Jewish Nobel laureates there have been.

PPPS. The Jawa Report does a similar type of calculation, only regarding terrorists incidents on US soil by a certain segment of the population… 45 out of 125 is 36%, but the segment is 0.08% of the total population, so they are over-represented by 45,000% (i.e. 450 times as many terrorists from this segment as there ought to be if everything else were equal).

Gateway Pundit also has a similar conclusion… For international terrorist incidents resulting in trials in America, 186 of 226 is 81.58%. Out of a 1% of the American population, this is an over-representation of 815,789% (8,158 times as many as the average)!


Tipped by hutchrun, on Israel’s 63rd anniversary:

Israel has the highest average living standards in the Middle East. The per capita income in 2000 was over $17,500, exceeding that of the UK.
Israel’s $100 billion economy is larger than all of its immediate neighbors combined.
Israel has the third highest rate of entrepreneurship – and the highest rate among women and among people over 55 – in the world.

Israel accomplishments under 63 years of attack and duress.

Israel inventions under 63 years of attack and duress.

Contrast with Anti-Jewish nations:

As I’ve observed before in this space, countries where vicious anti-Semitism is rife are almost always backward and poor. This isn’t, as anti-Semites believe, because the Elders of Zion are plotting to keep Uz-beki-beki-beki-stan poor. It is because the inability to see the world clearly and discern cause and effect relations in complex social settings is linked to many other failures in economic and political life. Anti-Semitism isn’t just the socialism of fools; it is the sociology of the befuddled. The anti-Semite fails to grasp how the world works, and that failure condemns him to endless frustration. Naturally, this is the fault of the Jews.

And noted atheist Richard Dawkins also pointed out this huge statistical skew:

I thought about comparing the numbers of Nobel Prizes won by Jews (more than 120) and Muslims (ten if you count Peace Prizes, half that if you don’t). This astonishing discrepancy is rendered the more dramatic when you consider the small size of the world’s Jewish population.

But if you want to bring up the Jews, I’m happy to drop Trinity, Cambridge and give you the truly astonishing Nobel Prize figures for Jews. You’ll find it won’t bolster your apologetics.

  1. Samuel Skinner Says:

    And white people have made more nobel laureates than any other group- but what, its because they have all the money and education. Most so for Jews on education- the Christains banned them from land ownership so they had to go into the service sector.

    Aside from Jews, white people, men, Europeans, nerds, the nonpoor and smart people (well… this on is fair)are drastically over represented.

  2. SIBY MATHEW Says:

    Yes, Jews are the God chosen people. ut now they are away from god.

  3. Iser Blumenthal Says:

    Chinese is a race? LOL. Yes, Jews = chosen people. Chinese should bow to us (Adcoms) for admitting them to all the top colleges. Shalom.

    my dear zionist

    do youwant me to believe that a allucinated beduin called abraham 3000 years saw god and told him that jews were going to be a better people than the other.
    I don`t care if you are jew or muslim or christian,german, the same time a jews won the nobels don`t forget they were mix with other human races or religion.but don`t forget also that someor half of them were political choice to support israel position,the demonstration is,like you`ve said about Al Gore, that they were better choice the time this people won the nobel.Im a scientist and my wife is jew and both we know this stop with the propaganda.
    The most valid nobel prize ytzak rabbin was killed by your people because he was talking of peace.
    And maybe you didn`t get jesus christ message.
    anyway if you are a civil person you will publish my comment

  6. Scott Thong Says:

    Hallucitory or not, you can’t argue with the statistical fact that Jews are still one of the most prominent in winning Nobel Prizes in the sciences.

    Recall that I think the Nobel Peace Prize is a large pile of steaming political doo-doo. Being that it is influenced by politics rather than hard science. Which is why Al Gore won one of those doo-doo piles instead of a prize in Physics.

  7. Jesus Was Palestinian (and other lies) – Counting Cats in Zanzibar Says:

    […] if early Jews didn’t do much more than scratch their asses they have certainly been playing catch-up rather well recently. Much more so than those brilliant Muslims (who UK math teachers are now […]

    Jerusalem, oh jerusalem
    greatest among the city,
    how you became like this,

  12. Brian Stokes Jr. Says:

    Abraham was a real person in history as sure as George Washington was. Did he see a God? Who knows who has seen God?

  13. Jonathan Addi Says:

    Anti-Semites are a group of people which are jealous of the jews. Hitler and the Nazi’s tried to destroy the jewish nation bec. they realized how great they were. They knew if they can destroy the jewish nation there would be no such thing as guilt. Hitler clearly stated himself that ”by destroying the jews he would destroy the conscious of the world. If you take a quick look at all the nations which tried to destroying the jews, the romans,persians, egyptians etc. all are fallen nations. The economies of all these nations are as bad as it can possibly get. So after all the Jews have been through, surviving massacres and trying to be stripped of their religious views. They are still more succesful then any other nation and still more prominent then any nation will ever be. So even considering denying that the Jews are the chosen nation is clearly plain stupidity and a sense of a denial.

  14. Scott Thong Says:

    You can add that every nation that betrayed them suffered for it – the Brits who promised a homeland in WWI for the invention of smokeless gunpowder reneged on their deal, and soon lost their empire.
