And yet YOU listen to a misogynistic charlatan who mumbled some moronic nonsense about maninfestations, for which there is zero evidence.

Pathetically amusing.

Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell (born 18 May 1872 – died 2 February 1970) was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, social critic, political activist and Nobel laureate. Russell was born in Monmouthshire into one of the most prominent aristocratic families in the United Kingdom.

He is considered one of the founders of analytic philosophy along with his predecessor Gottlob Frege, colleague G. E. Moore and protégé Ludwig Wittgenstein.

He is widely held to be one of the 20th century's premier logicians.

With A. N. Whitehead he wrote "Principia Mathematica", an attempt to create a logical basis for mathematics.

His philosophical essay "On Denoting" has been considered a "paradigm of philosophy".

His work has had a considerable influence on mathematics, logic, set theory, linguistics, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science (see type theory and type system) and philosophy, especially the philosophy of language, epistemology and metaphysics.

Russell was a prominent anti-war activist and he championed anti-imperialism.

He "welcomed with enthusiasm" world government.

He went to prison for his pacifism during World War I. Later, Russell concluded war against Adolf Hitler was a necessary "lesser of two evils" and criticized Stalinist totalitarianism, attacked the involvement of the United States in the Vietnam War and was an outspoken proponent of nuclear disarmament.

In 1950, Russell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his varied and significant writings in which he champions humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought".
