Serious inferiority syndrome going on here.
The classical trait of someone extremely unaccomplished, is to try to diminish the greatness of those that are great.
Either you are inferior, or you come from an inferior country. Possibly a country that really hates gays, such as Russia?
I've found Russians in general to be very unpleasant and arrogant, and not at all as smart as they think they are.
A Russian with money is even worse than an Arab.
If nothing else, Turing really brought to light what can be called a general computer. Sure, Charles Babbage was important, Sure, Ada was important, but he really got into the matter of what a computer's limitations are, and what it could possibly do. That elevates one from being just a mechanic to being a real thinker and philosopher. My cell phone , if it had been sent in time back to 1975, would have passed the Turing test with flying colors by a baffled audience. Today however, everybody knows something about search engines and voice recognition, and with the addition of some grammar and heuristics, so we would not so easily say the test has been passed. Today's Turing test would have to involve a human control group. The computer would have to be dumbed down, with a less perfect search engine, but with better heuristics for guessing, lying and bullshitting etc, and more refined voice engines.
