Thales of Miletus
We celebrate Fathers Day in June. We do not know the exact date of Thales' birth, but we are certain that historians name him as the Father of Geometry, Father of Deductive Geometry, Father of Greek Mathematics or even Father of Mathematics. Thus, we honor Thales in June.
Born: ca. 624 BC in Asia Minor (now Turkey)
Died: ca. 547 BC in Asia Minor (now Turkey)
