Feb 23 – Sir Isaac Newton

Sir Isaac Newton was a brilliant English Physicist and Mathematician, widely recognized as one of the most influential scientists of all time. His work, Principia formulated the laws of motion and universal gravitation, which dominated scientists’ view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. On one occasion Newton, made a working model of our Solar system. At its center was a large golden ball representing the sun and revolving around it were the planets- smaller spheres attached at the end of rods of varying lengths. A friend of Newton’s, who did not believe in the Biblical account of creation watched as Newton made the tiny planets move in their orbits. ”The friend exclaimed, “My what an exquisite thing! Who made it? Newton, a devout Christian, replied “No one” “these belts, cogs and gears just came together and by chance they revolve in their set orbits with perfect timing.” Newton may have been thinking of the Bible verse that says, “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God.”
