A biography of one of the more significant scientists and mathematicians in human history. Newton invented Calculus, discovered the principles of gravity and motion, and made great strides in the study of light and the use of the experimental method.
Sir Isaac Newton used his great works, Mathematical Principle of Natural Philosophy and Opticks, to testify to God. He wrote: "The Supreme God is a Being eternal, infinite, absolutely perfect." As he studies the Bible, he wrote thousands of pages of notes, which have never been published. Few people know that the man who discovered the "Laws of Motion" and Calculus also wrote about God. Newton anticipated issues that are still the subject of lively debate today, as when he wrote: "This most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being."
