  1. And he was an alchemist an astrologer, and mathematician and scientist and theologian. Because back then, there was no divide between science and religion.
    Newton believed that God had created the world, and the study of the world was the study of God.

  2. In regards to his discovery of gravity: “So then gravity may put the planets into motion, but without the Divine Power it could never put them into such a circulating motion, as they have about the sun”.

  3. I also think worshipping Jesus is rediculous and these days a sign of cult like brain washing. I believe in God, pay, meditate, the whole thing, but I think the Jesus focus is misguided. It removes you from your own relationship with God. I didn’t know there was a name for this, anti trinitarian. Very cool.
