Quotes from Sir Isaac Newton

Sir Isaac Newton [1642-1727]Mathematician, Physicist, Inventor of calculus, Law of universal gravitationNewton’s three laws of motion:
1) Law of inertia
2) Force=mass*acceleration
3) Principle of action and reactionPublished “Newton’s Prophecies of Daniel” after his study and translation of the Book of Daniel [in the Bible]
“About the time of the end, a body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the Prophecies, and insist upon their literal interpretation, in the midst of much clamor and opposition.”
“There are more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history.”
” This thing [a scale model of our solar system] is but a puny imitation of a much grander system whose laws you know, and I am not able to convince you that this mere toy is without a designer and maker; yet you, as an atheist, profess to believe that the great original from which the design is taken has come into being without either designer or maker! Now tell me by what sort of reasoning do you reach such an incongruous conclusion?”
