A devout Christian and great mathematician, Newton is remembered as the discoverer of the law of gravity and the Laws of Motion.Isaac Newton wrote:On the sun and other heavenly bodies: "This most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intellectual Being."On the Lord of the heavens: "This being governs all things, not as the soul of the world, but as Lord of all . . ."On atheism: "Atheism is so senseless. When I look at the solar system, I see the earth at the right distance from the sun to receive the proper amounts of heat and light. This did not happen by chance."On the solar system: "The motions of the planets require a Divine Arm to impress them."On God, his Savior: "The true God is a living, intelligent and powerful being."On the trials of life: "Trials are medicines which our gracious and wise physician gives because we need them; and he proportions the frequency and weight of them to what the case requires. Let us trust His skill and thank Him for His prescription."On God's presence: "His (God's) duration reaches from eternity to eternity; His presence from infinity to infinity."
On the Bible: "I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by men who were inspired. I study the Bible daily."
