Newton's Life

He proved his theory by building onto the lens of a telescope known as the Newtonian telescope. In 1672 he published about this discovery titled 'Opticks: A Treatise of the Reflections, Refractions, Inflextions and Colours of Light.' After this book received much criticism, Newton had a nervous breakdown which led to years without intellectual correspondence. During this time he continued his studies on his theory of gravitation and it's effects. Isaac Newton, the most influential and greatist scientist who ever lived, passed away on March 20, 1727 and was buried at Westminister Abbey.

- Binomial Theorem- Infinitesimal Calculus- Newton's Identies- Newton's Method- Discovered classified cubic plane curves.- Theory of Color and to prove this theory he built onto the telescope which became known as the Newtonian Telescope.- He discovered there was a single force that determined the motion of the moon, the relationship of the pendulum and it's swing and the failling of apples from a tree.- And lastly but certainly not least, the 3 Laws of Motion.

Newton was born on Christmas day to Hannah Newton. His father, Isaac, Had died three months before his birth. His mother shortly remarried and Newton was sent to live with his grandmother. He attended The King's School where he achieved top rank. He then moved on to enrolling in Trinity Colleg, Cambridge in 1661. At Cambridge, Newton developed intrest in Physics, astronomy, optics and mathematics. A plague later shut the college down for two years. It was during those two years that Newton advanced his theories on calculus, optics and law of gravitation. Newton worked on the study of optics for many years about the refraction of light made up by glass prisms. Through his experiments he discovered the Theory of Color.

- Newton made contribution to the Theory of Finite Differences and became the 1st to employ fractional indices and coordinate geometry to derive solutions to Diophantine equations.- He was elected to represent Cambridge at Parliament.- He became Warden of the Mint but later was promoted to Master of the Mint.- He was elected as president of the Royal Society.- He was knighted by Queen Anne.

Newton read the Bible daily and wrote over a million words of notes studying it. He belivieved the Bible to be completely and literally true in every aspect. He even tested the Biblical truth against physical truth and never observed a contradiction. He viewed his testing the Bible as a way of reinforcing the Biblical truth. He also believed that every person should read the Bible because it established for himself an understanding of the universal truth it contains. His book titled 'Observations Upon the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John was finally published by J. Darby and T. Browne six years after he passed away. If Isaac Newton, who was and still is one of the greatest minds this world has ever seen, believed every page of the Bible for what It said then what is stopping scientists today?
