Studying for days and weeks at a time
Sir Isaac Newton was influenced by the Bible
Birthing calculus, he had quite a mind
Sticking to universal laws all of the while

Said of Newton, knighted for his work in physics, astronomy, and optics: ” he spent more time on theology than on science; indeed, he wrote about 1.3 million words on Biblical subjects…Newton’s understanding of God came primarily from the Bible, which he studied for days and weeks at a time….Newton’s theology profoundly influenced his scientific method… His God was not merely a philosopher’s impersonal First Cause; he was the God in the Bible who freely creates and rules the world, Who speaks and acts in  history.”
Said Jefferson, “Bacon, Newton and Locke…are my trinity of the three greatest men the world has ever produced.”

A vigorous pursuit of truth
Will lead one directly to God
To serve one’s country and church
Only content to give one’s all

Said Jefferson, “Bacon, Newton and Locke…are my trinity of the three greatest men the world has ever produced.”
Francis Bacon was known for developing the scientific method and is known as the “Father of Modern Science”.
He declared that his threefold goal was to discover truth, serve his country, and serve the church.  He asserted that vigorous pursuit of truth would always lead one directly to God.

The Declaration of Independence
Was an expression of the American mind
Of those schooled by the Scottish Common Sense
It is based on Christians writers of the time

Their principle tenets of persistence
Were straight forward- There is a God!
Who wrote upon each heart, a conscience
To base each choice, and create law

This being true, Thomas Jefferson knew
Reason and revelation do not conflict
Though one’s thoughts corrupt and judgments eschew
Laws of nature and inspiration do not contradict
