NEWTON’S CONCEPT OF THE UNIVERSAL GRAVITATION: THEOLOGY OR SCIENCE?


TRANSCRIPT FROM NEWTON’S STATEMENTS ABOUT HIS UNIVERSAL GRAVITATIONAL THEORY – MENTIONED IN “PRINCIPIA” AND IN OTHER LITERATURES.

1. “The concept of GRAVITY could only be fully understood by means of an appeal to THEOLOGICAL PRINCIPLES” Newton

2. “The concept of the Force of GRAVITY could only be explained ultimately as the manifestation of DIVINE AGENCY” Newton

3. “Without periodic DIVINE INTERVENTION, the Planetary System would become disordered. Nature would rundown and needed to be constantly replenished.” Newton

4. “As matter itself is entirely inert and devoid of all internal activity, the REACTIVATION of the natural world could only be provided by DIVINE AGENCY” Newton

5. “Gravitational Cosmology is fully compatible with BIBLE that is CHRISTIAN VIEW of the Universe” Newton

6. Ultimate purpose of the study of nature is to shed light on the problems of GOD’S RELATION to the nature, to understand the cosmos including GOD AS THE CREATOR AND SUSTAINER of Nature. Newton

7. “Concept of GRAVITATION is restatement of ideas known to PYTHAGORAS (570-500 BC) which had been hidden in enigmatic phraseology” Newton

8. “Rediscovery of the TRUE-SYSTEM of the world by restoration of ANCIENT WISDOM should be the task of student of natural world Newton

9. “THE GOD IS PRESENT IN THE INFINITE SPACE OF COSMOS and the Universe is the TEMPLE OF GOD. By means of force of GRAVITY, GOD SUSTAINED the operations of Nature. (This mean: GOD OPERATES AND CONTROLS THE UNIVERSAL MOTIONS BY FORCE OF GRAVITATION) Newton

10. “The Fundamental working of the Universe is the result of activating power of DIVINE AGENCY” Newton

Great Newton was constantly involving god with astrophysical phenomena and the force of GRAVITATION was considered as DIVINE POWER. Along with astronomy and mathematics, Newton also engaged in BIBLICAL Studies. Newton aimed to achieve the universal knowledge by combing the ANCIENT WISDOM – the revealed knowledge of PROPHETS.

According to Newton, the Mechanical Universe is like a clock that required rewinding and cleaning by DIVINE PROVIDENCE.
