Charles Witt’s column last Tuesday calls for response from a scientist
Don’t you find it strange that the marvelous scientific discoveries made by Isaac Newton (the relation between Force, Mass and Acceleration, the Law of Gravity, his analysis of the nature of light) are part of the foundation of modern physics and yet he did not believe in evolution, but in a Creator who arranged these things in an established order, waiting for a scientist to discover them? If he were to express his faith here today, the evolutionists would declare him to be un-scientific.
One of the greatest theoretical physicists of the 19th century, James Clerk Maxwell, is well known for his studies of the electromagnetic field. His contribution to mathematics and the understanding of electromagnetism were in no way demeaned by his unswerving faith in God, the Creator of light and author of the Bible.
Beginning in 1827, Faraday was professor of chemistry at the Royal Institution. Besides his research in chemistry, his greatest contribution to science was in the field of electricity. He soon was able to design and build an electric motor. In 1821 he began experimenting with electromagnetism and by demonstrating the conversion of electrical energy into motive force, invented the electric motor. And all this without being educated in the theory of evolution. He was a Bible believing Christian.
