If science disproves God, why do some of the greatest names in science maintain their faith? One of the greatest scientific names, Sir Isaac Newton, was a strong believer in God and wrote over 1.3 million words on biblical subjects.
Newton was famous for the laws of motion, universal gravitation, the inverse-distance-squared law, light and optics and inventing calculus and always maintained his faith.
Stephen E. Jones summarizes:
Isaac Newton was one of the world’s greatest scientists. He utilized his great genius and powers of reasoning to produce his famous scientific discoveries including his laws of motion, the law of universal gravitation, studies in optics, and the invention of calculus. But he was also a devout Christian, and he brought this same intellectual genius to bear in his analysis of Christianity, and he based his beliefs on his own studies of the Bible along with the earliest Christian writers. Based on his studies he rejected the doctrine of the Trinity and proved that it was unbiblical. He also concluded from that there had been an apostasy from the true Church of Christ, and that at some future time there would be a restoration.– Steven E.

Why do many scientists develop or maintain great faith like this?
