Who believed in God

The founding fathers of the various branches that make up science such as astronomy, Chemistry, Biology, Philosophy, Medicine, Botany and many others, were strong believers in God, they were creationist. These founding fathers wanted to understand God and His creation, great men such as:

Joseph Lister (Antiseptic Surgery)

Louis Pasteur (Bacteriology)

Sir Isaac Newton (Calculus, Dynamics)

Johann Kepler (Celestial Mechanics, Physical Kepler)

Robert Boyle (Chemistry, Gas Dynamics)

Georges Cuvier (Comparative Anatomy, Vertebrate Paleontology)

Charles Babbage (Computer Science)

Lord Rayleigh (Dimensional Analysis, Model Analysis)

James Clark Maxwell (Electrodynamics, Statistical Thermodynamics))

Michael Faraday (Electromagnetics, Field Theory)

Ambrose Fleming (Electronics)

Lord Kelvin (Energetics, Thermodynamics)

Henri Fabre (Entomology of Living Insects)

George Stokes (Fluid Mechanics)

William Herschel (Galactic Astronomy)

Gregor Mendel (Genetics)

Louis Agassiz (Glacial Geology, Ichthyology)

James Simpson (Gynecology)

Leonardo Da Vinci (Hydraulics)

Matthew Maury (Hydrgraphy, Oceanography)

Blaise Pascal (Hydrostatics)

William Ramsay (Isotopic Chemistry)

John Ray (Natural History)

Bernhard Riemann (Non-Euclldean Geometry)

David Brewster (Optical Mineralogy)

John Woodward (Paleontology)

Rudolph Virchow (Pathology)

James Joule (Reversible Thermodynamics)

Nicholas Steno (Stratigraphy)

Carolus Linnaeus (Systematic Biology)

Humphrey Davy (Thermokinetics)

     All of the above men of science were believers in God and in creation. These founding fathers thought that if they were to study God’s creation within the scope of their science that it would draw them closer to God. As Johann Kepler stated “We are thinking God thoughts after him.” To understand something of God’s creation is to understand something of God’s wisdom.  Today, men of science have lost their founding fathers true focus and purpose in why science studies creation. They have wandered off the path of true science to follow after a misunderstanding science by altering their purpose and objective from trying to understand God to a new world view of proving there is no God.

     Most scientists today don’t believe in miracles, the supernatural or God. They have become non-believing atheists who study God creation, yet do not acknowledge God existence. My research is written for them in the hopes that it may stimulate their intellect and their sense of common reason to see that there is more than what is that we can see, observe and examine.
