369 years ago, 25th of December 1642, in Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth, Lincolnshire, England, was the birth day of one of the greatest men ever to live on this tiny speck floating thru the cosmos. Sir Isaac Newton, English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist and theologian, has been "considered by many to be the greatest and most influential scientist who ever lived." Unfortunately, his birthday has been obscured by worship of fables and irrationality. Although he was an extremely religious person, his contribution to science makes him one of the strongest propagators of logic and reason.
Happy birthday, Sir Isaac!
