Today, Sir Isaac Newton is famous for his scientific achievements. He redeveloped physics for the Western world during the 17th century. His discovery of the gravitational laws dominated physics before Einstein’s special and general relativity theory.
Science is getting as bad as Creationism in one way. It’s refusing to even consider its own principles. “Thou shalt have no other equation” could easily be applied to E=mc2, and whole new concepts are routinely relegated to heresy/science fiction.
