Today on Far Future Calling we will offer an entirely different portrait of one of the greatest minds in science-Sir Isaac Newton.
Newton was the brilliant scientist who formulated the laws of motion that bear his name and the discoverer of the law of universal gravitation, but he was also an alchemist and a theologian.
This documentary uncovers for the first time the original manuscript where Newton forecast the date of the end of the world.
Newton, the father of modern mathematics, dedicated a large part of his life to a quest to decode the Bible which he believed to be the word of God.
For over fifty years, he studied the Bible trying to unravel God's secret laws of the Universe. He was fanatical in his quest to discover the date for the Second Coming of Christ and the end of the world.
Isaac Newton was one of the world’s first great experimental and theoretical physicist but, perhaps he was also one of the last of the great magicians of the medieval tradition.
