Faith of Famous Astronomers, and a church organist discovering a planet - Sir William Herschel - American Minute with Bill Federer
Sir Isaac Newton constructed one of the first practical reflecting telescopes.
He wrote in Principia, 1687:
"This most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being ...
All variety of created objects which represent order and life in the universe could happen only by the willful reasoning of its original Creator, whom I call the 'Lord God.'"
