Michael Faraday on Cosmos tonight.
Maybe you can tell us all everything that he got wrong.
I have posted about Micahel Faraday being the father of modern physics and a very devout Christian several times on here. In fact he was of a very fundamental sect that has since gone extinct.
Every bit of modern physics is based upon his research of EM.
Topix atheists like to make a lot of noise about religion stifling science. It was a devout theist that created the science they worship now.
Done told these folks dozens of time.
Jesus won. This world is Christianized.
All men or nearly all men before modern geology and the true age of Earth was discovered.
Before the bones of the hominids were found and evolution was prove a reality, believed in the bible and all men sought to verify those things written.
But what we found was modern geology the true age of Earth and evolution , all in conflict to the scriptures. If Faraday lived today,,he wouldn't have the same religious zeal , nor would Newton. They sadly did not have access to the knowledge we do today.
But they were the pioneers to teaching us how to find out the things they did not yet know.
For this they are great men, the great thing about Faraday, is he without an education learned to use the scientific method to discover many things. He used experimentation to come to many foundations of modern physics. Even Einstein admired this, but even Einstein was disappointed in what he discovered about the nature of reality.
