Sir Isaac Newton was the president of the Royal Society from 1703 till his death.
He wrote one of the most important scientific books ever, Principia, 1687, in which he stated:
“This most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent 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.”

In Optics, 1704, Newton wrote:
“God in the beginning formed matter.”
Sir Isaac Newton devoted more time to the study of Scripture than to science:
“I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by those who were inspired. I study the Bible daily.”
Captivated by Bible prophecy, Sir Isaac Newton wrote, Observations on the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John (published in 1733), in which he wrote:
“Daniel was in the greatest credit amongst the Jews…And to reject his prophecies, is to reject the Christian religion. For this religion is founded upon his prophecy concerning the Messiah.”
Newton concluded his introductory chapter:
“Daniel is most distinct in order of time, and easiest to be understood, and therefore in those things which relate to the last times, he must be made the key to the rest.”
Regarding the Bible, Newton wrote:
“The system of revealed truth which this Book contains is like that of the universe, concealed from common observation yet the labors of the centuries have established its Divine origin.”
In A Short Scheme of the True Religion, Sir Isaac Newton wrote:
“Atheism is so senseless and odious to mankind that it never had many professors.”
