Newton was a very impressive chap who was the co-inventor of calculus and a lot more. At last we had a grand theory of everything (kinda) that convinced many that God was/is a mathematician, slightly better than Newton. So they looked in the Bible to try to find "evidence" to support this notion. "Go fourth and multiply" perhaps (sic). Some have found a value of pi in the Holy Writ, although, with not many decimal places. How about the book of Numbers ? That seemed promising. The name certainly put me off the book, as numbers are hard (read it - it's actually rather good fun and a little scary). Sadly, the Bible, or any other Holy Book is stony ground as regards mathematics. You will not find any proof of Poincare's Conjecture or Fermat's last theorem. Perhaps, when God was dictating the Bible, he knew the scribes were not up to it. However, what he could have said was something like this... "I've got some very useful information for you, to save a lot of time. You may not understand now, but write it down for later. The Earth is like a big ball and curved space-time keeps it orbiting around the sun. The sun is just another star in one of many galaxies in a finite but bounded universe. There is something that I will call "electricity". It's the movement of tiny charged particles. If you move a copper wire in a magnetic field, electricity will flow in the wire. I know that sounds complicated and esoteric, but work on it and you'll be amazed. By the way, lightning is electricity. If you attach a copper wire to the top of my house and stick the other end in the ground, the lightning will travel harmlessly into the ground. That will protect my house from damage during storms. Don't bother trying to cast out demons. It doesn't work. Disease is often caused by tiny little animals, not demons. Try making instruments to magnify small and big things. Do not burn anyone who disagrees with your opinions. Think about what I've told you and if you have any questions, ask !"
