D'souza is also one of those that argues that it was under the Christian influence that gave Newton the desire to discover the laws that govern the order God had placed in nature. This assumption did help early physics get its start, and don't tell me Newton wasn't a christian. However, careful study of the resulting laws and theories of the Scientific revolution, and basic logical philosophy, demonstrates the ridiculousness of believing any religion. Newton had some things right, and some things wrong.

We ought to stand on the shoulders of giants, not sit at the feet of trolls, like D'souza and Moses.
