- Isaac Newton (1642-1727) : Isaac Newton extended the work of Galileo by showing that the motion of all objects in the universe could be explained by his Law of gravitation. Although Newton believed in God, he believed that God's will could not be evoked as an explanation of any physical phenomenon. Newton viewed the universe as a complex machine that God had created, set in motion, and then abandoned.
