What motivates research at the Academy? HISTORY OF SCIENCE the Christian world gave birth in a clear, articulate fashion to the experimental method of science itself. Loren Eiseley, Darwins Century (Garden City, NY, Doubleday, 1958, Doubleday Anchor Books, 1961), p.62. HISTORY OF SCIENCE
Hebrew and Christian belief in a deity who was at once a Creator and Law-giver rendered [the idea of the laws of nature] valid. A.R. Hall, Historian In Science & Math, Researchers see Gods Laws in Creation. The Beauty of Creation Motivation?
Premise #1: Some Scientists, Engineers and Mathematicians embrace a belief in God. Motivation for research, in certain cases, stems in part from their curiosity of discovering Gods creation and the awe and remarkable beauty of the relationships they uncover. Science brings man nearer to God Louis Pasteur The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of the Creator. Into his tiniest creatures, God has placed extraordinary
properties ... Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) God is going to to reveal to us things He never revealed before if we put our hands in His.

Namesakes God observed in nature... [The] beautiful system of the the sun, planets and comets could only proceed from the councel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being. Isaac Newton From Opticks by Isaac Newton
God in the beginning formed matter in solid, massy, hard, impenetrable, moveable particles, of such sizes and figures, and with other such properties, and in such proportion to space, as most conduced to the end for which He formed them. Newton on Atheism Atheism is so senseless and odious
to mankind that it never had many professors. Michael Faraday (1791-1867) Michael Faraday... Namesakes F= 96 485.309 C/ mol [Faradays] standard of duty was supernatural. It was formed entirely on
what he held to be the revelation of the will of God in the written word, and throughout all his life his faith led him to act ... to the the very letter of it. Faradays Motivation Faraday was offered and refused the Presidency of the Royal Society. He responded no "I must remain plain Michael

There is one God, the Father, ever-living, omnipresent, omniscient, almighty, the Maker of heaven and earth, and one Mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus. Sir Isaac Newton Isaac Newton on Christ We account the Scriptures of God to be the most
Newtons Proclamation sublime philosophy. I find more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history whatsoever... Worshiping God and the Lamb [Jesus Christ] in the temple: God, for his benefaction in creating all things, and the Lamb, for his benefaction in redeeming us with his blood. Sir Isaac Newton
Faraday: Speculations [T]hough the thought of death brings the thought of judgment, it also brings to the Christian thought of Him [Jesus Christ] who died, [and] rose again for the justification of those who believe in Him. Michael Faraday Speculations! I know nothing about speculations. Im resting on certainties. `I know my Redeemer liveth and because He lives I shall also live. purported to Faraday near death when queried by reporters about speculations of life after death .
Christ [is] the power of God and the wisdom of God. The Christian religion is a revelation and that revelation is the Word of God. Michael Faraday Faradays faith in Christ
James Clerk Maxwell Think what God has determined to do to all those who submit themselves to his righteousness and are willing to receive his gift [of eternal life in Jesus Christ]. They are to be conformed to the image of his Son and when that is fulfilled and God sees they are conformed to the image of Christ, there can be no more condemnation. James Clerk Maxwell.
Blaise Pascal We know God only through Jesus Christ through Jesus Christ we know God. All who have pretended to know God, and prove Him without Jesus Christ, have only had impotent proofs.

"Thy God and my God." (Jn 20:17) Forgetfulness of the world and of everything, except God. He is to be found only in the ways taught in the Gospel. Greatness of the Human Soul. "Righteous Father, the world hath not known Thee, But I have known Thee." (Jn 17:25) Joy, joy, joy, tears of joy. I have separated myself from Him. "They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters." (Jn 2:13) "My God, wilt Thou leave me?" (Mt 27:46) Let me not be separated from Him eternally. "This is eternal life,That they might know Thee, the only true God, And Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast
