The Newton Papers by Sarah Dry

The Newton Papers: The Strange and True Odyssey of Isaac Newton’s Manuscripts
Requirements: .PDF reader, 4 MB
Overview: When Isaac Newton died in 1727 without a will, he left behind a wealth of papers that, when examined, gave his followers and his family a deep sense of unease. Some of what they contained was wildly heretical and alchemically obsessed, hinting at a Newton altogether stranger and less palatable than the one enshrined in Westminster Abbey as the paragon of English rationality. These manuscripts had the potential to undermine not merely Newton’s reputation, but that of the scientific method he embodied. They were immediately suppressed as "unfit to be printed," and, aside from brief, troubling glimpses spread across centuries, the papers would remain hidden from sight for more than seven generations.

In The Newton Papers, Sarah Dry illuminates the tangled history of these private writings over the course of nearly three hundred years, from the long span of Newton’s own life into the present day. The writings, on subjects ranging from secret alchemical formulas to impassioned rejections of the Holy Trinity, would eventually come to light as they moved through the hands of relatives, collectors, and scholars. The story of their disappearance, dispersal, and rediscovery is populated by a diverse cast of characters who pursued and possessed the papers, from economist John Maynard Keynes to controversial Jewish Biblical scholar Abraham Yahuda. Dry’s captivating narrative moves between these varied personalities, depicting how, as they chased the image of Newton through the thickets of his various obsessions, these men became obsessed themselves with the allure of defining the "true" Newton.

Unbelievable by Michael Newton Keas

Unbelievable: 7 Myths About the History and Future of Science and Religion by Michael Newton Keas
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.2 MB
Overview: Unbelievable explodes seven of the most popular and pernicious myths about science and religion. Michael Newton Keas, a historian of science, lays out the facts to show how far the conventional wisdom departs from reality. He also shows how these myths have proliferated over the past four centuries and exert so much influence today, infiltrating science textbooks and popular culture.
The seven myths, Keas shows, amount to little more than religion bashing-especially Christianity bashing.
Unbelievable reveals:
Why the “Dark Ages” never happened
Why we didn’t need Christopher Columbus to prove the earth was round
Why Copernicus would be shocked to learn that he supposedly demoted humans from the center of the universe
What everyone gets wrong about Galileo’s clash with the Church, and why it matters today
Why the vastness of the universe does not deal a blow to religious belief in human significance
How the popular account of Giordano Bruno as a “martyr for science” ignores the fact that he was executed for theological reasons, not scientific ones
How a new myth is being positioned to replace religion-a futuristic myth that sounds scientific but isn’t
In debunking these myths, Keas shows that the real history is much more interesting than the common narrative of religion at war with science.
This accessible and entertaining book offers an invaluable resource to students, scholars, teachers, homeschoolers, and religious believers tired of being portrayed as anti-intellectual and anti-science.
