Apple Drops In Today's Google

Have you noticed todays Google animated doodle? If not, better open your browser and type and see the awesome animated doodle where an apple dropped.

This doodle was created in recognition of Sir Isaac Newton. Isaac Newton was born on January 4, 1643 and today is his 366th birthday, if he’s still alive today. People around the world were twitting about it, spreading the oh-so-awesome and fantastic news about the animated doodle.

The apple dropping from today’s Google doodle points to his first law of motion. In the absence of force, a body either is at rest or moves in a straight line with constant speed.

In layman’s term, “An object in motion will stay in motion and an object at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon by an external force” or “A body persists in a state of uniform motion or of rest unless acted upon by an external force.

"Newton remains influential to scientists, as demonstrated by a 2005 survey of members of Britain's Royal Society (formerly headed by Newton) asking who had the greater effect on the history of science, Newton or Albert Einstein. Royal Society scientists deemed Newton to have made the greater overall contribution. In 1999, leading physicists from all over the world voted Einstein "greatest physicist ever;" Newton was the runner-up.

Newton was also highly religious, though an unorthodox Christian, writing more on Biblical hermeneutics and occult studies than the natural science for which he is remembered for today." (Wikipedia)

Happy Birthday Isaac!

    Yes it is ironic, because during Isaac's time, very few scientists believed in the existence of God.
