I know that you don’t know much about Newton based on your comment but what you know or don’t know is of relatively little importance to me. But for the record Newton didn’t just “dabble” in religion, he was consumed by it.

Considering he pretty much definde science and methodological naturalism, that seems a bit odd. Either he was schizophrenic, or he understood that religion and science occupy separate and distinct spheres of knowledge.

Either way, I don’t follow the argument in the thread starting article. Scientists can be religious, but science does not study miracles.
