Newton was a figure of undisputed genius and innovation. In all his science (including chemistry) he saw mathematics and numbers as central. He did a lot of work on biblical numerology, and, though aspects of his beliefs were not orthodox, he thought theology very important. In his system of physics, God is essential to the nature and absoluteness of space.

Albert Einstein

1879 - 1955

Albert Einstein was born into a Jewish family and had a lifelong respect for his Jewish heritage.Einstein's Jewish background and upbringing were significant to him, and his Jewish identity was strong, increasingly so as he grew older.

He contributed to the statistical, probabilistic, uncertain interpretation of quantum experiments known as the Copenhagen Interpretation.
