Virtually every aspect of modern life rests, in some way, on Isaac Newton’s findings. So it’s no surprise that everyone, even biblical creationists, wants to claim him as their hero. But we need to be careful. Whose side is he really on?

To misrepresent and discredit creationists by comparing their position to a belief in a flat earth is a straw-man fallacy.
