This thing [a scale model of our solar system] is but a puny imitation of a much grander system whose laws you know, and I am not able to convince you that this mere toy is without a designer and maker; yet you, as an atheist, profess to believe that the great original from which the design is taken has come into being without either designer or maker! Now tell me by what sort of reasoning do you reach such an incongruous conclusion?” – Sir Isaac Newton

In his old age, Newton wrote a number of religious tracts dealing with the literal interpretation of the Bible.

A manuscript he sent to John Locke in which he disputed the existence of the Trinity was never published.

He also devoted a great deal of time to alchemy.

After his death, Newton's body was discovered to have had massive amounts of mercury in it.

Mercury poisoning could explain Newton's eccentricity in late life.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I started to get real income.
It's all about how to select a proper companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
