Indeed Newton's theories left a permanent mark on humanity. The paradoxical way in which his intentions to glorify God weakened religion on a worldwide scale would have mortified him.1 Although history most reveres Newton as a scientific genius, his theological knowledge was also outstanding.

How does everything work? These are seminal questions that plagued our ancestors and currently plague us. Answering seemingly impossible questions is the role of science, specifically physics, in humanity. At the forefront of the quest to understand everything was Aristotelian physics. While in the future Aristotelian physics would turn out to be completely incorrect, his original ideas and theories were critical for developing modern science as we know it today.
Through these investigations, the physicist and non-physicist alike will gain a sense of the extraordinary mind that this "half genius, half buffoon" exercised daily--for his love of physics, and for his love of life (Dyson 1989, p. 34).

This has been called the realm of the relative and from a shamanic perspective as well as a scientific one this is absolutely true. It is also often overlooked and ignored, although this is one of the biggest mistakes that one can make. Why is this? Let us first look at it from the scientific or Ordinary Reality perspective. Many scholars, researchers, and scientist claim that the greatest discovery in mankind’s history was actually made by Professor Albert Einstein and is called the “Theory of Relativity.” The reason they say this is that by being able to explain and understand how everything relates to everything else is the key to advancing or evolving our knowledge about everything.
Informative Speech Scientists Einstein and Heisenberg A. Introduction My Speech is about the scientists who had the main influence on our current time and have shaped our contemporary view of the world (Also called in Theology the "Zeitgeist"). I have chosen two of them who were in many ways just opposites. One is extremely famous and the other is almost unknown except to specialists. The most famous is of course Albert Einstein.
Never lose a holy curiosity” (Albert Einstein). This quote illustrates the fundamental philosophy of Albert Einstein and provides an insight into the mind of a theoretical physicist and a maverick that revolutionized physics in the early Twentieth Century. It is exceedingly difficult to identify an area of human life that Albert Einstein has not profoundly influenced for instance, when you turn on your television, send a text on your cell phone or rely on the global positioning satellite in your car to guide you to your journey's end. All of these advances in modern technologies are a direct offspring of the seed that Albert Einstein planted in the scientific community. This is a story about the accomplishments of Albert Einstein, a man who changed the world with his sheer intellect, the obstacles that he had to overcome, and a glimpse into a world where Albert Einstein may have never existed and what that world may be like.
Although some considered his nontraditional lifestyle a hindrance, he pushed through the inevitable and continued on with his life. There is no question that Albert Einstein is still the most influential scientist of the twentieth century or that his accomplishments have greatly influenced today’s science world.
It was his work that was to be genius of modern physics. Lastly, Newton was not that nice, but he was a powerful man. All these great scientists paved a way for our humankind. Our human kind is thrilled to know how our universe was created. All these theories lack observational evidence.
Albert Einstein was one of the greatest minds in world history. Einstein is known as a brilliant physicist who contributed more to the scientific world than any other person. His theories on relativity paved the way for how science currently views time, space, energy, and gravity. Einstein was so advanced in his thinking that his studies and work set the standards for the control of scientific energy and space explorations currently being studied in the field of astrophysics. Einstein, like most brilliant minds, was also an eccentric who set himself apart from people and family to research in solitude while being a public figure supporting issues that he believed in.
This was only one of the major breakthroughs that Einstein made in 1905 and his best work was yet to come in later years. Mass-Energy Equivalence is the concept that the mass of an object or system is the measurement of its energy content. “E=mc2 is a sequence of special relativity”. Although the Algebra in the equation is very basic, it demonstrates an inherent fundamental difficulty for direct experimental verification, This formula is one of the most popular and important in the world of physics, according to (Dr. Michael Jentschel). E=mc2 basically explains that energy and mass are interchangeable, they are the same thing in different forms , This equation helps us understand the most basic natural process of the universe.
