Some atheists, like Neil deGrasse Tyson, have miscast Newton as a mechanist and a materialist, in their own image.
Newton, Kepler, and other founders of modern science were inspired to search out and find the rational order hidden in nature because they were theists.
Dr. Axe devotes a lecture to scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s objection to intelligent design based on supposedly “stupid design” in nature.
If others have been hailed as the “father of intelligent design” (Michael Behe) or the “godfather” (Phillip Johnson), then Jon Buell was the “matchmaker.”
Among other design inspirations, the “ultimate non-stick coating” developed at McMaster University is based on the lotus leaf.
