Was Sir Isaac Newton superstitious?
In Isaac Newton
Yes. Isaac Newtown was superstitious, as was everyone who lived in his time. He was a Christian, and was influenced by the nonsense of religion, but he was also interested in the occult, and researched the history of ancient rituals of Britain. He believed in ideas such as turning lead into gold through alchemy, and he believed in the significance of numerology. It is no surprise that he counted seven colours in the visible light spectrum, when it is only possible to see six. He added the colour indigo to the spectrum in order to produce a number that was more appealing to him, and his numerological beliefs than the number six.

He was a great scientist who discovered the gravitational pull and discovered three laws of motion. Isaac Newton was an English Physicist, Mathematician, Astronomer, Natural Philosopher, Alchemist and Theologian. He was born in 1642/3 (see related question for details) in Lincolnshire, UK. He studie…d at Trinity College, Cambridge. He is one of the most influential scientists of all time and is most famous for describing the laws of gravity, possibly after observing an apple falling from a tree. In addition he described the three laws of motion which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. Newton showed that the motions of objects on Earth and of celestial bodies are governed by the same set of natural law. In the field of mathematics Newton shares the credit for the development of the differential and integral calculus. The greatest scientist of all time. He invented calculus, described refraction, explained gravity and described forces and motion. He basically invented classical physics, and he did it casually, as he couldn't even be bothered with science most of the time. a scientist who discovered gravity and the three motion laws. Issac newton was the man to discover gravity, invent the reflecting telescope, define the laws of motion and the laws of refraction, determined the nature of orbits, and many other things. Sir Isaac Newton is dead. Who was Newton? He was a scientist who lived in the 1600's - 1700's. He did experimental research in Physics (called Newtonian mechanics for years because he developed much of it) and in Mathematics. He is mostly remembered for his theory of gravity, which many misunderstand. He 'invented' calculus. He worked with light. He invented the first reflecting telescope. Sir Isaac Newton was one of the greatest scientist and mathematicians that ever lived. He was born in England on December 25, 1643. He was born the same year that Galileo died. He lived for 85 years. Isaac Newton was raised by his grandmother. He attented Free Grammar School and then went to Trinity College Cambridge. Newton worked his way through college. While at college he became intrested in math, physics, and atromony. Newton received both a bachelors and masters degree. While Newton was in college he was writing his ideas in a journal. Newton has new ideas about motion, which he called his three laws of motion. He also has ideas about gravity, the diffraction of light, and forces. Newton's ideas were so good that Queen Anne knighted him in 1705. HIs accomplishments laid the foundations for modern science and revolutionized the world. Sir Isaac Newton died in 1727.. Isaac Newton was a scientist from the 17th century, best know for the official "discovery" of gravity. (MORE)
no one he believed in himself so this was the main reasons for his persitance in his work. no one he believed in himself so this was the main reasons for his persitance in his work
He invented infinitesimal calculus, reflecting telescope andexplained gravity. He also invented the newtons. They are themeasurement of some forces.
Isaac Newton's calculas, created in 1666, is a complicated math problem, or formula. There was a controversy over Newton's calculus when, in 1684, a German scientist maned Gottfried Leibniz published a formula of calculus. Newton raged, and claimed that he had originaly discovered calculus, which he… had, and responded by publishing a partial calculus formula in 1693 and a full formula in 1704. Newton still claimed to have invented calculus, but Leibniz would not give up. Finally, Leibniz declared that he had still created calculus, and that his country's scientists would break ties with England's scientists, and eventually get revenge upon England and its scientists for not believing calculus's "rightful" creator. England eventually did get Leibniz'z declared "revenge" in World War 1 & World War 2, though not because Leibniz declared it, and certainly not for the same reasons. The conflict still raged between Newton and Leibniz, but the countries were no longer involved. Newton believed he would win the argument until the day he died. (MORE)
He may have had a cat, it has been suggested that he may have been the inventor of the cat flap however another source suggests he never had a pet although he did grow up on a farm.
Mr. Isaac newton wear a black cloak a white/cream fluffy collared shirt and some grayish puffy pants that landed just before the knee he also wear some wonderful white knee high socks and a slip on shoe that covered most of his foot with a gold buckle on top! FUN FACT: did you know that 3 months b…4 Isaac was born his dad died, and a year after he was born his mother found a NEW husband that didn't allow a baby in his house so his mother- Hannah- left him in the care of his elderly grandparents ! sad huh.

Sir Issac Newton was educated at the Free Grammar School in Grantham in Lincolnshire and then Trinity College, Cambridge. There he obtained his Bachelors and Masters and was appointed Lucasian Professor of Mathematics in 1669.
Sir Isaac Newton was a person who complained how the Church never followed its own teachings and was stressing the fact that the Laws in the Bible should be followed. And we obviously know that many religions oppose Homosexuality, and it's considered immoral, a corrupt practice, and in some relig…ions, punishable by law. Sir Isaac Newton, being a person that concerned over keeping with religious laws can never be gay. So what if he stayed away from women - celibacy was a form of piety at the time, and Newton was certainly a pious person. As for the letters he sent to his friends that seemed "romantic", you have to understand that people express their feelings differently in different words. Nowadays we say "You're my bestest friend in the whole wide world!", but back then it was much classier, lol. (MORE)
Newtonian reflecting telescope and Isaac Newton formulated the three laws of universal gravitation and motion.
They both have to do with the Laws of Physics and the creation of the subject , "Physics."
Sir. Isaac Newton was 85 before he died in 1727 . He lived from (1642-1727) and succeeded in multiple things. If you ask me he lived a great and success life..
Isaac Newton was born on Christmas day in 1642 (using the new calendar, this would be Jan. 4 1643) in Woolsthorpe, a hamlet near Grantham in Lincolnshire. In 1705 he was knighted by Queen Anne, and thus became Sir Isaac Newton. He died in London on March 20, 1727 ( or March 31, using the new style o…f calendar). (MORE)

Between 1290 and 1657 Jews were completely banned from England . Newton was born, the son of a prosperous farmer in Lincolnshire in 1642. The idea of a secret Jew in a rural area of England in Newton's time just doesn't make sense at all.. Until recently it was believed that there were no Jews in E…ngland between 1290 and 1656 but as revealed by the distinguished historian, Cecil Roth, in the History of the Jews in England, Portuguese secret Jews masquerading sometimes as Catholics, other times as Protestants (Marranos) settled in England during the reigns of King Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. .

Born in 1642 . Born same year Galileo died . Born on christmas day . Died 1727 . When he was born premature and wasn't expected to live . He almost became a farmer but he turned out to be a bad one . Newton was very religious . He became apart of the Royal Society but before that he had sen…ded his notes and experiments about gravity and such things and Robert Hooke disagreed and they had a bunch of arguments He invented Calculus (yeah, I find that fun). his tallents are gravity and his education was intrupted by the deadly disease plauge isaac newton was not married ether nor he had children (MORE)
He had a father who died 3 months before he was born, a step-father named Barnabus Smith, and 3 brothers and sisters named Mary, Benjamin, and Hannah
The apple did nothing to Sir Isaac Newton. We are not sure that that even happened. The story goes that when Sir Isaac Newton was in a garden he saw a apple tree fall. That is supposedly when he discovered gravity.
Yes Sir Isaac Newton is famous because he was the first one to learn about gravity
Isaac Newton did all of his work in Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire in England. It was also where he was born.

There various ways through which Sir Isaac Newton had fun. The mostcommon ways included taking his dog for a walk and spending time inhis laboratory doing some research.
Yes, in fact he was engaged to a Miss Anne Storer, the step daughter of the apothacry he stayed with whilst he was at school. They never married and Newton remained single.
Very, very smart guy. He came up with the basic concept of gravity, invented calculus, and just was an all around genius.
Though Newton claimed to be self-taught, it is predicted that he was taught by Robert Hooke. It is also thought that after Hooke's death, Newton stole some of his ideas and claimed them as his own. After Hooke's death, a great number of his published works went missing from a library very few had ac…cess to and Newton was one of those selected individuals. (MORE)
Newton wanted to learn more about gravity. He did his own expirements and the outcome always made his want to learn more. Newton has discovered many laws known as the Newton Laws.

For the same reason Paul McCartney is known as "Sir": He was knighted by the Queen (a different queen in each case, of course; Elizabeth II isn't that old).
Yes he was he spent almost 60 years of life studying and researching through science
Sir Isaac Newton is the founder of the classical mechanics. His three laws of motion, gravitational laws, etc. are the most fundamental & basic laws of nature. Galileo was great man earlier to Sir Isaac Newton. He modified & improved the telescope which was the first telescope made during his time… & observed the solar system. He also made some good observation on gravity & various other fields which were later improved & modified by Newton. Both this great men are the founder of the science which we study. (MORE)
Sir isaac newton is a scientist that came up with newtons third law of motion Whitch is An object in motion wants to stay in motion and an object at rest wants to stay in rest

Sir Isaac Newton Liked To do inventing stuff And Created Mechanical stuff for poor people so they wont be so bored
"I do not know what I may seem to the world, but, as to myself . I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore. and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pepple or prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me".
A Ms. Storey, but he never actually married her, he was engaged in his late teens.
Sir Isaac Newton considered himself a Christian, but his ideas werevery different from the Anglican church that he was raised in. Hehad many of his own ideas as to what Christianity should be. Forinstance, he did not believe in the Holy Trinity, which would havebeen illegal to have actually say duri…ng that time. (MORE)
he proved that there was a force called gravity. the moon's gravity causes water to rise.
He died in his sleep, 31 March 1727 at the age of 84. His body was later found to contain a high concentration of mercury, probably accounting for his odd behaviors later in life..
being an epic scientist ~ Sir Isaac Newton made plenty of scientific discoveries- tough the most famous is gravity, he also discovered the Three Universal Laws of Motion, which was then made into basic Physics by him. This helped prove Copernicus's theory of the planets orbiting the Sun. He also …made the Binomial Theorem and was one of the two creators of calculus. Ultimately, his discoveries were predecessors to discoveries made by the other great scientists, such as Einstein. -Ben ~ (MORE)
He got concussion from being hit on the head with an apple... and your grammar is waaay off
