In some historical, scientific, religious traditions and research much controversy has surrounded the arena of the entire creation of everything possibly imaginable and then we as infants are so limited to a sure intelligent answer or solutions to such imaginations or fantasy’s about the entire scope and power of the true God of all. We often hear about the scientific approach of the creation as “The Big Bang Theory” and some get the both confused when dealing with religious institutions or churches. The church universal during the Galileo era had him arrested and imprisoned for such thoughts of folly as well as the famed astrologist Johannes Kepler was impaled for going against the orders of the church.

Laws of the Universe. - 2 In part 2 of the equation series. How Newton united physics and astronomy, and brought us face to face with one of the most mysterious and terrifying objects in the Universe. Mutual Attraction Medieval astronomy was dominated by the writings of Aristotle. Aristotle divided motion into earthly lines and heavenly circles, so the planets must surely move about us in perfect circles. Astronomers soon learned this wasn’t true, but the physics of Aristotle was so deeply rooted in the minds of scholars that astronomers imposed circular motion upon the heavens for a thousand years. When a single circle could not describe the motion of a planet, they placed circles upon circles (known as epicycles), each rotating just so, to match a planet’s motion. As more precise measurements of the planets were made, more epicycles were needed. Then in the early seventeenth century Johannes Kepler published three simple rules that described the motion of the planets. They are now known as Kepl ...

Without exception, the response to the Post-Gutenberg Revolution, by traditional publishers and the major chain bookstores, as well as most of the independents, has been to cry foul and seek ways to circle the wagons, attempting to close off all the more to the change that they are indisputably incapable of controlling.

The Man Who Unlocked the Secrets of the Solar System BY AWAKE! WRITER IN GERMANY SIXTEENTH-CENTURY Europeans regarded comets with awe. So when a comet made famous by Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe was visible in the night sky, Katharina Kepler got her six-year-old son, Johannes, out of bed to see it. Over 20 years later, when Brahe died, whom did Emperor Rudolf II appoint to replace him as imperial mathematician? At 29 years of age, Johannes Kepler became the imperial mathematician to the Holy Roman Emperor, a position he held for the rest of his life. Mathematics is not the only science in which Kepler is held in high esteem. He distinguished himself in the fields of optics and astronomy. Kepler, small in stature, had an astonishing intellect and also a resolute character. He suffered discrimination when he would not convert to Roman Catholicism, even under great pressure. Mathematical Genius Johannes Kepler was born in 1571 in Weil der Stadt, a small town on the edge of the German Black Forest. The famil ...
"Horoscopes is Not of God," but in bible days the stars and the moon were used to establish "time " as we know it today ,for finding directions, navigation on the high seas,naming seasons and also to determine the Jewish festivals (Passover) ,Yom Kippur(The most important Jewish holiday) etc. In bible times Astrology was Used by man to determine "time ".Its Astronomy that has to do with the Studying of the universe,and "Stars " like we know it in horoscopes today. A long time ago, astronomy and astrology were the same. People studied the motions of the planets and hoped to used them to predict not only the behavior of the heavens, but also wars, natural disasters, the rise and fall of kings, and other earthly matters. However, around the time of Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei and Isaac Newton, astronomers came to realize that astrology was basically bunk. From that time on, the primary job of an astronomer was to use physics to understand what was going on in the sky. I hope that cleared up any controve ...
Watching COSMOS tonight, I had 2 great realizations. The first: it seems like a lot of great Scientific minds in history were devout Christians. Charles Darwin, Michael Faraday, Nicholas Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei, Rene Descartes, Sir Isaac Newton, Gregor Mendel (was a monk). I make this observation only to *** off right-wingers who make a big deal out of hating Science by saying it's "Godless". The second realization: why right-wingers hate Science so much. I'll deliver that essay later.
WOW...The Ultimate Message! (Read carefully if you have time) - "In 1514 A.D. Copernicus had the idea that the sun was stationary at the center and the earth and the planet moved in circular orbits around the sun. Nearly a century passed before the idea was taken seriously, when Johannes Kepler and Galileo Galilei started publicly to support it. It was the death blow to the Ptolemy model according to which the earth stood at the center surrounded by the moon, sun, stars and five planets. In 1929 Hubble observations showed that the sun is also rotating around the galaxy." - A Brief History of Time (Stephen Hawking) - Quran in around 600 A.D. : "He has subjected the sun and the moon (to continue going round)! Each running (its course) for a term appointed." - Surah Ar-Raad (Verse 2) - "Before the 20th century, no one had suggested that the universe was expanding or contracting. Even those who realized that Newton's theory of gravity (1687) showed that the universe could not be static did not think to sugges ...
List of Famous Scientists in History Charles Darwin (1564 - 1642) "On the origin of species by means of natural selection" is Darwin's famous book published in 1859. Johannes Kepler (1571 - 1630) Kepler compiled the Mars data which enabled him to propose the "Three Laws of Planetary Motion". Louis Pasteur (1822 - 1895) Some of his works are: separation of mirror image molecules and effect of polarized light, and identification of the parasite that was killing silkworms.
Certainly Johannes Kepler felt that way, it's just that he didn't let his religion get in the way of doing his science.
"The five petalled rose pattern traced over eight years in the skies above earth by our nearest neighbor, Venus, depicted 400 years ago by the German astronomer, Johannes Kepler.

Wow! While one recent writer to the newspaper portrayed believers in God as ignorant fools, he sure made a lot of ignorant statements for all to see. It appears that the writer was a graduate of what has become our governments premier brainwashing systems called public education. Let me shed a little truth on the ridiculous assumption that "religion and science can't exist in the same realm of probability." While all of these famous scientists were not Christian, they all believed in a Creator: Nicholas Copernicus was the Polish astronomer who put forward the first mathematically based system of planets going around the sun and was also a devout Christian (so much for the claim that we teach that the sun goes around the earth); Sir Francis Bacon was a philosopher who is known for establishing the scientific method of inquiry based on experimentation and inductive reasoning. He rejected atheism as being the product of shallow philosophy; Johannes Kepler was a brilliant mathematician and astronomer. H ...

"Equipped with five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure science." -Edward Hubble (May, 1929) "Philosophy is written in this grand book --I mean the universe which stands continually open to our gaze, but the book cannot be understood unless one first learns to comprehend the language and the characters in which it is written. It is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometrical figures, without which it is humanly impossible to understand a single word of it; without these, one is wandering around in a dark labyrinth." --Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) "Geometry supplied God with a model for the creation of the world. Geometry was implanted into human nature along with God's image and not through man's visual perception and experience." --Johannes Kepler (1571-1630)
"Silenced Voices" by Ethan G. (Grade 9) On February 14, 1989, the spiritual leader of Iran called on all devout Muslims to kill Salman Rushdie because of references to the prophet Mohammed in his novel The Satanic Verses. In response, thousands of people worldwide showed their solidarity by wearing "I am Salman Rushdie" buttons. Rushdie went into hiding until 1998, emerging only when the order was lifted. In a world without the freedom to read, I am Salman Rushdie. I am 460 Confucian scholars who were suffocated to death so that recorded history would begin with the reign of Emperor Shih Huang Ti. I am Martin Luther whose Ninety-Five Theses was burned, but not before it set the stage for the Protestant Reformation.

Galileo, Hubble and the Triumph of Science Two mathematicians, Rene Descartes (1596-1650) and Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) helped the cause with their advancements in the quantitative fields of analysis. Descartes created algebraic geometry and co-authored the sine law of refraction. And while Kepler was busy keeping ahead of the ubiquitous religious tyrants of his day he nevertheless still found the time to develop the laws of planetary motion that proved the orbits of the planets were elliptical not circular. Scientists now had a substantial repertoire of mathematical armaments that they could use to develop physics and further their understanding of our natural world. Sir Isaac Newton (1643 – 1727), regarded by many to be the most brilliant primate to ever walk the planet, successfully tied together the work of his predecessors and for good measure invented calculus as the zenith in this evolving chain of scientific discovery. The publication of Copernicus’ disobedient heliocentric ideas very near . ...

Darkness at Night: Olbers’ Paradox One of the most basic and important observations of cosmology is that the sky is dark at night. This is true when we observe the sky ourselves on a dark night, and it remains true when one considers the most sensitive optical images of the Universe ever made by the Hubble Space Telescope. There is “black space” between the galaxies. Scientists such as Johannes Kepler (in about 1610) and Edmund Halley (in the 1700’s) realized the importance of this observation quite early. The German astronomer Heinrich Olbers popularized this issue around 1826, and it has come to be known as Olbers’ paradox (even though Olbers did not make major progress in resolving the paradox). Why is the sky dark at night? To understand why this is a deeply profound question, let’s consider the case of a universe that is infinitely large, infinitely old, and uniformly filled with stars. In such a universe, one’s line of sight in any direction should always intersect a star’s surface e ...

An international team of astronomers used ALMA to observe the glowing remains of Supernova 1987A, which is in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a dwarf galaxy orbiting the Milky Way about 160 000 light‐years from Earth. SN 1987A is the closest observed supernova explosion since Johannes Kepler's observation of a supernova inside the Milky Way in 1604.

Happy birthday, Louis Pasteur! Happy birthday, Johannes Kepler! Hope you both have a great day, and thank you.
Happy 442nd Birthday, Johannes Kepler. Your law of planetary motion has a great influence.
Happy birthday, Johannes Kepler He was a mathematician and an astronomer. He is regarded as one of the most important astronomers of the 17th century.
Johannes Kepler published his first two laws in 1609, having found them by analyzing the astronomical observations of Tycho Brahe.[2] Kepler's third law was published in 1619.[2]
"The diversity of the phenomena of nature is so great, and the treasures hidden in the heavens so rich, precisely in order that the human mind shall never be lacking in fresh nourishment." -- Johannes Kepler, born on this day in 1571

Time Line in Space Exploration: On This Date: December 27 Johannes Kepler (1571 – 1630) Born: 27 Dec 1571 in Weil der Stadt, Württemberg, Holy Roman Empire (now Germany) was the German mathematician who, in 1609, figured out the equations for orbiting planets & satellites - that they move in ellipses (flattened circles). He gave three fundamental laws of planetary motion. His equations are used today for calculating orbits for satellites and planets. He also did important work in optics and geometry December 27, 1982 : John Leonard "Jack" Swigert, Jr., diedied December 27, 1982 was a NASA astronaut, one of the 24 persons who have flown to the Moon. Before joining NASA, Swigert was a test pilot. After leaving NASA, he was elected to the United States House of Representatives, but died before being sworn in. After unsuccessfully applying for NASA's second and third astronaut selections,[1] Swigert was accepted into the astronaut corps as part of NASA Astronaut Group 5, in April 1966. Swigert beca ...
Sir Isaac Newton (well known as God of calculus) was born in the county of Lincolnshire, England on the 25th day of December in 1643. His father died just months before he was born, and when he was three years old, his mother left him in the care of his grandmother. He died a virgin on the 20th March 1727 (84yrs). Isaac was always a top student, and went off to the University of Cambridge at age 19. While at Cambridge, Newton was influenced by the writings of Galileo, Nicholas Copernicus, and Johannes Kepler. By 1665, Newton began developing a mathematical theory that would lead to the development of calculus, one of the fundamental branches of mathematics. Newton would go on to discover other important math theories such as Newton’s Identities, and Newton’s Method. Today as Mathematicians, we remember him, his writings and his fruitful theories. let us rejoice in his name. Merry Christmas mathematicians!

1939, the German playwright Bertolt Brecht castigated Nazi policies by writing a play about Galileo’s heroic behaviour under prosecution by the Catholic Inquisition. To construct his political parallel, Brecht drew on the appealing mythology of a prolonged war in which scientific revolutionaries- Nicolas Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei- battle against religious bigots to place the Sun at the centre of the Universe. Victorian scientists depicted these men as martyrs to reason who sacrificed themselves to keep the flame of truth alight, an image of confrontation between science and religion that still remains popular. Yet when viewed from their own perspective, all three were deeply religious, and more concerned about their own lives than in carving out any straight road towards the future." . "Brecht served his own rhetorical ends by perpetuating their simplified view of a hero battling against Catholic oppression, but it was scientific propagandists who launched the notion that science and ...

Today in Geek History -November 6th 1492 The Ensisheim Meteorite, the first meteorite with a known date of impact, strikes the Earth in a wheat field outside the village of Ensisheim, Alsace, France at near noon. 1631 Pierre Gassendi first observes the transit of a planet. Johannes Kepler had predicted a transit of Mercury would occur in 1631. When Gassendi observed the dot of Mercury passing across the face of the Sun with a Galilean telescope by projecting the sun’s image on a screen of paper. He will recount the observation in Mercurius in sole visus (“Mercury in the Face of the Sun”) in 1632. 1908 Professor Ernest Rutherford announces in London that he had isolated a single atom of matter. 1911 Alan Archibald Campbell-Swinton, in his presidential address to the Röntgen Society in London, suggests that high-definition television is possible with cathode ray tubes.

Camera For other uses, see Camera (disambiguation). A rangefinder camera. Ciné-Kodak Special II - 16mm movie camera (ca. 1948) A camera is an optical instrument that records images that can be stored directly, transmitted to another location, or both. These images may be still photographs or moving images such as videos or movies. The term camera comes from the word camera obscura (Latin for "dark chamber"), an early mechanism for projecting images. The modern camera evolved from the camera obscura. Functional description HistoryEdit Main article: History of the camera How a camera obscura works: Light from a real object enters a dark room or box through a small hole. An inverted image of the object is created on the wall opposite the small hole. A smaller hole results in a sharper, but dimmer, image.[1] The forerunner to the photographic camera was the camera obscura.[2] In the fifth century B.C., the Chinese philosopher Mo Ti noted that a pinhole can form an inverted and focused image, when light passe ...
