No one is denying Isaac Newton's outward, sociopolitical identity, which is as you described. However, his internal "identity" as a person is comprised of his worldview, which apparently included much that the Church of his day would have called heresy. If John Maynard Keynes was a Newton scholar, then it would have to have been a sideline. Change probably wrote about newton as a fellow Cantabrian.
John Maynard Keynes was one of the greatest economists that ever lived. Raymond , August 28, PM. John Keynes may be considered one of the greatest economists who ever lived, but he economics were sure wrong, as he espoused a variant of the failed economic system called socialism. In the economic sphere, nobody has improved on Adam Smith's discovery of capitalism, although modern day economic giants such as Milton Friedman and Thomas Sowell have explained such ideas in a more modern-day context. Most Interesting Indeed. Pearlman , August 28, PM.
Historic documents should not be touched by hand because of dirt and oil. Sanitary gloves should be worn. That's why Torah pointers are used. Simply Awesome to know that the greatest mathematician of all time actually heard of and read Maimonides and Rashi, among many others. Anonymous , August 28, PM. To me, this is further and rather dramatic evidence that we Jews really are the most remarkable people who ever walked the face of the Earth. Newton was simply a god of the gaps believer.
What ever he didn't know he cast it in the realm of beliefs and hypothesis. He was able to work untethered from the church because he Did not threaten them in a language they understood. Newtons work in fact marginalized religion and spoke to the world in a none cultural non religious terms. He did this in a world when religion ruled.

Nash claims that for Locke "belief is free, determined not by the text, but by the reader's judgment of the text" But precisely because belief is free according to Locke, Locke thinks it must be constrained by the objective evidence of propositions. The thrust of the Essay is normative.
Locke wants degrees of assent or denial to be proportional to the objective degree of probability of the objects of belief. Nash cites Locke: "no Probability can arise higher than its first Original" Locke's point is one of right, not of fact. Because Locke is aware that credibility often rises higher than that of the first Original, he urges that we must examine the grounds of our beliefs.
Is Craige's point one of right or of fact?
Essays on the Context, Nature, and Influence of Isaac Newton’s Theology
I think Nash is correct in saying that it is of fact as Nash shows, Craige uses his descriptive account of decrease of belief for a normative purpose , viz. But then, against Nash, Craige's approach is not Lockean, and the objection--not applicable to Locke--that credibility of accounts often increases as time passes does apply to Craige. Nash says that "if one wishes to attribute Craige's argument to a species of individual folly, then a significant portion of that folly must be traced to Locke" I submit that this portion is not as significant as Nash claims.
