Great article I came across and I'm here to share the information. Well worth the read.




On 22 February 2003, the Telegraph (London, England) published a front-page story announcing Isaac Newton’s prediction that the world would end in 2060. The story was based on interviews with myself and Malcolm Neaum, the producer of the BBC 2 documentary Newton: the dark heretic (first shown on 1 March 2003). I was asked to make myself available to the media because some of my academic research on Newton’s prophecy and heretical theology was used in the documentary and since I was not only interviewed for the documentary both in Jerusalem and Cambridge, but am also shown with the manuscript containing the 2060 date in Jerusalem. Although the 2060 date was not news to the small community of scholars who study Newton’s theology, this was the first time the wider public became aware of Newton’s prophetic views.





2060 A.D. would be more like a new beginning. It would be the end of an old age, and the beginning of a new era

Hm, not bad, Thanks for the info!

A Near Earth Object is supposed to breeze real close at 2036, but maybe the true end of the world won't come from a comet, but from an Elitist greed.

well, Newton is considered one of the most inteligent/smart people of all times, so, we never know ....maybe he`s right

Pretty sure he's wrong.

This ol' thing will keep on spinning.. with or without hairless apes making noise.

Yeah but did he successfully predict the invention of the FIG NEWTON. Hmm! Think about that! Who do you think invented the FIG NEWTON? Well Duh! Who"s buried in Grants tomb? Nabisco was the nane of his favorite Irish Wolfhound.

His prediction still has spinning hairless apes: Statement on the Date 2060

Newton did believe that there would be a positive outcome to the war and destruction that would take place at the end of time. Newton took seriously the prophetic vision of world peace found in Isaiah 2 and Micah 4—a vision that sees Jerusalem as the beginning of peace.

I want to leave a link to a series of mathematical equations that Newton supposedly used to help him create his calculus . They come from the Great Pyramid and contain the Sacred Cubit .Its a interesting bunch of equations and when used with other types of measurements ( 360 ,365.25 , the inch the foot the meter and mile ) Time and distance can be figured out . Well at least the author of the vids make the claim but I cant remember any future prophecy .....any how there are many parts in the collectio that you can advance to the next at the bottom if interested ... www.the-tribulation-network.com...

He did predict the end would be that year... however it may not be as we think regarding "the end".


Despite the dramatic nature of a prediction of the end of the world, Newton may not have been referring to the 2060 date as a destructive act resulting in the annihilation of the earth and its inhabitants, but rather one in which he believed the world was to be replaced with a new one based upon a transition to an era of divinely inspired peace. In Christian theology, this concept is often referred to as The Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the establishment of Paradise by The Kingdom of God on Earth.[44] In Judaism it is often referred to as the Messianic era or the "Yamei Moshiach" (Days of the Messiah).

To him the second coming may be an awakening to a --more-- awareness of consciousness. A new train of thought throughout the collective minds of man.

It is important to remember that the father of Calculus, the discoverer of the laws of gravity & the laws of motion and the inventor of the reflecting microscope, not to mention his work in the field of optics, spent as much time on "occult studies" as he did on "hard science".

Is it a stretch of the imagination to assume that Newton was able to glimpse a vision of the future and the possible date of the Singularity? Kurzweil says that the Singularity will occur in 2045. 15 years isn't that much of a difference.

He may well have made this prediction, but it was based on the delusional belief that the Bible is God's instruction manual for mankind...and that his particular interpretation of it was the correct one.

Certainly not from his work as a scientist.

If Newton was alive today and posting on ATS, he would be called a religious nut doom porner... go figure.

well really it just goes to show even the most brilliant of minds can have a fart now and again
but i suppose that comes with the territory making sense of the senseless has never been a forgiving task

Due to Fukushima. And by 2060 it should be well done and finished.

When the faith of a man lasts his whole life, it can hardly be called a brain fart. In fact, many men like Newton were religious and they expected science to simply explain in better detail what they sensed to be the work of God. That is; all.

His time was not ours. It was probably more suspect to have a faithless scientific than a faithful one.

well sensed is certainly a good term to use since it requires external input and pretty much all external input received would have been faith based
and it certainly was the case that faith based assertions were far far far more readily accepted than those based on observable evidence .......as is still the case.... it can be argued this go along to get along mentality is responsible for the current populations ability (or lack there of) to understand arguments based on detailed observation
but surely playing ball to get your message across is much more conductive to development than immediate social dismissal and the loss of observed facts that would occur upon challenging the current paradigm (that would then stall the progress of humanity and result in inevitable changes that would make society itself more conductive to its own development)
.... and to be honest i really dont know whats best..... extremely slow but comfortable development step by step .....or risk killing the living flesh with the dead in one clean sweep by refusing any and all concession as you would with cancer

i guess it all depends on what the circumstances dictate if we have thousands of years to adapt the slow route is obviously the way to go (we still have flat earthers) but if the current paradigm is doomed to immediate (less than a couple hundred years) failure its probably worth an all or nothing approach



but what undoubtedly needs to occur for humanity to continue in prosperity is for our social development to match or technological development
whether that means we evolve socially or devolve technologically depends on what people decide to place importance on .....are you willing to bank on a literal heaven and immortality or are you willing to leave your mark in working to make a heaven on earth
and really it can be both if you want it to be (take from that what you want)

Great article I came across and I'm here to share the information. Well worth the read.


O.k. let's put this into perspective.

Sir Issac Newton is best known to people for his work and discoveries in Math / Optics / Gravitation / Politics... What many people don't know or is generally overlooked, he was also a person whom was deeply religious and a boarder line oculist.

He was an obsessive alchemist and deep believer in a bible code.....

I'm not taking anything away from his clearly free thinking brilliant mind... Luckily for Sir Issac Newton, History has favored him and his incredible scientific discoveries were not overshadowed by these rather surprising pursuits.

Peace,

Korg.

but only because the procession of time allowed the wheat to be separated from the chaff or we would be holding his blunders in as high regard as his successes
look how many brilliant minds before newton espoused the theory of aether
