Isaac Newton had a huge impact on the Enlightenment. Not only did he create calculus, he also described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion. His theory on universal gravitation also helped to prove heliocentrism, the model of Earth and other planets orbiting the sun.

All of these things that he has done had impacts on the world. They disproved many religious and traditonal beliefs. Newton ideas about the universe became one of the seeds for Enlightenment ideology.

Old ideas to New ones

Before Sir Issac Newton discovered all of the things he discovered and invented all of the things he invented the church had many of their own beliefs that people believed. The church did not like that Newton did what he did because it took power and belief away from them.

"My powers are ordinary. Only my application brings me success"(Sir Issac Newton). This means that he is a normal person but he is trying harder than most people which makes him more successful.
