Summary of Ideas
In 1687 Newton published his ideas in a work called "The Mathematical Princibles of Natural philosophy" in the book he explains how that everything in the universe had the same matter of motion. He believed that the universe is like a giant clock. Everything is perfectly aligned together. According to his law, every object in the universe attracts another object. The degree of attraction depends on the mass of the objects and the distance between them. He believed that God was the creator of this orderly universe, the clock maker who set everything in motion.
Challenged Traditional Beliefs in Society
Isaac Newton was Christian. Lots of people got mad at him because his giant clock theory was all connected to God. They were mad because they didn't believe in him and they believed they were getting proved wrong. They did not want to admit that God made the universe. Other than that Newton did nothing to challenge any religion or traditional beliefs.
