God and the Universe

Sir Isaac Newton, who created physical laws that became cornerstones of physics, chemistry and astronomy, is said to have built an orrery, or a clockwork solar system. When queried by a colleage as to who built it or where it came from, the great scientist is said to have replied, “No one. It just got here.” This story, related by Srila Prabhupada, indicates that, indirectly, the great scientist was telling us that God is behind every law of the universe, including the movements of heavenly bodies.
