Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea XXXII (The science of Gottfried Leibniz, Part I)
This focus of the school of physics emerged after Albert Einstein destroyed Isaac Newton’s Universe in 1905. But these young physicists did not know that Gottfried Leibniz had challenged Newton’s Universe and John Locke’s atoms long ago. Unfortunately, Locke died before a debate began. And since Newton feared Leibniz, he had his disciple, Samuel Clarke, respond to Leibniz. Clarke supported the Dues ex machina theory of Newton (click). This theory says that the universe has an end and requires God to restart it.
Germany’s Leibniz interacted with many scholars in Europe, did work for the Pope, even though he was a Lutheran, and published only one book, ‘Theodicy.’ So, his thoughts are found mostly in letters. Thanks to G.H.R Parkinson, the book ‘Leibniz: Philosophical Writings’ appeared in English in 1934 with revisions, in 1973, and again in 1975 and 1979. But the latest versions were too late to take hold in the school of physical science because the atheism of Madelyn Murray O’ Hair was ruled favorably by the U.S. Supreme court in 1967. This ruling caused many young physicists to study Far East thoughts. I brought Leibniz writings and Parkinson’s book into view again in 2006 with my book, ‘The First Scientific Proof of God’ and with this website. Without reading my book, my blogs, or Parkinson’s book, atheists show their determination to kill the idea of God in the USA.
In my book, I use Leibniz’s ‘Monadology’ and ‘On the Organization of Things.’ Both papers are found in Parkinson’s book. Since Parkinson’s book is out of print, I will summarize other papers in his book so that people, who are remaking America, will know how to make the new America a reality under God.
