Elsewhere on this site is a Catholic Fundamentalism approach to the Book of Revelations. While working on this, it’s been necessary to review other writings on the Book. Many, many scholarly Protestants wrote on Revelations. Their desire to interpret that, the most complicated writing in the world, was accompanied by a desire to undermine the credibility and believability of the Roman Catholic Church. The two desires are utterly incompatible with accuracy, and resulted in reams of obvious pro-Protestant propaganda.

Newton was one of the most virulent of the anti-Catholics. He was brilliant in his scientific works, in which he sought truth. But, when he applied his powerful mind to Revelations, he was so blinded by pre-conceived notions that he simply couldn’t do it.

But, he tried. Oh, how he tried.
