Francis Bacon: A Religious Philosopher
Francis Bacon was critical in the development of the scientific method, and thus, being a philosophical and scientific giant. Interestingly, he also expressed his religious views quite clear in his works, which are clearly reflective of Christian beliefs. By emphasizing the priority of God, Francis Bacon stated out in his book that “theology is based on God, not on the light of nature and men must obey his word, though we find a reluctation in our reason”. It is fascinating to see such a combination of science and religion on his work.
