Second Sight and Scientific Vision

“Newton goes on to describe how he literally interprets the six days of creation and explains how his interpretation is perfectly congruent with the literal words of Moses if one properly understands the perspective which Moses adopts in drafting his prophetic vision. Newton view is that Moses depicts exactly what the common man i.e. a “vulgar” witness, would have observed of the formation of the planets of the solar system from a limited human perspective in space and time as if he had “lived” & seen ye whole series of wt Moses describes.” The key point in this letter is Newtons view that, while Moses account is literally true, it is a description limited to what an ordinary observer would have seen had one been present.”
