Galileo died in 1642, the year Newton was born.  Sir Isaac's birthday depends on which calendar is used.  Jesus may have actually been a stone mason and wasn't born on Dec. 25th.  What matters, is that both men questioned the religious tenets of their time.  Jesus was unquestionably a Marxist.  He preached the brotherhood of man and threw the money changers out of the temple.
