Galileo believes that God is the creature of the universe and the whole thing that in it, these creations are practically expressed in the bible and it is the work of human being to translate the work of God and to and to elaborate the true which means of the universe (Galilei, n.d). The above reason indicates that God has a physical physique and emotion. He created the physical things that exist, heavenly bodies and the forces that keep them together. I believe that God is the father of the universe and every creature in it. The bible was meant to give theoretical information about the universe; it was not pragmatic about nature depending on the time and culture in which it was written (Galilei, n.d). I believe that human beings should use sense, experience, and reasoning to study the universe since these aspects of learning facilitate the understanding of the physical world, the bible does not do so.
Thomas Paine believed in deism form of religion that was mainly based on the inconsistencies in the bible. The kind of religion is called the philanthropy. Thomas Paine believed in God but did not believe in the doctrines of the Jewish church that that according to him lacked consistencies in most of the Christian teachings. I believe that the theophilantropy religions doctrines are not rational; they tend to distinguish themselves from the basic Christian dogmas that are stipulated in the Bible. The bible is the main book of reference to Christianity, it was written during the early church to guide Christian believers and philosophers in translating the work of work. Scientists also believed in Christian doctrines and they borrowed a lot of ideas that enabled them to explore the existence of the universe, therefore, it remains to be a rational book (Galilei, n.d).
