additional references for today's text

I forgot to add this part, but its interesting that both Sir Isaac Newton and John Milton (who wrote "Paradise Lost") both were avid Bible students, and they both came to the same conclusion about paradise being restored on earth from a thorough investigation of the scriptures, but neither of them could publish their views until after their death, because the Church held such strong opposing views on the subject that it would have been considered heresy.

Here's a couple short articles on the site that mention it...

Newton
Milton
