         Today the calendar of the Lutheran Book of Worship lists the
    commemorations of scientists Nicolaus Copernicus (+1543) and Leonhard
    Euler (+1783). Everybody has heard of Copernicus & all mathematicians &
    physicists know of Euler. (It would be interesting to have a list of
    all the "Euler equations" - I can think of 4 off the top of my head.
         Remembering scientists who have been Christians in, e.g., the
    Prayers of the Church on Sunday is one low key way of helping to
    overcome the idea that science & Christianity are at war. Many other
    names could be mentioned - Maxwell, Pascal, Leavitt, Compton, Mendel,
    Teilhard, &c.
