Sir William Thompson, Lord Kelvin (1827-1907), the famous scientist who developed degrees Kelvin to record temperatures on an absolute scale, held the chair of Natural Philosophy at the University of Glasgow for 54 years.  He formulated the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics, introduced the Concept of Energy, and made enormous advancements in the areas of mathematics and physics.  Among his great contributions were the invention of a ship’s compass which was largely freed from the magnetic influence of the iron in the ship, as well as helping to design and lay the first trans-atlantic telegraph cable.

In 1903, Lord Kelvin mad the statement:

“With regard to the origin of life, science… positively affirms creative power.”
