Andre Marie Ampere (1775-1863) was a French electrician and scientific writer. Ampere discovered the relationship between magnetism and electricity. He defined a unit to measure the strength of an electric current. (Amperes equals volts divided by ohms.) Before he died, Ampere wrote on a piece of paper:

“Believe in God, in His providence, in a future life, in the recompense of the good; in the punishment of the wicked; in the sublimity and truth of the doctrines of Christ, in a revelation of this doctrine by a special divine inspiration for the salvation of the human race.”
