From Pantheist Vision, we read:
This eminent British historian and major interpreter of Western Civilization in the 20th century was born in 1889. Toynbee's sweeping perspective on human history led him to affirm a Pantheist world view: "If I am right in my diagnosis of mankind's present-day distress, the remedy lies in reverting from the Weltanschauung of monotheism to the Weltanschauung of pantheism, which is older and was once universal."

From Pantheist Vision we read:
Astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson observes that Margaret Burbridge, born on this day in 1919, gave us "the greatest gift of astrophysics to civilization in the 20th century," proving that we are largely made of stardust. In 1957, she was the lead author of a landmark scientific paper on the origin of chemical elements, showing that most elements are forged by thermonuclear reactions within stars, in a process now called stellar nucleosynthesis. This includes elements such as carbon that make up plants and animals, oxygen in the atmosphere, and gold and silver mined from the ground. She was considered one of the foremost astronomers in the world, and long regarded as a trailblazer for women in the field, well known for her work opposing discrimination against women in astronomy.
