Better basis than embryology
Naturalists describe the origin of mortal and material
existence in the various forms of embryology, and accompany
their descriptions with important observations,
which should awaken thought to a higher and
purer contemplation of man's origin. This
clearer consciousness must precede an understanding
of the harmony of being. Mortal thought must
obtain a better basis, get nearer the truth of being, or
health will never be universal, and harmony will never
become the standard of man.
One of our ablest naturalists has said: "We have no
right to assume that individuals have grown or been
formed under circumstances which made material conditions
essential to their maintenance and reproduction,
or important to their origin and first introduction."
Why, then, is the naturalist's basis so materialistic,
and why are his deductions generally material?
