Among the generalizations of science, evolution holds foremost place. It claims: “Man is a creature of development; that he has come up though uncounted ages from an origin that is lowly.” Why should he come so far if he is destined to go no farther? A creature which has traveled such distances, and fought such battles and won such victories deserves, one is compelled to say, to conquer death and rob the grave of its victory. Darwin said . . . “Believing as I do that man in the distant future will be a far more perfect creature than he now is, it is an intolerable thought that he and all other sentient beings are doomed to complete annihilation after such long-continued, slow progress. To whose who fully admit the immortality of the human soul, the destruction of our world will not appear so dreadful
