There is indeed evidence all round us of
adaptttion, of tituess of life of alt livinsr
things to their peculiar surronudiuts ami
circumstances. But this, to the material
ist is no evidence of special design.-. On
the other hand it furnishes the strongest
possible proof to the contrary.
The materialist sees this adaptation of all
j liviug things to their environments, to be
the result ot long, tedious ovuluhtmary pro-
cesses uuimiuauiig always in uiu "survival
of the fittest."
The atheist, without the aid of science,
can refute the theologian, by applying the
rttlnclio ml ttbsunlum. But during the past
twenty-live years science has furnished the
clue to these so-called adaptations, Th
