As tho Bible reeoid embrace two
thousand years', I am not hurprised- to
find tho books touch many a phenome
non of nature to which tho linger of
science has since been applied ; but in
view of the time at which theso books
were penned and of the a;e. in which
they first appeared. I am lull of a
p'le.-isiiig astonishment at what I find
to bo a fact: Instead of any conflict
arising between the developments of
modern meneo ami the statement! ol
the Bible, there U the most exact
harmony that could bo wished.
The writers of thc?e books un
known nud obscure, lest tho honor due
the (Jreator should be heaped upon the
creatures" whenever detailing iho ac
tion of phenomenal iorcc.4 in tin outer
world, they invariably without fail
ing in a singlo easo employ language
which is scientifically just. ,
Shall we go back to tho first chap
ter of Genesis, whera it is stated that
light preceded the tun? Shubert,
Wagner and Kurtz, (Ionium fecioutists,
have tdiown by profound astronomical
discoveries that light does not n '.cessa
rily depend upon the bun ; and even
Humboldt, in his " Cosmos " says
" Tho northern light derives most of
ils importance from the fact that the
....v. I. Imnniiin tl I 1 it tit t .1 rillU .iliil
IUIIM Vtlt-UIHVa IKI-,l,l,ll'l.T, UI1U
shows itself in itself capable of devel
oping light." Here, then, is the first
lumarkable statement of -Moses con
tinued by scientific research; and can
anybody who is not developed up from
a tadpole, deny that modern science
has here justified Moses?
The scicutists have found that Moses
was right alter all.
The Hebrew word for light in the
third vcrecof the first chapter in (Jen
esis is oicr. " And God said, Let there
bo our." But of the fourth day's
work, I read in tho Hebrew, Vmum
Mohlontth-fhctiei Iwmmwruth" which
means, " And (rod constituted two
great light-carriers.'' Mark you, tho
word UsCiLis. uoti linra, " created," but
aatu, ,vcb"-.li(ittcd'," ii'oiour, light,"
but maurath, " light-carriers."
' Moses has not said, as we see by go
ing back to the Hehiew, that fJl cre
ated tho buu and moon on the fourth
day. He may have created tho body
of tho sun millions of years before.
It lias not been slated that he did cre
ate the sun and moon on the fourth
day. Far from it. Thoy Were consti
tuted the light-bearers of our globe on
that day. ihis.wai-probably done by
making our earth incapable ol heco,'..
ing alternatively niH'-himinoU". While
the world wa toll' productive of light,
illumination would lir.-t stream ou all
ponions suth of what wo call tho
cqiiator;jthcu darkness would succeed
in dial place, and the same intermit
ting phenomenon would transpire
northward ol the same imaginary hue.
The fourth day's work isdevoted to id
ntive uses. "Hod constituted two grand
linht-earricrs , the lircakr to rule tho
day, aud the Jesser also tho stars to
rule the night."
But here again our Moses is right.
Tho heavenly bodies, as every nstrou
omcr will tell you, bear niatks ol hav
ing first been opaque, and subsequently
having been made luminous. How
does the sun give light? The iuo.it
recent discoveries aie, that the sun Un

the Oooper'a Institute. Who, then, un
less it be some developed baboon, can
fail to see that tho languago of. Moses
is precisely pcientille? Modern sci
cnoo, in this placo again, has como to
the rescue, It confirms just what
Moses wroto upon tho subject, as no
body can deuy. Is it not a matter for
reflection that tho body of the sun' " is
just what the languago'of .Moses would
lead us to conclude ' '

In Job xxvi. 7: "lie strotcheth
out tho north Over tho empty placc,Ttnd
hnrigetli the earth upon nothing." Sfr
John Ilorschcl finds tho firmament at
tho north polo to bo comparatively des
titute of stars j but how did dob
know that?" Job probably didn't
know it ; but tho inspiring God did.
But Job continues, " And hangcth
tho earth upon nothing." dob is
right. Science says so. Now, as you
know, nil men of information who talk
about thu law of gravitation, have tho
earth gravitating sunward, yet never
falling into it ; hence, literally, ou thu
voico of modem astronomy, (Sod has
hung tho world upon nothing. (Sod
knew it, if Job didn't: and Job ex
pressed the fact by inspiration from the
God who did know. Such an idea
l'lato, Socrates nud Aristotle would
havo scoffed. How comes it that this.
Biblo contains the positive statement
of a soicutilio fact that uono of the
wiso philosophers among tho ancients
know, but which is now continued by
all modern science?
And what moro need wo say ? 1
can givo many other astronomical evi
dences if you. want them, of Iho cor
rectncKS of these records. Ought wo
not to feel very thankful indeed, that
astronomy is permitted to wiiiir us
through, tho universe, weigh and count
worlds, sing of tho stars in their courses,
aud bear its testimony for tho Bible?
Does geology confirm Genesis, or
conflict therewith? This question is
the more important, in view of iho de
gree of merit that infidels havo given
the subject. Heretofore an cutiicly
different lino of attack was pursued to
tho one now taken. Then the infidel
argument had it peculiar forco that it
docs not now possess, and which it
nevev will havo again. Kl Bib. c. i,
p '11 ; " It was onco taught by intelli
gent sceptics," that men and animals
had descended, in an " infinite series,"
from similar progenitors, for ever.
Geulogy has lefutcd this heretofore
nearly unanswerable theory. Man and
the animals begun to be. And
as nouo of the powers concerned
in their perpetuation aro competent to
their creation, somo other power must
necessarily have created them." But
now the wi mo das;: of skeptics want to
disprove Genesis by geology. They
try to level tho forco of that science
against the account :i detailed by
Mpscs. t ray, " the account n. do
tailed by Moses," bccatiio tho Mosaic
authorship of Genesis is n fact in his
tory, on tho threefold basis ol
2. External, nud
!t. Collateral evidence.
As no proofs to the contray have
been adduced, tho candid man cannot
hesitate to admit the Mosaic authorship
of Genesis. Ho unquesliouably had
every essential qualification for tho
work, aud wo know of nobody clso who
did havo all the necessary qualifica
tions ; and hence, the claim of Mosaic
authorship is reasonable beyond im
peachment. Besides, tho wholo Mosaic
economy is ba jed upon facts recorded
only m (Scncsis, making that book es
sential to an understanding of tho laws
of Moses. This proves that the author
of (Scncsis in tended it to bo intro
duced to tho law, which would bo un
intelligible iu many places without it;
and thtrforc, tho great law-giver,' Moses
hinisclf,is the only ono who could have
written the book of Genesis. Tho
Mosaic author.-hip of Genesis may bo
argued ; I
1st. rrom all antecedent probability.
2ndly. From tho connection of
Genesis with the other books of Moses.
Urdly. From tho subsequent Biblical

antiquity of the book.

of ancient profane authors.

artiolo of faith, that Moses wroto tho

Othly. From tho peculiarities of
thostyle and expression, and Mosaical
singuWitiei found everywhcie iu tho
Willi nino such proof of its Mosaic
authorship, a person must he shame

length of time, prior to man's appear

over, instead of making a discrepancy
between geology anil Genesis, will only
tend to show that Mo.-cs has given us a

The position may io consistently

position, therefore, is this :
1st. i hat the geological iormatiotis
occurred during tho period of this long

epoch, this globo underwent sundry
revolutions, being peopled variously

been invented; and skeptics would havo
been able to jeer nt tho idea of dew bo
ing distilled, if the microscopo hid not
been made. As it is, however, wo rco
that Mo.'cs has staled this scientific fact
in tho most scientific of terms, But
how did he know, and what guiding
power tnught him to use words of genu
ine science. He stated what is the ac
tual aud scientific truth of tho matter,

of animal lilb 'peopling tho earth at
these different and remote geological
epochs, ages prior to tho days of Adam,
constitute the fossil remains that tho
science of geology unearths.
4th. That the first chapter of Genc-ds
knew what no other persons of thai ago
did, if wo deny him the help of Divine
Kcclcsiasfcs i, v: "The huu also
ariscth, and tho sun gocth down, and
hasteth to his placo where ho arose."
Then tho Oth vor?c. In tho Hebrew
tho word means "ho," having refcietice
to tho sun. Tu the ffeptuagint, also,
moro especially from the third verse wo havo proof that the wotd "wind" is
downward was intended by Moses, to ;i discrepancy of translation. The Sop

fth. That the six creative days of
Genesis may have been literal days of
twenty-lour hours each, embracing reu
ovative creations that had no immediate
connection with the fossil remains of
iho vaguo- cataclysmal epoch of

" The wind whiricth about continually,

Hence, wo begin to see a light. Thu

So that, in this very passugo whero the

beautiful description of the earth's ro

What docs David mean? Well, under
