THE CITIZEN SCORES W. J. BRYAN Harry Emerson Foarlirk, ProfeMor In fnion Thfoloirieal Seminary, In an article In trip New York Timea, fritiilsox Mr. Bryan for his ".incew hut appalling obscurantism." Here ar some extracts from Professor Foilirk's article: When Mr. Bryan reduce evolu tion to n hypothesis and then identi fies a hypothesis with a 'tmess. he is trinity of a sophistry so shallow and ratpnhle that one wonders nt his hardihood in risking it." "Today the evolutionary hyp'hesis, after many years of pitiless attacks and senrrhincr investipatlnn, is, as a whole, the mot adequate explanation of the facts with recard to the origin of speeies that we have yet attained, ar.d it was never so solidly pmttnded as today." "When therefore, Mr. Bryan says, "Neither Pnrwin nor his supporters have hern able to find a fact in the universe to support their hypothesis', it would he difficult to imaeine a statemert wore obviously and dem onstrably mistaken. The real situa tion is that every fart on which in vestigation has heen ahle to lay its hand helps to confirm the hypothesis of evolution. There is no known fart which stands out acainst it." "He (Mr. Bryan) says, 'Ts it not stranre that a Christian will accept Darwinism as a substitute for the Bihle when the Bihle not only does not support Pnrwinism hut directly and expressly eontrndirts it?' What other interpretation of such a state ment 's possible except this? thaf the Bible is for Mr. Bryan an author itative textbook in biolotry and, if in bioloey, why not in astronomy, fosmotrony. chemistry or any other science, art or concern of man what ever? One who is acquainted with the history of theolotrical thouirht pasps as he reads this," "Martin Lather attacked Copernicus with the same appeal which Mr. Bryan uses. He appealed to the Bible. He said. This fool wishes to reverse the en tire science of astronomy, but sacred scripture tells us that Joshua com manded the sun to stand still and not the earth.'" 'Father Inchoper felt so cor-fidcnt that he cried, 'The opinion of the earth's motion is of til heresies the mit abominable, the wost pernicious, the most scanda lous: the immovability of the earth is thrice sacred, argument atrainst the immortality of the soul, the ex istence of God, and the incarnation should be tolerated sooner than ar fcrsrumert to prove the earth moves.' " The Dignity of Man "The fundamental interest wh'Vh leads Mr. Ervan and others of his school to bate evolution is the fear that it will depreciate the dipnity .if man. Just what do they vnev.n ? Even in the Book of Genesis God made man out of the dust of earth. Purely, that is low enouirh to start and evolution starts no lower. So lonjr ns God is the Creative Power, what difference does it make whether out of the dust by sudden fiat or out of the dust by gradual process God brought man into being? Here man is and what he is he is. Were it decided that God had dropped him from the sky, he still would be the BEREA COLLEGE -T-4 t 1 3'wrsis, ?. , ' t r.Jt7 1 H' Hanoi I ' vf:-;. -rtr? L ... a. -. t "i - s.Vwtv-is. vn.'t'V. . a--il i ' man he is. If it la derided that God brought him up by slow (rradationt out of lower forms of life, he still is the man he la. "The fact Is that the process by which man ra me to he upon the planet is a very important scientific problem, but, it Is not a crucially important religious problem. Origins prove nothing in the realm of values. To all folk of spiritual insight man. no matter by what process he at first arrived, Is the rhild of God. made in His imago, destined for His char acter. If one could appeal directly to Mr. Bryan he would wi?h to say: let the scientists thrash out the prob lems of man's biological origin but in the meantime do not teach men that if God did not make us by fiat then we have nothing but a bestial heritage. That is a lie which, once believed, will have a terrific harvest. It is roprctablo business that a prominent Christian should be teach ing that." The Real Enemies of Christian Faith "Indeed, the real enemies of the Christian faith, so far as our stu dents are concerned, are not the evo lutionary biologists, but folk like Mr. Bryan who insist on setting up arti ficial adhesions between Christianity end outgrown scientific opinions, and who proclaim that we cannot have one without te other. The pity is that so many students will believe him and, finding it impossible to re tain the outgrown scientific opinions, will give up Christianity in accord ance with Mr. Bryan's insistence that they must" Man's Thought of God "But the effect of evolution upon man's thought of lod, as every seri ous student of theology knows, has been d:rectly the opposite of what Mr. Bryan supposes. It was in the eighteenth century that men thought of God as the vague, dim figure over the crest of the first hill who gave this universr.I toboggan its primeval shove and has been watching it slid ing ever since. It was in the eight eenth century that God was thought of as the absentee landlord who had built the bouse and left it as the shipwright who had built the ship and then turned it over to the mas ter mariners, his natural laws. Such ideas of God are associated with eighteenth century Deism, but the nineteenth century's most character istic thought of God was in terms of immanence God here in this world, the life of all that lives, the sus taining energy of all that exists, as our spirits aro in our bodies, per meating vitalizing, directing all. "The ideal of evolution was one of the great factors in this most profit able cb".nge." Mr. Huxley's reply to Bishop Wil berforce, when the latter asked him whether he was related by his grandfather's or his grandmother's ;de to the ape, niig'it well be ad dressed to) Mr Bryan: "I asserted, and I repeat, that a man has no rea son to be ashamed of having an ape for his grandfather. If there were an ancestor whom I shouldt feel shame in recalling, it would be n man, a man of restless and versatile, intellect who, rot content with equi vocal success in his own sphere of First Term Opens June 16, 1922 i -. a--- . c a csj m cloyd n.

And he ruled over broad fields and (Treat forests. And in his country he was a man of righteousness, for he gave liberally to the poor and his house was open always. And he abode In uprightness and flourished gToatly. J It rame to pass that the husband-, man found himself in need of certain articles, and he gathered op great store, even a wagon load of the pro duce of his flocks and herds, and of , the fruits of his fields, and he went into a city to sell and to buy, for, those who dwelt In the city had need of his goods and he had need of, theirs. And he came to the house of. a merchant and offered to sell his I I produce and buy the merchant's; I goods. Then the mrtvhnnt said, "Yea, 1 1 I will gladly sell to thee. These shoes j are Nineteen Dollars per pair, and this suit, which weigheth six pounds and is all wool, thou mayst have for Seventy-nine Dollars and ninety-j eight rents The price hath been re-1 duced from Eighty Dollars. I will I sell thee groceries at equal cheap-! ness, for this is the home of low j prices." Then spake the husbandman say-j ing, '1 do perceive that thou askest generous prices for thy goods. Now ; if it please thee, what prices rant j thou offer for my produce? Here Ij have the choicest products of my flocks and fields." And the merchant ; answered him saying, "Corn is worth fiftv rents per bushel and wheat One I Dollar. For the cowhides whVh ' thou hast, I can pay thee thirty rents each, for ore of them will nor rnake more than nine pairs of shoes; i and for the wool I might pay thee ; Men rents per pound, for it is of good ! duality and five or six pounds of it will make a good suit of clothes." I Then said the husbandman, "Go ! thou to the lake that hurneth. I will j seek me another merchant who is n t jr. thief." And he departed ml visited a!I those who bought and s '! ' j in that town, but there was an agree ment among them and no competi tion, and they were all like unto the i first. j Then the husbandman shook the dust from his feet against that town, land departed, saying. "Yea, th" Devil' is fortunate yet a little while, for1 ! these nien harts are still amor" the ! living." j .nd the husbaid i,n sough' his own country find returned unto his: house, and took down from the wall an old he-musket of the vintage Harper's Ferry, 'C4. And beho'd, ; was good, and the triggers and ham mers and works thereof gave forth a pleasant sound whe ;.r did w .rk them. And ho charged the musket v !th a handful of powder and three pounds of dynamite, and loaded the barrel full of snw teeth, horse-Fhoe activity, plunges into scientific ques- ; tions with which he has no real ac qiiaintam e. only to obscure them by an aimless rhetoric.

And h blessed it and returned to that town. And he made a great slaughter of the merchants and slew abort four thousand of them, and spoiled their goods. And the name of that town is forgotten. Now when the husbandman wa returned from the slaughter, his neighbors set him In a high placa and elected him school trustee, and they abode In good fellowship all the days of their lives and went no more to the local merchants, but kept for themselves and their children the fat of the land. And when one lacked shoes or clothing, he sent unto the mail order houses, and it was well with his purse. This parable sheweth that preed over-reacheth itself.
