From Darwinism to Christian Science

Coming home from college a few years ago, I boastingly proclaimed to my friends that I had learned the true explanation of life. There I had taken a course of lectures on evolution and Darwinism, delivered by a certain famous materialist of this country, and had, so I thought, been "converted" by the truth of these teachings. The survival of the fittest, the extinction of the individual, and other preachings of this hopeless "faith" had been accepted as the only true doctrine. But what a doctrine of despair!

When I examined myself, I found I was most unhappy. I was not satisfied. Many tormenting doubts began to present themselves. Perhaps Darwinism was not the whole truth. Then what was true? From this despairing consciousness there went forth an unformulated prayer to the unknown God to reveal His truth, be it cruel or kind.
