The Less Startling Demonstrations
In this distinctly utilitarian age, it is not surprising that the question of practical value should be promptly presented to every progressive idea claiming recognition and approval
The symmetry, plausibility, and free flow of a theory count for much less than they have in times past, and they will not long float a system of thought which is not supported by satisfactory evidences of genuineness and substantial worth.
This mental attitude of the world must not be forgotten in considering the history of Christian Science, for it makes it the more apparent that the movement could not have reached its present proportions had it not been prepared to meet every fair test imposed. All efforts to explain its phenomena fail, and fail utterly, if its undeniable demonstrations are ignored. Christianity is no longer an appeal to credulity but to reason and observation; and in venturing its all upon the verification and attestation of scientific tests, Christian Science has assumed a position which would be insanely hazardous, if it were not prepared to substantiate its claims with indisputable proofs. The ability of the blind man to face his contemptuous questioners with such entire self-possession, was based upon a definite personal experience of the authority and value of the Master's teaching, and because of this his logic, "whereas I was blind, now I see," was simply unanswerable.
