Evolution necessarily involves the belief that human life is infinitely progressive, whereas our Master taught that the "world, the flesh, and the devil," representing the material creation, "shall pass away," and must be overcome by obedience to his teaching and example. The spiritual life is not evolved from dust, but revealed through victory over the flesh, its false appetites and erring senses.

The Christian Scientist proves this in his daily life, perhaps more definitely than is possible by any other system of religion or science. He knows that as a man "thinketh in his heart, so is he," and that the kingdom of heaven is not a future state or locality, but is within him and is an individual realization of God's ever-presence. We do not need to wait for the perfect man to evolve from an atom of dust or a monkey, but we can demonstrate that now he is the image and likeness of God.
