The Lectures

At the High School Auditorium, Tuesday evening, October 10, Prof. Hermann S. Hering delivered a lecture on Christian Science. He was introduced by Hon. James H. Van Dusen, who said in part, —

Amidst the progress, the extension of the horizon of human knowledge, the tendency has been to establish as a fact the control of an all-wise creator rather than to disprove such fact. Materialism, so-called, as advocated by Professor Haeckel of Jena and by him borrowed from Buchner and de la Mettrie, has but few adherents or advocates, even among those quite indisposed to accept the gospel of Christ. No one to-day would think of quoting with seriousness the remark of Lalande, that he had "swept the entire heavens with his telescope and found no God there." This age has outgrown, to some extent at least, the theory of an anthropomorphic God, but it has not outgrown the idea of an ever-present, omnipotent, and omniscient creator. This creator, even to those who have given but superficial thought to the subject, is spiritual and not material.
