"Conscious identity"

From the July 24, 1920 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Weary of conflicting theories and wary of fair words that when tried in the balance are found wanting, mankind is demanding demonstrable facts in response to the age-old questions as to the identity, origin, and purpose of human life. Who am I? What am I here for? These are the problems which have vexed mankind through centuries of human existence and which, until the discovery of Christian Science by Mary Baker Eddy in 1866, had never been answered in a scientific, practical way.
