In a recent issue, under the heading "Religion in India," a lecturer is reported to have stated that "many of the doctrines of Buddhism have been brought into Christian Science." This is not correct. Mrs. Eddy writes in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 119): "Think not that Christian Science tends towards Buddhism or any other 'ism.' Per contra, Christian Science destroys such tendency."

Christian Science is the reinstatement of primitive Christianity and is now widely accepted. Dr. Laurence McK. Gould, who was second in command to Rear-Admiral Byrd in his first Antarctic expedition, has said: "Christian Science is an incontrovertible fact and no one can think to interpret or even understand the trends of modern religious thought without giving serious attention to it. . . . The essential philosophy of this faith has found its way into the thought and attitude of many Protestant Churches and there is no measuring its boundaries. This widespread and lasting fruitage is the greatest evidence of the essential soundness of Christian Science teachings."
