Changing the Evidence

THE difference between the man with religion and the man without religion, might be said to be that the one walks by faith and the other by sight—that is, material sight. The one, looking beyond the evidence of the material senses, renders himself independent, in a degree, of the ups and downs, the shifts and changes, that characterize mortal existence. The other, relying on the testimony of the senses, lends himself to their deceptions.

Such simple illusions as the rising of the sun, the meeting of parallel tracks in the distance, the disappearance of ships over the horizon, illustrate the deceptive nature of material sense. Even secular education attempts to impart a better sense of the physical universe through the knowledge obtained from the physical or so-called natural sciences.
