False Evidence versus True Evidence

"The evidence of the physical senses often reverses the real Science of being, and so creates a reign of discord,—assigning seeming power to sin, sickness, and death; but the great facts of Life, rightly understood, defeat this triad of errors, contradict their false witnesses, and reveal the kingdom of heaven,—the actual reign of harmony on earth." Thus Mary Baker Eddy in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 122), reveals to us the untrue nature of the evidence of the five physical senses. These five physical or material senses—hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting, and touching—are cognizant only of matter. They testify regarding themselves. They would constantly make us believe, and accept as true, their evidence of a material universe and material man. But Christian Science reveals the great facts that God, Spirit, is All, and that there is no matter; therefore matter, which material sense appears to cognize, and upon which its testimony is based, is unreal, nonexistent.

The great spiritual facts of being cannot be reversed. The false testimony of physical sense claims to have done so, but it is merely a seeming reversal which must be denied in order to arrive at the true facts. How is this done? By accepting and affirming the true evidence of spiritual sense and rejecting and denying the false evidence of unreal, material sense.
