The Magnificent Universe

Nature is being rediscovered. With more and more people packing into metropolitan areas, the delights of fresh air, wildlife, landscapes, and seascapes are increasingly sought. There is a sharp concern for the conservation of land and the protection of wildlife.

What position does Christian Science take in relation to these trends? It teaches that the universe is actually spiritual and inviolate. This scientific fact relates to our physical surroundings and can help avert their possible destruction by human activities. By helping us to see the universe as it really is—spiritual and splendid—the Science of creation enhances our enjoyment of nature and can help preserve its beauties. The flight of a sea bird, the shapes and colors of rocks and minerals, the symmetry of crystals, the line of hills silhouetted at dusk, the carpet of pine needles in a forest, the immensity of the night sky peppered with planets and stars— these hint, though meagerly, of the vastness, infiniteness, and richness of God's spiritual universe, the cosmos of Mind. "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead," Rom. 1:20; Paul notes.
