Questions (and answers) about origin

For the Lesson titled "Is the Universe, Including Man, Evolved by Atomic Force?" from June 17 - 23, 2013

One can only imagine the time and resources spent on a mission as thrilling as the Mars Curiosity Rover Landing on August 6, 2012—a further step in man’s desire to know the origins of the universe and his place in it.

Mary Baker Eddy selected the topic “Is the Universe, Including Man, Evolved by Atomic Force?” at a time when space exploration was almost inconceivable. Yet questions about the origin of the universe, as well as man, were very much in public thought. 

This week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson explores the evolution of man and the universe from the basis of Spirit, not matter. The Responsive Reading is from a chapter in Job often interpreted as a kind of deific tongue-lashing to Job for challenging God’s authority. Rather than as a form of retribution, however, one might view the many questions as God’s way of drawing out Job’s thinking.
