Science and Revelation

Excerpt from Science and Revelation: A Series of Lectures in Reply to the Theories of Tyndall, Huxley, Darwin, Spencer, Etc These lectures owe their origin to certain proceedings connected with the meeting of the British Association in Belfast in the autumn of 1874. In his opening address, the President thought fit to assail some of the most important principles of religion, whether natural or revealed. In that address, and in some others subsequently delivered, the facts of science were presented as antagonistic to the claims of every form of religion which recognises the existence of a personal God; and although the wonders of nature were disclosed, the hand of God was ignored. Whilst courtesy and precedent forbade any protest at the time, it was felt by many, and more especially by those resident in Belfast, that such teaching should not be permitted to pass unchallenged. The paramount importance of the questions at issue, the literary and scientific prestige of the men by whom these strange doctrines were propounded, the injurious influence which such deliverances were calculated to exercise on some minds, and the strong desire expressed by many honest and earnest believers in the sacred Scriptures that these adverse theories should be thoroughly analysed, suggested the necessity of an elaborate defence of the fundamental truths so wantonly impugned; and at a meeting of ministers, held shortly afterwards, the programme of the lectures now published was arranged. These lectures will speak for themselves, for the men who delivered them, and for those Divine truths which they so ably and eloquently expound. They will be found clear, logical, and conclusive.
