Excerpt from The Bible and Science Many people consider the doctrine of evolution, or, as it is t unfrequently termed, Darwinism, as necessarily atheistic, and regard it with horror mir led with fear. They look upon it with horror, because they think that its spread will be injurious to religion and morality; and they fear it, because they see that every year its adoption is becoming more general, and that, twithstanding their dislike to it, they are unable to stop its progress. In addition to this, some have a lurking dread that the doctrine may be true, and that they may by and by be forced, in spite of themselves, to ackwledge its truth, and to give up the cherished religious beliefs which have been their joy and strength.
