From the December 1906 issue of The Christian Science Journal

WE discourse with great glibness upon the achievements of physical science in modern times, and by taking pretty much everything for granted we manage to make ourselves comfortable and avoid many troublesome questions which might otherwise obtrude themselves on our attention in a manner that is neither very soothing to our vanity nor, indeed, very reassuring to our intelligence. To be sure, these questions, or many of them, are as old as reflective thought itself.
