From the February 1913 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In much of the teeming literature of the day, and in the swift-flowing current of popular thinking, the doctrine of heredity is treated solely from a materialistic and pessimistic standpoint, and is associated with the demon rather than with the angel. Popular unbelief in spiritual entities, and popular ignorance of eternal Truth, hold heredity to be a mightier factor in our lives than infinite Love, and so, inferentially at least, as a mightier power per se.
