CAUSE AND EFFECT

From the February 1951 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Great fortunes have been spent in the setting up of laboratories, clinics, and foundations bent on searching out the causes of humanity's countless ills; and elaborate remedial measures have been developed for coping with the ills themselves. Nevertheless, a system which commences with material effects, such as atoms, germs, diseases, poverty, unemployment, war, and from these effects attempts to work back to causes, will ever prove futile.
