Topic: [Bones of hyenas and rhinoceroses etc have been found in a cave in Yorkshire. Animal bones have also been found in caves in Europe and there has been a similar recent find near Maidstone, Kent. Buckland suggests that the bones date from a time "anterior to the deluge of Noah". Ranking dates the bones much later, suggesting they are from captive wild animals shown in nearby Roman amphitheatres. Other remains (of elephants and mammoths) in Behring`s Straits, Ranking believes came from animals belonging to the Turks, Moguls and Chinese and carried by river to the Arctic. The Athenaeum waits for the bones to be compared with those of modern animals]

Category: Entomology   Christian Religion   
Topic: Multiplication of Insects. [Experiment upon the eggs of the lime-tree tussock moth which shows what prolific breeders insects are. The most fertile animals, however, are flies.] We are lost when we reflect that God has created in the first of these animals a principle sufficing to supply a production for several thousand generations of this nature, which will continue to succeed each other unto the end of the world

[Their useful functions: to protect the roots of other plants in winter, to grow where nothing else can without impoverishing the soil, to convert watery habitats into "firm land" while purifying the water. To study them is to attend to "the infinitely little", one of two extremes between which Pascal says mankind is placed. The other is "the infinitely great" ]

Topic: [It seems that different human races are varieties of the same species, just as single damask roses and double white roses originate from the same root. If this is the case, that all humans came from only two parents, then why are people scattered all over the earth? If there was more than one original pair, then there must have been many arks and many Noahs]

Heading: Shades of the Dead. No. III.--Columbus
Category: Geography   Exploration   The Americas   Classical Mythology   Folklore   Christian Religion   
Topic: [Article, in a series on influential individuals in history. Columbus is perceived as the person most responsible for banishing the superstitions of the ancient world. However, he did not "resemble the idols of the nineteenth century". His enterprise was done more in the spirit of the reformation; technical or mechanical mastery of the material world was a means of realizing a vision, not an end in itself. Nor did Columbus relinquish religious faith]

Category: Philosophy   Philosophy Of Science   Philosophy Of Education   Christian Religion   
Topic: [Article, from a series on influential thinkers, containing a discussion on the nature of social reform.
