Excerpt from Blending Lights: Or, the Relations of Natural Science, Arch¿ology, and History, to the Bible
Different lines of investigation may be profitably followed but we may suggest the following as exhaustive, or nearly exhaustive, of the most prominent questions which modern research has raised.
As the Bible is confessedly related to the natural sciences, archaeology, history, and modern civilisation, let it be placed successively in the midst of their facts, and let us see to what extent its statements can bear their light.
There are many questions which none of us can honestly avoid and while some may remain unsettled, the unbiassed review of those solutions which have been already offered, and which have been generally accepted, will be found to confirm Scripture instead of confuting it.
I. As to Science - Have astronomy and geology given evi dence for or against: the eternity of the visible universe? Has biology determined the origin of life? Whence is it? Have comparative anatomy and physiology, psychology and ethics, established more than one origin for the human race? Are the incidental allusions in Scripture contradicted or confirmed by the more recent discoveries in Natural Science?
