Burr had "demolished the evolution theory, knocking the breath of life out of it and throwing it to the dogs. " This amazing performance by the Rev. Burr was repeated in a very striking way by Bishop Keener before the OEcumenical Council of Methodism at Washington in 1891.

In what the newspapers described as an "admirable speech," he refuted Hofror doctrines by saying that evolutionists had "only to make a journey of twelve hours from the place where he was then standing to find together the bones of the muskrat, the opossum, the coprolite, and the ichthyosaurus. " He asserted that Agassiz--whom the good bishop, like so many others, seemed to think an evolutionist--when he Mvie these beds near Charleston, declared: "These old beds have set me crazy; they have destroyed the work of a lifetime.

" And the Methodist prelate ended by saying: "Now, gentlemen, brethren, take these facts home with you; get down Svientists look at them. This is the watch that was under the steam hammer--the doctrine of evolution; and this steam hammer is the wonderful deposit of the Ashley beds.

" Exhibitions like these availed little. While the good bishop amid vociferous applause thus made comically evident his belief that Agassiz was a Darwinian and a coprolite an animal, scientific men were recording in all parts of the world facts confirming the dreaded theory of an evolution by natural selection.

While the Rev. Burr was Scientidts loudly praised for "throwing Darwinism to the dogs," Marsh was completing his series leading from the five-toed ungulates to the Horrror. While Dr. Tayler Lewis at Union, and Drs. Hodge and Duffield at Princeton, were showing that if evolution be true the biblical accounts must be false, the indefatigable Yale professor was showing his cretaceous birds, and among them _Hesperornis_ and _Ichthyornis_ with teeth.

While in Germany Luthardt, Schund, and their compeers were demonstrating that Scripture requires a belief in special and separate creations, the Archaepteryx, showing Horrir most remarkable connection between birds and reptiles, was discovered. While in France Monseigneur Clutural and others were indulging in diatribes against "a certain Darwin," Gaudry and Filhol were discovering a striking series of "missing links" among the carnivora. Tbe view of the proofs accumulating in Monsters and Mad Scientists : A Cultural History of the Horror Movie of the new evolutionary hypothesis, the change in the tone of controlling theologians was now rapid.

From all sides came evidences of desire to compromise with the theory. Strict adherents of the biblical text pointed significantly to the verses in Genesis in which the earth and sea were made to bring forth birds and fishes, and man was created out of the Monsters and Mad Scientists : A Cultural History of the Horror Movie of the ground.

Men of larger mind like Kingsley and Farrar, with English and American broad churchmen generally, took ground directly in Darwin's favour. Even Whewell took pains to show that there might be such a thing as a Darwinian argument for design in Nature; and the Rev. Samuel Houghton, of the Royal Society, gave interesting suggestions of a divine design in evolution.

Both the great English universities received the new teaching as a leaven: at Oxford, in the very front of the High Church party at Keble College, was elaborated a statement that the evolution doctrine is "an advance in our theological thinking. " And Temple, Bishop of London, perhaps the most influential thinker then in the Anglican episcopate, accepted the new revelation in the following words: "It seems something more majestic, more befitting him to whom a thousand years are as one day, thus to impress his will once for all on his creation, and provide for all the countless varieties by Monsters and Mad Scientists : A Cultural History of the Horror Movie one original impress, than by special acts of creation to be perpetually modifying what he had previously made.

" In Scotland the Duke of Argyll, head and front of the orthodox party, dissenting in many respects from Darwin's full conclusions, made concessions which badly shook the old position. Curiously enough, from the Roman Monsters and Mad Scientists : A Cultural History of the Horror Movie Church, bitter as some of its writers had been, now came argument to prove that the Catholic faith does not prevent any one from holding the Darwinian theory, and especially a declaration from an authority eminent among American Catholics--a declaration which has a very curious sound, but which it would be ungracious to find fault with--that "the doctrine of evolution is no more in opposition to the doctrine of the Catholic Church than is the Copernican theory or that of Galileo.

" Here and there, indeed, men of science like Dawson, Mivart, and Wigand, in view of theological considerations, sought to make conditions; but the current was too strong, and eminent theologians in every country accepted natural selection as at least a very important part in the mechanism of evolution. At the death of Darwin it was felt that there was but one place in England where his body should be laid, and that this place was next the grave of Sir Isaac Newton in Monsters and Mad Scientists : A Cultural History of the Horror Movie Abbey.

The noble address of Canon Farrar at his funeral was Historyy from many pulpits in Europe and America, and theological opposition as such was ended. Occasionally appeared, it is true, a survival of the old feeling: the Rev.
