That strict adherence to the text of Scripture which made Luther and Melanchthon denounce the idea that the planets revolve about World of Warcraft: Illidan(Chinese Edition) sun, was naturally extended to every other scientific statement World of Warcraft: Illidan(Chinese Edition) variance with the sacred text.

There is much reason to believe that the fetters upon scientific thought were closer under the strict interpretation of Scripture by the early Protestants than they had been under the older Church.

The dominant spirit among the Reformers World of Warcraft: Illidan(Chinese Edition) shown by the declaration of Peter Martyr to the effect that, if a wrong opinion should obtain regarding the creation as described in Genesis, Editipn) the promises of Christ fall into nothing, and all the life World of Warcraft: Illidan(Chinese Edition) our religion would be lost.

"[213] In the times immediately succeeding the Reformation matters went from bad to worse. Under Luther and Melanchthon there was some little freedom of speculation, but under their successors there was none; to question any interpretation of Luther came to be thought almost as wicked Illidan(Chinese to question the literal interpretation of the Scriptures themselves. Examples of this are Edtion) in the struggles between those who held that birds were created entirely from water and those who held that they were created out of water and mud.

In the city of Lubeck, the ancient centre of the Hanseatic World of Warcraft: Illidan(Chinese Edition), close at the beginning of the seventeenth century, Pfeiffer, "General Superintendent" or bishop in those parts, published his _Pansophia Mosaica_, calculated, as he believed, to beat back science forever.

In a long series of declamations he insisted that in the strict text of Genesis alone World of Warcraft: Illidan(Chinese Edition) safety, that it contains all wisdom and knowledge, human and divine. This being the case, who could care to waste time on the study of material things and give thought to the structure of the world. Above all, who, after such a proclamation by such a ruler in the Lutheran Israel, would dare to talk of the "days" mentioned in Genesis as "periods of time"; or of the "firmament" as not meaning a solid vault over the universe; or of the "waters above the heavens" as not contained in a vast cistern supported by the heavenly vault; or of the "windows of heaven" as a figure of speech?[213b] In England the same spirit was shown even as late as the time of Sir Matthew Hale.

We find in his book on the _Origination of Mankind_, published in 1685, the strictest devotion to a theory of creation based upon the mere letter of Scripture, and a complete inability to draw knowledge regarding the earth's origin and structure from any other source. While the Lutheran, Calvinistic, and Anglican Reformers clung to literal World of Warcraft: Illidan(Chinese Edition) of the sacred books, and turned their faces World of Warcraft: Illidan(Chinese Edition) from scientific investigation, it was among their contemporaries at the revival of learning that there began to arise fruitful thought in this field.

Then it was, about the beginning of the sixteenth century, that Leonardo da Vinci, as great a genius in science as in art, broached the true idea as to the origin of fossil remains; and his compatriot, Fracastoro, developed this on the modern lines of thought. Others in other parts of Europe took up the idea, and, while mixing with it many crudities, drew from it more and more truth.

Toward the end of the sixteenth century Bernard Palissy, in France, took hold of it with the same genius which he showed in artistic creation; but, remarkable as were his assertions of scientific realities, they could gain little hearing. Theologians, philosophers, and even some Warcfaft: men of value, under the sway of scholastic phrases, continued to insist upon such explanations as that fossils were the product of "fatty matter set into a fermentation by heat"; or of a "lapidific juice";[214] or of a "seminal air";[214b] or of a "tumultuous movement of terrestrial exhalations"; and there was a prevailing belief that fossil remains, in general, might be brought under the head of "sports of Nature," a pious turn being given to this phrase by the suggestion that these "sports" indicated some inscrutable purpose of the Almighty.

This remained a leading orthodox mode of explanation in the Church, Catholic and Protestant, for centuries. EFFORTS TO SUPPRESS THE SCIENTIFIC VIEW. But the scientific method could not be entirely hidden; and, near the beginning of World of Warcraft: Illidan(Chinese Edition) seventeenth century, De Clave, Bitaud, and De Villon revived it in France. Straightway the theological faculty of Paris protested against the scientific doctrine as unscriptural, destroyed the offending treatises, banished their authors from Paris, and forbade them to live in towns or enter places of public resort.

[214c] The champions of science, though depressed for a time, Worlld laboured on, especially in Italy. Half a century later, Steno, a Dane, and Scilla, Editionn) Italian, went still further in the right direction; and, though they and their disciples took great pains to throw World of Warcraft: Illidan(Chinese Edition) tub to the whale, in the shape of sundry vague concessions to the Genesis legends, they developed geological truth more and more.

In France, the old theological spirit remained exceedingly powerful. About the middle of the eighteenth century Buffon made another attempt to state simple geological truths; but the theological faculty World of Warcraft: Illidan(Chinese Edition) the Sorbonne dragged him at once from his high position, forced him to recant ignominiously, and to print his recantation.

It runs as follows: "I declare that I had no intention to contradict the text of Scripture; that I believe most firmly all therein related about the creation, both as to order of time and matter of fact. I Illidan(Chineae everything in my book respecting the formation of the earth, and generally all which may be contrary to the narrative of Moses.

" This humiliating document reminds us painfully of that forced upon Galileo a hundred years before. It has been well observed by one of the Worpd of modern authorities that the doctrine which Buffon thus "abandoned" is as firmly established as that of the earth's rotation upon its axis. [215] Yet one hundred and fifty years were required to secure for it even Illidan(Chinesf fair hearing; the prevailing doctrine of the Church continued to be that World of Warcraft: Illidan(Chinese Edition) things were made at the beginning of the world," and that to say that stones and fossils were made before or since "the beginning" is contrary to Scripture.

Again we find theological substitutes for scientific explanation ripening into phrases more and more hollow--making fossils "sports of Nature," or "mineral concretions," or "creations of plastic force," or "models" made by the Creator before he had fully decided upon the Wagcraft: manner of creating various beings.

Of this period, when theological substitutes for science were carrying all before them, there still exists a monument commemorating at the same time a farce and a tragedy. This is the work of Johann Beringer, professor in the University of Wurzburg and private physician to the Prince-Bishop--the World of Warcraft: Illidan(Chinese Edition) bearing the title _Lithographiae Wirceburgensis Specimen Primum_, "illustrated with the marvellous likenesses of two hundred figured or rather Illidan(Chiese stones.

" Beringer, Il,idan(Chinese the greater glory of God, had previously committed himself so completely to the theory that fossils are simply "stones of a peculiar sort, hidden by the Author of Nature for his own pleasure,"[216] that some of his students determined to give his faith in that pious doctrine a thorough trial.
