Excerpt from The Conflicts of the Age: 1. An Advertisement for a New Religion, by an Evolutionist; 2. The Confession of an Agnostic, by an Agnostic; 3. What Morality Have We Left? By a New Light Moralist; 4. Review of the Fight, by a Yankee Farmer Among our advanced thinkers two points are now happily settled beyond the need of further inquiry or even the propriety of reconsideration. One is, that all the old religions, including Christianity, in one sense the best and in another the worst of them, are waxing old, and must soon die. Each of the creeds has had its little day, as our Broad Church poet sings - little compared with the many and prolonged geological ages, or even with the myriads of years which have elapsed since the man-apes began to stand upright, and try to look up to heaven; but the ages of the past are merging into the future, as the dawn brightens into the day. First, fetichism had its day, probably a very long, prehistoric one, when men, just risen above monkeys, struggled to speak, and had an awe of earth-powers then came the worship of the higher works of Nature - sun, moon, stars, and animals; then polytheism, which divided the complex one into many to give a power to each agent of Nature; next, or at the same time, hero - worship, with idolatry and carved images, then a pantheism on the rise of philosophy, and among.

Excerpt from The Presbyterian and Reformed Review: July, 1896 I cannot know it I doubt it yes, I disbelieve it for any thing that all the world can know, I am at liberty to deny it, and I shall act and live accordingly. And it must be said that this attitude, not merely of suspended doubt but of practical denial, is not without its rational defense. If there be a good God who has created man intelligent and thoughtful and yet unable to know his Creator, then men may argue that God is weak and so unworthy of their homage, or that God is unjust and so forfeits their reverent regard. Granted the premise of intellectual agnosticism, and the conclusion of entire indifference to God follows. Incapacity for religious knowledge becomes a sufficient warrant for lack of religi ous faith. Prof. Huxley's candid confession of the blighting influ ences of his method is supported by reason as well as by the facts: Agnosticism can be said to be a stage in the evolution of religion only as death may be said to be a final stage in the evolution of life/'1' About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Theological Review, 1879, Vol. 16: A Quarterly Journal of Religious Thought and Life Mr. Dean's attack on Secularism, as held by Mr. Holyoake, does but afford a convenient motto introducing a great subject. The new name, Agnosticism, best defines Holyoake's position. He refuses the name Atheist he simply asserts that he knows no adequate proof, and no adequate disproof, of any moral and overruling God. Mr. Dean seems to disallow this intermediate position, and insists that whatever is not Theism is Atheism.
