An Evolutionist’s View on Nature and Religion
A woman who knew my evolution beliefs once asked me where heaven is. There seemed to her to be no place left for it in the cosmos of the evolutionist. This is a type of difficulty which perplexes many persons. They dwell upon the physical symbolism of faith and creed, as if the things of the spirit must be measured by time and space and materials. I could only answer that I never expect to be able to discover heaven with a telescope. Perhaps heaven is much nearer than we think.
– L.H. Bailey, from the 1899 article, “An Evolutionist’s View on Nature and Religion” in The Idepedendent
