No other question has ever engaged the attention of man more than that which relates to the origin and destiny of his race. Many theories have been advanced to account for man's origin and there is likewise great diversity of opinion as to his destiny. Evolution, it seems to one, is competent to explain the natural order of things from the crystal to man. Except we build on the sure foundation of the past and present all speculation concerning man's destiny must be conjecture.
