We have been accustomed to think, most of us, that in the early days of the world's geologic history Nature manifested herself in forms different from those with which we are familiar; that God, the supreme Power of the universe, employed other types of energy than those by means of which He works today. And these conceptions have been fostered and influenced very largely, consciously or unconsciously, by our religions and theological training.
