To a great extent religion determines the advancement that any people makes, and the Indian was no exception in this connection. The writer wishes to explain that he is to deal only with our Indians as found by the Europeans following the discovery by Columbus, and hence is not called on to consider or discuss the claims of the higher systems of religion, and consequently all special questions, such as, the inspiration and infallibility of the Bible, are entirely foreign to his purpose. He is here presenting the facts as found by him and other scientists, leaving the conclusions for the reader to draw as the facts indicate.
