- Science says that the process of creation took millions of years; Genesis says that it occurred in six days. Why cling to a story which reason discredits?
- But apart from the time required, science contradicts the very sequence of events as given by Moses.
- I have studied Christianity and it is my honest opinion that it is not true. Yet you tell me that I am to believe that it is true!
- Colonel Ingersoll has pointed out the mistakes of Moses. He says, "I am probably the only man who has read the Bible through this year in the United States. Everybody talks about the Bible and nobody reads it. That is why it is so generally believed. I have wasted this time but I had a purpose in view." Ingersoll was a man of great intellectual powers, and had he lived earlier he would have been put to death, as thousands of others, by the Church when they dared to challenge priestcraft.

- Did not the Jews think that they were asked to eat the very body of Christ? Yet He refuted them by saying that His body would ascend to Heaven and that the flesh profits nothing. Jn. VI., 63-64.
- The Bible tells us to prove all things. I. Thess. V., 21. The Catholic Church demands that her adherents prove nothing, accepting all on her authority, and without question.
- It is not. Christ said, "Use not vain repetitions as do the heathen, who think in their much speaking to be heard."
