Now we May ask atheists what Thuv mean by the word nature if by it they understand a future that in its Wisdom and Providence disposes All things according to a pre concerted plan they change the word but retain the substance. This nature is the great intelligent canse in questions it is gon. Hut no a to be consistent they must mean by the to ctn nature the in nivers Lity of beings the collection of All things that exist the a rent whole the universe in a word the world. Now to say that the world is the author of the order of the world is a palpable Absurdity. They May speak of the energies of nature of attraction impulse repulsion Anil Affinity they May amuse themselves with such accidents or properties of matter. We herein sec Only certain rules or Laws hut where is the regulator where is the legislator we herein perceive the Means of order but which far from excluding presuppose an ordaining an Active Power. Fortunately they no longer invoke necessity. But we will endeavour to understand them and prevent them from mis applying those important terms. Do they pretend to assert that the present order of the world has necessarily existed of itself from All Eter nity if so the voice of the whole world is raised against them. Ancient and modern philosophers and people atheists and believers All agree that the world has not always been As it is and the tradition of the primitive chaos whence the universe with All its wonders arose has been regularly preserved Lay every nation however Savage or refined. Will they presume to Advance that the present order of things is the necessary result of the mechanical Laws of this visible world ? who then has established these primordial Laws which Are productive of such wonderful results who prescribed their combinations whence come the principles of order which by their development formed and still preserve the universe How ran they account for the exact regularity which the second minute and hour hands of a watch Are known to observe they will inform us that All this is the result of a secret mechanism. True hut then is not this mechanism the work of an intelligent watchmaker who has judiciously adapted and put the various Springs und parts of the machine in their proper places and in motion do we not see an army performing the most in Trieste military evolutions in the most perfect order and time atheists will answer True hut then say they it is the natural consequence of tactics and experience. Well. But does not All this suppose a prime mover who commands and regulates the whole thus it is in vain for them to suppose or look for in nature the successive movements and combinations which give Rise to the Phenomena that strike and till us with admiration. We must recur to n primary Mellicient cause of the beauteous order w hich irresistibly affects us. We have already stated that wherever Unity is there must be n causative and preservative principle of such Unity. If they attempt to explain the present world by Means of certain changes and transformations Independent of the primitive action of an intelligent cause we will then in order to expose the in tunability the nothingness of their system apply it to the social compact and ask Why Lias France for instance subsisted is a National body and whence came the political regime which she now possesses the following is their answer. In tracing age after age we find Laws and customs families succeeding families generations passing away and others succeeding them time introducing various changes in manners and in Laws government undergoing numerous variations and we finally arrive at the present period and order of things who would be satisfied with such a theory ? would not a sensible Man exclaim what Yon speak to me of Laws usages changes and re Volution Sto explain the actual state of France but in thus tracing age after age and generation after generation must we not As it were arrive at the very Cradle of the French nation must we not meet with some individuals some thinking intelligent provident beings who founded civilized and governed the nation undoubtedly. And so it is with regard to the physical world. Suppose the destruction and regeneration of As Many suns is you think proper suppose As Many Carth quakes and revolutions in nature As the imagination can conceive fancy new worlds rising out of the ruins of the old form new systems upon All the relations and the various degrees of improvement which successive transformations May have inspired we must after All ascend the vast Chain of creation from effect to cause and eventually reach the first great link and rest upon the primary regulator of All. Yes extend the Chain As indefinitely As mechanical labour or Mathon Matirn Industry will enable Yon. You must eventually Stop at the fixed Point from which it is suspended. In nature As Well As in society there arc Ina ii Laws according to which things move and Are maintained but in nature As Well As in society legislation supposes a legislator. Atheists in order to get rid of the interference of an intelligent cause May perhaps
