that life is the result of organization maintain the doctrine of 

_spontaneous generation_; that is, the production of life without any 

agency other than the recognized forces of nature being brought about 

simply by a fortuitous combination of atoms. Although this doctrine 

cannot be said to be inconsistent with the theory of life presented, 

yet it is by no means a legitimate or necessary result of it; and 

observation proves its falsity. 

 

The testimony of all nature, as almost universally admitted by 

scientific men, is that life originated through a creative act by the 

first Great Cause, who gave to certain bodies the requisite arrangement 

or organization to enable them to perform certain functions, and 

delegated to them the power to transmit the same to other matter, and 

thus to perpetuate life. The Creator alone has the power to originate 

life. Man, with all his wisdom and attainments, cannot discover the 

secret of organization. He may become familiar with its phenomena, but 

he cannot unravel, further, the mystery of life. The power of organizing 

is possessed only by the lower class of living or organized bodies, 

those known as vegetable organisms or plants. A grain of wheat, a kernel 

of corn, a potato, when placed under favorable conditions, takes the 

inert, lifeless particles of matter which lie about it in the earth 

and air, and organizes them into living substances like itself. 

 

To man and animals the Creator delegated the power to form their own 

peculiar structures from the vitalized tissues of plants. Thus, both 

animal and vegetable life is preserved without the necessity of 

continued acts of creative power, each plant and each animal possessing 

the power not only to preserve its own life, but also to aid, at least, 

in the perpetuation of the species. The record of creation in Genesis 

harmonizes perfectly with this view, it being represented that God 

formed (organized or arranged) man, animals, and vegetable productions 

from the earth. 

 

Simplest Form of Generation.--Deep down beneath the waters of the ocean, 

covering its bottom in certain localities, is found a curious slime, 

which, under the microscope, is seen to be composed of minute rounded 

masses of gelatinous matter, or protoplasm. By watching these little 

bodies intently for a few minutes, the observer will discover that each 

is a living creature capable of moving, growing, and assuming a variety 

of shapes. Continued observation will reveal the fact that these little 

creatures multiply; and a more careful scrutiny will enable him to see 

_how_ they increase. Each divides into two equal parts so nearly alike 

that they cannot be distinguished apart. In this case the process of 

generation is simply the production of two similar individuals from 

one. 

 

A small quantity of slime taken from the surface of a stone near the 

bottom of an old well, or on the seaside, when placed under the 

microscope, will sometimes be found to contain large numbers of small, 

round, living bodies. Careful watching will show that they also
