“The first book of Moses, called Genesis, tells us whence we come; the last book of the Bible, the Revelation of St. John, shows us whither we go. It is true, men who have considered themselves wise above that which is written, have tried in every way to gainsay this divine answer; and a false reasoning at the present day proclaims from the housetops that science has done away with the former belief concerning the origin of man, and that we are not created by God, but descended from the monkey. But these so-called ‘scientific conclusions’ are nothing but misty visions and unproved conjectures of men who rely on their own thoughts and of whom the saying is true: “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” — From Chapter 1.
