The Roman Catholic conception of a world over which God is supreme and which is ruled under him by his Church, all authority flowing from that one fount, all duty owing to that one superior, is a logical and a consistent one. Miss Frances Power Cobbe in an article in the Contemporary Review on A Faithless World, and her critics in various religious journals, offer instructive examples of these varying semi-rational schools. It needs no argument to prove that, as the bestial tendencies in us have scarcely been kept down while we believed ourselves to be immortal souls, they have it still more their own way when we feel assured wo are only mortal bodies. It is hardly an argument which will recommend Theism to the rational that losing Theism we shall lose spiritual hysterics. All these bestial tendencies will be eradicated only by the recognition of human duty, of the social bond.
