The Progress of Creation : Considered with Reference to the Present Condition of the Earth (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Progress of Creation: Considered With Reference to the Present Condition of the Earth WE learn from the Mosaic record, that the first act of creative power gave existence to the mighty nucleus of our globe, and that, before the revolution of seven days, the herbless gra nite was clothed with vegetation moving creatures then passed through the waters, and winged fowl were seen to ﬂy across the heavens; cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth, walked forth in all the vigour of their new existence, and, lastly, man, created in the image of his Maker, had dominion over every living thing. All then was perfect; but man fell, and with him fell the fresh and beautiful Creation. My meditations on this subject have led me to pass on to the present condition of the earth.
