Strona 200 - And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament, from the waters which were above the firmament : and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
Strona 345 - And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces and worshipped God, saying, Amen, blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever, Amen.
Strona 73 - The great comet of 1843 passed within three or four minutes of the surface of the sun, and therefore directly through the midst of the corona. At the time of nearest approach its velocity was 350 miles per second, and it went with nearly this velocity through at least 300,000 miles of corona, coming out without having suffered any visible damage or retardation. To form an idea...
Strona viii - IN the infancy of a science there is no speculation so absurd as not to merit examination. The most remote and fanciful explanations of facts have often been found the true ones ; and opinions, which have in one century been objects of ridicule, have, in the next, been admitted among the elements of our knowledge.
Strona 14 - And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowls of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an helpmeet for him.
Strona vii - We are sometimes tempted to ask whether the time will ever arrive, when science shall have obtained such an ascendency in the education of the millions, that it will be possible to welcome new truths, instead of always looking upon them with fear and disquiet, and to hail every important victory gained over error, instead of resisting the new discovery, long after the evidence in its favour is conclusive.
Strona 294 - This, indeed, is the conclusion which presents itself as a deduction from the persistence of force. If stars concentrating to a common centre of gravity, eventually reach it, then the quantities of motion they have acquired must suffice to carry them away again to those remote regions whence they started. And since, by the conditions of the case, they cannot return to these remote regions in the shape of concrete masses, they must return in the shape of diffused masses. Action and reaction being...
Strona 267 - scape the naked eye. And farther on a new discovery trace Through the deep regions of encompassed space. If each bright star so many suns are found With planetary systems circled round, What vast infinitude of worlds may grace, What beings people the stupendous space? Whatever race possess the...
Strona 1 - Can man conceive beyond what God can do ? Nothing, but quite impossible, is hard. He summons into being, with like ease, A whole creation, and a single grain.
Strona 84 - Now, in the large majority of comets the velocity is so near the parabolic limit that it is not possible to decide, from observations, whether it falls short of it or exceeds it. In the case of a few comets the observations indicate an excess of velocity, but the excess is so minute that its reality cannot be confidently asserted.
