Matter never represented God; geology cannot explain the earth, nor one of its formations, for these formations are dependent alone on Spirit, that gave them forth the eternal heavens, earth and man. Intelligence formed and peopled the universe. The scripture gives no record of solar light, until after time had been divided into day and night, and vegetation was formed; showing you light was the symbol of the Life-giving creator, and not a source of Life to the vegetable kingdom.
“All are but parts of one stupendous whole,
Whose body nature is, and God the Soul.”
(Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st ed., p,232-233)
