Abstract

Having now definitely ascertained that the facts of cerebral anatomy not only sustain the dual hypothesis, but locate the organ by and through which the subjective mind can manifest itself (see record 2008-12585-015), it remains to consider briefly the bearing of the facts of evolution upon the subject matter. For, if it is true that man has a soul, and that his soul is immortal, all the pertinent phenomena of nature will conspire to verify those facts. It will also be in order briefly to consider the facts of evolution, as manifested in the creation of the dual mental organism, in their bearings on the question of the character and attributes of the Deity. In this chapter, the author considers the following topics: (1) the physical basis for immortality; (2) the ultimate goal of psychic evolution; (3) evidence of design in psychic development; (4) nature conceals God, as man reveals God; (5) the functions of the soul; (6) the benevolence of God; (7) painless death. The author concludes that God is ever kind to the victim of the inevitable. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)
