Darwinism a fair Sample of Modern Scientific Conclusion; Facts and Appearances Differentiated; Law of Foreshortening Ignored by Modern Astronomers; Principles of Optics Applied to Geodetic Observation; Our Minor Proposition; Our Sub-Major Proposition; The Koreshan General Proposition


Koreshan Premise Absolutely Indisputable. Law of Visual Deviation Accounts for Certain Phenomena; A Commonly Accepted Law of Optics; Cellular Cosmogony Dispels Idea of Illimitability


Solving an Incalculable (?) Problem. Easiest Way to Find a Solution Is to Jump at a Conclusion


The Earth Is a Shell; Sun Is the Center. Origin of the Moon and Gravity; Cause of Day and Night, also the Four Seasons; Meeting Point of Gravity and Levity; Cold the Direct Reflection of Heat; The Focal Point of all Influx; Planets Are Spheres of Physical Spirit; How Eclipses Are Produced; Geometry the Basis of all Measurement; Limitation a Pronounced Property of Form
