8 "Not a nation, not a people, nor the most abject tribe, but after their own fashion has believed in an Unseen God, the First cause of unerring and immutable laws, and in the immortality of our spirit. No creed, no false philosophy, no religious exaggerations, could ever destroy that feeling. It must, therefore, be based upon an absolute truth."
