The story of our world is a story that is still very imperfectly known. A couple of hundred years ago
men possessed the history of little more than the last three thousand years. What happened before
that time was a matter of legend and speculation. Over a large part of the civilized world it was
believed and taught that the world had been created suddenly in 4004 B.C., though authorities
differed as to whether this had occurred in the spring or autumn of that year. This fantastically
precise misconception was based upon a too literal interpretation of the Hebrew Bible, and upon
rather arbitrary theological assumptions connected therewith. Such ideas have long since been
abandoned by religious teachers, and it is universally recognized that the universe in which we live
has to all appearances existed for an enormous period of time and possibly for endless time. Of
course there may be deception in these appearances, as a room may be made to seem endless by
putting mirrors facing each other at either end. But that the universe in which we live has existed
only for six or seven thousand years may be regarded as an altogether exploded idea.
The earth, as everybody knows nowadays, is a spheroid, a sphere slightly compressed, orange
fashion, with a diameter of nearly 8,000 miles. Its spherical shape has been known at least to a
limited number of intelligent people for nearly 2,500 years, but before that time it was supposed to be flat, and various ideas which now seem fantastic were entertained about its relations to the sky
and the stars and planets. We know now that it rotates upon its {2}axis (which is about 24 miles
shorter than its equatorial diameter) every twenty-four hours, and that this is the cause of the
alternations of day and night, that it circles about the sun in a slightly distorted and slowly variable
oval path in a year. Its distance from the sun varies between ninety-one and a half millions at its
nearest and ninety-four and a half million miles.
