Scripture and Nature agree in this, that all things were covered with water; how and when this aspect began, and how long it lasted, Nature says not, Scripture relates. That there was a watery fluid, however, at a time when animals and plants were not yet to be found, and that the fluid covered all things, is proved by the strata of the higher mountains, free from all heterogeneous material.

But the similarity of matter and form in the strata of mountains which are different and distant from each other, proves that the fluid was universal.

Such are the methods pursued by all successful inventors, scientific investigators and discoverers.
