THE J0NE3-PUTNAM DE3ATE.
8ynop3ls of tfce Argurr.onis Trjduced
by Both Bides.
The following account of tho reli
gious debate which recently look place
in Summcrvillo, is by ono of the p.ir
ticipantt; Mr. Putnam and pub
lished in Freethought:
I found all nrrangcinuntfi mnde for
the debate ut Summcrville, nnd Klder
Joncp was on hand with a wliole library
of book. IIo rather thought I would
not put in an appearance. JIo seemed
to think that I was trembling in my
hoots, and when tho fctago came up
Wednesday morning and I was not on
board there was a kind of jubilation
. among tho church people, and one
man bet a sack of Hour that I would
not meet my reverend opponent, lie
lost liia sack of Hour. I missed the
etage, but chartered a special convey
ance and was there in plenty of time,
and whether the Christians woro happy
or not remains to bo seen.
Tho debate occupied seven nights.
An extra night was thrown in in order
that (Jod might have a chance to ap
pear in court and provo that lie creates
all thing!, and therefore tho Hiblo.
Elder Jones thrust this question in
to the debate tho very first ovening,
although when the list of questions at
issue wero propounded, tho question,
"Is thoro a God?" was not accepted, I
hut tho (Hicstion only: "Is tho bible
of divino origin?" As a matter of
fact, if the Clod ouestion was not
raised by mo it certainly did not come
into tho debate. 1 did not intend to
raise that question for tho simple rca
son that timo did not permit. J wan
ted to stick to tho Bible. Why my
opponent "side-tracked" on tho "God
question" I do not know. For tho
purposed of tho dobalo on tho Hiblo
origin to which tho audianco had
come to listen, I granted tho existence
of a divino being, after tho fashion of
Thomas Payne. Ah this admission on
my part was twisted into a back down,
I offered to dobato tho question on a
Boperato night, and so tho arrange
Six evenings woro devoted to tho
Bible, and tho following was tho battle
ground each ovening.
First Evening Tho gonuinefs of
tho toxt, tho credibility of tho gospels,
I denied the oxistanco of any origin
al toxt, and iilnrtnod that tho present
vorfiion was founded on MS. copies of
no earlier dato than tho 10th century
and that tho gospels as we now have
them were not written until ono hun
dred and fifty years after tho death of
Elder Jones granted my first posi
tion, and said that tho faet that the
presont version was a copy did not m
validato its historic usefulness. He
affirmed that tho Gospels, as wo now
lmvothem, woro written almost inimo
diatoly after tho death of Jesus.
Second evening I alllrnicd and
proved by such authorities as Eusbius
and others of the Christian fathers,
and by modern scholarship, that tliu
Biblo was entirely of pagan origin ;
that thoro was nothing "now or
strange" in it; that the cross, thorite
of baptism, and tho Lord's supper, as
well as tho theology and mythology of
tho Hiblo, could bo found in anterior
Elder Jonos endeavored to robut my
position and show that tho Hiblo was
a revelation, and not simply a ropub
licatjon of what was in tho world be
fore. " "
Third evening Tho battlo ground
was tho prophesies. Elder Jones had
an immenso chart on tho blackboard
at tho rear of tho platform, on which
wh dopiotod in various colors tho im
ago of Daniel, etc. This was Elder
Jones' strong point. Ho had got the
whole thing by heart, and ho made a
pretty good display of historic know-lodge.
Who but a divino being cotim
have given Daniel such a wonderful
amount of historio information?
I replied as follows: First, there
aro recorded prophesies outsido of tho
Bible as marvelous as any that aro in
it, to which no divino origin is oyer
ascribed; Second, that there aro many
falso prophesies in tho Hiblo the
prophesies concerning Babylon, Tyro,
Damascus, Egypt, nnd tho prophecy
of Jesus concerning tho end of tho
world. Jf tho truth of a prophecy
proves divino origin, then certainly
tho falsehood of a prophecy dUprovcs
with equal force
Fourth evening Tho main question
wan as to tho character of God as given
in tho Biblo, I nfilrmed that tho
character was that of a partial, unjust,
oruel, and tyrauioul being, Elder
Joneit a (firmed that God hud a right to
aaurder, or to do unytbing that ho do
sired with his creatures, and at the
very worst the Hiblo God was n )
more atrocious than the God of nature.
I answered that tho badness of nature
did not justify tho badnces of a God.
If God made nature ho was responsi
ble for all its horrors; if he did not
make nature and had, like man, to
submit to the ovil of nature, then be
waH no more divino than the man him
self. Tho crimes of God cannot be
justified by tho cruelties of nature.
Fiom tho standpointof humanity both
arc to be condemned.
Fifth evening The chief discussion
was on the immoralities of the Bible.
I showed that it justified and endorsed
slavery, polygamy, wars of extermina
tion, etc. Elder Jones affirmed that
God did not want slavery or polygamy,
but on account of tho condition of tho
ago was obliged to regulate until such
time as he could abolish. I answered
that according to this, God was not so
determined a reformer as uarnson nor
to powerful as. Abraham Lincoln.
Sixth evening The ground of de
bate was tho miracles and crucifixion
of Jesus, and the scientific truthful
ness of the Bible. Elder Jones af
firmed that tho Bible was not at vari
ance with geology or any of tho sci
ences; that wo had a valid account of
tho miracles, and tho cruciliction of
Christ, and that such a wonderful
event, so well attested and admitted,
must provo tho divinity of Jesus, and
thus tho divinity of tho Biblo.
I answered so far as history was
concerned Jesus was a myth; there was
no ovidenco, that could bo accepted in
court, that testified such a man over
lived ; thero wae a chasm of two hun
dred years from tho alleged death of
Jesus wliero thoro was no account of
him at all. There was not a particle
of proof that ho -ever lived. IIo is
liko, William Tell, a supposition of
history and no more. Tho contlict.
between the Biblo and seienco is irre
concilable. Tho knowledgo of to-day
demonstrates beyond doubt that the
Bible is absolutely an untruthful book
and entirely of human origin.
I have ondoavorcd in this short re
sume to give a fair account of tho ar
guments of Elder Jonos. IIo debated
well. Ho did not resort to any poi
sonalities, but stood bravely to argu
ment. He is about as thoroughly
posted as any preacher 1 know of. Ho
evidently believes in his side of the
qucstiou and defends it earnestly, and
in this case tho Christians chose as
good a representative as could bo found
in this part of tho country.
Tho Christians, outsido of tho debate,
adopted tactics which did not at all
conduce to tho boneilt of their cause.
The Itev. Parker, howovor, pitched
in on tho merits of tho Presbyterian
creed. Ho announced to answer mo
on Sunday morning, and I announced
an extra lecture on Sunday afternoon
to answer him. I attended his ser
vices on Sunday morning and so did
other Liborals, but they novor will
again, nor would I ever again notice
that kind of attack. It was simply a
tirade of abuso of which his own party
wero thoroughly ashamed. He has in
ilictcd an injury upon his church from
which it will never recover.
I had a crowded houto in tho after
noon to my reply. 1 let the dirt alone
and did my best to show tho "beauties"
of the Christian creed.
Tlio dobato on Tuesday ovening be
tween Eldor Jonos and lnytolf was
about God. Tho Elder is a philosopher
after tho heart of Wilfred Hall, lie
endeavored to show design, oto. ; that
thero was a spiritual substance: that
mind antedates matter, etc. Ho is a
thorough anti-evolutionist, and rejects
tho science of Huxley, Ty tidal, and etc.,
for that of Wilfred Hall.
I maintained the following positions:
that reason i nd experience aro tho
solo source of knowledge, therefore to
provo tho existence of a God, know
ledgo must be infinite, which it is not.
Matter and motion and the laws of
matter and motion aro eternal, and
thero is no need of a God to make them.
Design is simply adaption, and adap
tion is as much for evil as good ; as
witness the cancor which is one of tho
most beautiful adaptions in tho uni
verse to tho oyo of scionco it is sim
ply lovely hut what is it? one of tho
most perfect instruments of torture
conceivable. Did God make this?
What is God? Inflnito wmlom and
inllnato love. Therefore only a per
fect universe can be tho result of God's
oxistanco, perfect beuuty, perfect de
light. Tho universe is ono of ovil as
well as good, and therefore there can
not bo a God.
This ia tho drift of the arguments.
Liberals who understand will know
how tho mattor waa presented from
evening to evening along these various
lines ol debate. Of course there was
really nothing now, but largo audien
ces were present and the interest was
maintained until tho close. 1 am am
ply satisfied with tho outcome, and
that Frccthonght is on tho gain.
It. D. liuckman presided with genial
impartiality. J. W. Cowan, rcprescn
tatie of tho Chtistian church, on tho
committee with J. W. Xorval was fair
Tho audiences were attentive and
appreciative, and so fr as the debate
was concerned each jM'akor was treated
with respect and politeness.
Outside of the debate, on Monday
evening an attempt was made in the
direction of a personal attack. But it
was not well received, and as most of
those who tigntd tho document didn't
understand its purport nothing more
will bo said about it, unless the matter
bo carried further by its originators. If
this is the ease then theic will bo war
to the knife. With the exception of
this and the uncalled-for ubuto of the
Kov. Parker, I have only the most
pleasant memories of this varied and
