A theory found among the
theologians of several centuries
ago i.s that when Adam h\ trans
givssioii offended (bid he was
deprived of one of his senses
the spirit sense, by which lie
was enabled to perceive things
spiriturally. to converse with
spirits and attain heights iu
spirit love. Being deprived of
tlie spirit sense his offspring is
without it, too, though occa-
sional glimpses of the spirit
world are afforded as special
favors. That many people re-
ally imagine they see ghosts
and spirits when they do not is
true; but this no more proves
that all spirit sights are brain
creations than the assertions of
a lunatic that lie is a king
proves there tire no kings ill
the world. Counterfeits are
evidence that there is it real.
