The Conflict Between Science and Religion (Oct, 1927)
This article sounds like it could have been written today, except the authors seem more accepting of evolution.
The Conflict Between Science and Religion
A Discussion by Leaders in American Life, with an Introduction By BRUCE BARTON
Author of “The Man Nobody Knows” and “The Book Nobody Knows”
THE printing of these statements is a public service. It ought to bring us closer to the day when the absurd phrase “the conflict between science and religion” will be permanently in the discard.
When theologians presume to prescribe the boundaries of truth they put themselves in the impossible position of most of their predecessors through the Middle Ages. When scientists presume to announce that man is merely material, coming from nothing and bound nowhere, and that the universe is a meaningless riddle, they are equally out of their depth.

$5,000 for Proving the Earth is a Globe
by JAY EARLE MILLER
Post and Gatty didn’t fly around the world, according to Wilbur Glenn Voliva, they merely flew in a circle around the North Pole. This article presents Voliva’s theory of a flat world, and tells you how you can win his offer of $5,000 for proving that he is wrong.
WOULD you like to earn $5,000? If you can prove that the world is a sphere, floating in space, turning on its own axis, revolving around the sun, you can earn a prize of that amount. Such a prize has been posted for years, offered by Wilbur Glenn Voliva, general overseer of Zion, 111., home of the Christian Catholic Apostolic Church, founded some thirty years ago by the late John Alexander Dowie.

I’m not sure I get the analogy here. I mean I appreciate the message they are trying to get across. However it seems that if he really didn’t want to plow that acre he could just use ddt or something and kill all those dang weeds. Which I guess represent black people, or jews. Or does the soil represent a minority and the weeds represent um… bad minorities? That want to infect the pristine, weed free majority?!?
Well at least the message in the second part is clear: Speak out whenever you hear someone say they are not going to plow a field. And don’t spread rumors about dirt that is different than what you are used to.
Weeds or Crops America?
The farmer looked at his untilled acre.
“Nope,” he said, “Won’t stick a plow in there. Don’t care if it is fertileâ€”I just don’t like the color of the soil.”
So the weeds grew rank and spread their seeds to his other acres, fouling his cotton and stunting his corn. And his harvest was poor.
There are some who would do the same for America. They would neglect the cultivation of the minds of young growing Americans. They would set them apart, deny them equal advantages …
