Man, so far as natural science by itself is able to teach us, is no longer the final cause of the universe, the Heaven-descended heir of all the ages. His very existence is an accident, his story a brief and transitory episode in the life of one of the meanest of the planets.
-Arthur Balfour, The Foundations of Belief, being notes introductory to the study of theology, London: Longmans, Green, and Co., pp. 30-31, 1895
