WHY "PAGANS"?

HE term

TH

[ocr errors]
[ocr errors]

pagan literally means villa

ger, rustic or barbarian, and as used by Christians means an idolatrous or godless man-a heathen: A heathen means a heather-man, bushman or savage! Now consider the absurdity of applying this term pagan to the old Greek Philosophers, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, three of the greatest minds in the history of religion, ethics and philosophy. These men were not.rustics or barbarians and not godless, but eminently" godly," and represented the highest urban culture. In their works will be found the most exalted conceptions of God, the Soul, and a life of virtue. In the words of Socrates, 500 years before the New Testament was written, will be found a clearer statement of the doctrine of the immortal soul and its future states of probation, reward and punishment than can be found in any part of the Bible. And in Plato's Dialogues will be found a perfect statement of the Golden Rule, 400 B.C., and also a full statement of the modern utilitarian theory of ethics in terms identical with that given by our greatest modern evolutionist, Herbert Spencer. To get a true idea of "pagan" teachings and correct popular misconceptions, read vol. I of Evolution of Ethics by The Brooklyn Ethical Association, entitled The Ethics of the Greek Philosophers, 333 pages, 21 illustrations, including many portraits of the philosophers and a Life of Socrates.
