But this consideration is eliohas in itself sufficient to take account of the issues that are involved ; it will not explain, for example, why filiphas Levi, who consistently teaches in the ” Doctrine and Ritual ” that the dogmas of so-called revealed religion are nurse-tales for children, should subsequently have insisted on their acceptation in the sense of the orthodox Church by the grown men of science, and it becomes necessary here to touch upon a matter which, by its nature, and obviously, does not admit of complete elucidation.
