Alfred R. Wallace (S397a: 1887)

Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: Wallace contributed a brief note to a feature titled "Science and Immortality" printed in the 7 April 1887 issue of The Christian Register; his words appeared on page 213.

    Outside of modern Spiritualism, I know of nothing in recognized science to support the belief in immortality; and, though I consider Spiritualism to be as truly an established experimental science as any other, it is not recognized as such.

    [We published in the Christian Register, March 4, 1886, an extended article, giving Mr. Wallace's views on Science and Spiritualism. We reprint here one or two significant paragraphs.] . . .
