"Astronomy and Religion." "One
does not go to scientific books with
the expectation of finding the
name of God written therein,"
Professor Rufus went on.
Professor Rufus continued with
some general facts about the solar
system and the sidereal system, ex-
plaining various phelomena con-
nected with the sun, moon, planets,
and stars. He illustrated how the
astronomer is able to understand
what elements compose the heaven-
ly bodies by means of the spectrum.
Through a series of related facts,
Professor Rufus showed the almost
infinite distance of some of the
stars in our own sidereal system and
then explained that there are sys-
tems just as large as this one which
are over 100 million light years
