iii Although this essay is self-contained, it is also tobe the second part of a trilogy of which the other twoparts are called
Galileo Versus the Geocentric Theory of the Universe
Einstein and Modern Physics
. Inconsequence, there are frequent cross-referencesbetween this essay and the other two, which make it, while certainly not necessary, never-theless obviously desirable that all three parts of the trilogy be read incon-junction with each other. The cross-referencesdo not affect the argument of the essay.(It may also be worth mentioning that theauthor has written another essay called
Evolution or Creation?
which, although not designed to be part of this group of essays, is nevertheless on a subject which falls into the same general category.)Grateful acknowledgement is given toProfessor Richard Westfall for permission to quoteextensively from his book,
