Acuteness Of Educated Deaf Mutes
One evening the senior class of girls and boys in a School for the deaf
and dumb were invited to put any questions they wished to the Teacher;
amongst others, the following (which show considerable acuteness and
reflection) were proposed to him:--Who made God? Were there any angels
before the world was made? Before the world was made, how was God
eternal? Do you know, are there houses in the moon which people inhabit?
Do you think the dwellers in the moon have got the sin as well as
ourselves? Will there be a new world when this is burnt up? How do you
know the scriptures to be the word of God? Do the angels know when the
last day will come?
