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?
