Excerpt from The Nature of Theosophical Evidence

The Christian theory has little to say about these facts. Sometimes it also denies them; sometimes it admits them, but attributes them to the devil, as it always attributedeverything which it could not understand. In any of the older countries where Christianity has long existed, we find that all the marvels of Nature are almost invariably ascribed to diabolical in uence. The circular bed of a prehistoric lake in Hampshire 15 called the Devil's Punch bowl; certain isolated spears of rock in Yorkshire are known as the Devil's Arrows; the truncated root of a cer tain species of scabious is called by the peasantry devil's bit; and so in many other cases. Mediaeval ignorance is in many ways still rampant among us, and the silly old parrot-cry of the devil is still raised in the twentieth century. But since we are speaking of proof, what proof IS there of the existence of this same devil of which they talk so glibly? Who has ever seen him? But orthodoxy does not like to be asked for proofs.
