    Urges that the 'grand monuments of nature, which mark the revolutions of the globe' should evoke a far greater sense of wonder than even 'the great remains of human works'. The establishment of 'order and harmony' and the production of 'a system of life and beauty' out of the 'chaos and death' manifested by geological phenomena proves 'the infinite power, wisdom, and goodness of the Great Cause of all Being!'.
