Christianity, Creation, Metaphysics

    Reports a disputation with a Brahmin at the 'great temple of Conjeveram', in which he was asked, among other questions: 'Is God a Spirit? How then did he create matter? Is the soul God or not? Is the soul immortal? Then it is eternal, for what has no end can have no beginning'. Observes: 'Most of them prefer to speculate and converse on such subjects, to having their own state laid open, and God's will concerning them pointed out'. (703)
