It is true that in earlier times no absolute belief in the uniformity of nature existed, even amongst the select few. The Greek philosophers, including Aris totle, recognised 'chance' and 'spontaneity' as find ing a definite place in Nature, and to this extent they were not sure that the future would resemble the past. But as we have become more familiar with a wider range of natural phenomena and with their mutual relations or order of appearance, so has the conception of chance or spontaneity disappeared from the scien tific horizon - driven out of the field by the steady advance of Law and Order. Those who embrace the Evolution Philosophy are foremost in this opinion they believe that no effects of whatsoever kind can occur without adequate causes, and, the conditions being similar, that the same results will alway follow the action of any given cause. Their whole creed is, in fact, pre-eminently based upon an assumed Uni formity of Nature.
