The Church of England - - ENGLAND ON SUNDAY -

Peo­ple refuse to be­lieve that which they don’t want to be­lieve, in spite of ev­i­dence. When ex­plor­ers first went to Aus­tralia they found a mam­mal which laid eggs; spent some time in water, some on land; had a broad, flat tail, webbed feet, and a bill sim­i­lar to a duck.

Upon their re­turn to Eng­land, they told the pop­u­lace of this, and all felt it was a hoax.

They re­turned to Aus­tralia and found a pelt from this an­i­mal and took it back to Eng­land, but the peo­ple still felt it was a hoax. In spite of the ev­i­dence, they dis­be­lieved be­cause they didn’t want to be­lieve.
