Could you guys help me out?
I need help identifying theses in three different articles. I don't understand how to do that ****. I'm kind of retarded.
Here is the first paragraph of the first article
"The purpose of this paper is to view Darwin and his writings in the broad perspective of the historical conflict between science and religion. The modern history of that conflict may be divided into three overlapping stages. In the first stage, the new physics and cosmology of the seventeenth century, combined with scientific, technological, and economic progress in the eighteenth, gave rise to natural religion, or deism, as a competitor of revealed religion. In the second stage, reaching its climax with Darwin, the further progress of science undermined the traditional conception of nature as a stable framework of rationally contrived structures, a view which had underlain both Christian natural theology and deism. In the third stage, beginning in Darwin's day and ex- tending to the present, the methods of natural science were applied to the study of human nature and society, and these methods came to be regarded by many as the only methods which could yield knowledge of man and nature."
second article is in the attachment
