1818  Sumner, John Bird. A treatise on the records of the creation, and on
the moral attributes of the creator; with particular reference to the
Jewish history, and to ... 2nd ed., corrected. Volume 1. 50 (Making of the
Modern Economy)  But as the word Chance has been sometimes repeated in
modern days as if it were really something more than an unmeaning and
unphilosophical term; it will be proper very briefly to show how entirely
we must oppose all the deductions of reason and daily experience, if we
for a moment remove from our system the operation and agency of
intelligent design.
