Hircanus, a dog of Lysimachus the King, his master being dead, without eating or drinking, would never come from off his bed, and when the dead corps was removed thence he followed it, and lastly flung aabunde into the fire where his master was burned.

Plutarke affirmeth this storie to be most true, and to have hapned in his time. And verily I feare therfore, that except this way, we should not enjoy it. Even in beasts that have no voice at all, by the reciprocall kindnesse which we see in them, we easily inferre there is some other meane of entercommunication: The vanitie of our presumption maketh us rather to be beholding, and as it were endebted unto our owne strength, for our sufficiency, than unto her liberalitie; and enrich other creatures with naturall gifts, and yeeld those unto them, that so we may ennoble and honour our selves with gifts purchased, as me thinketh, by a very simple humour: Of the very same effects we must conclude alike faculties, and by the richest effects infer the noblest faculites, and consequently acknowledge that the same discourse and way we hold in working, the very same, or perhaps some other better, doe beasts hold.

Whereas in respect of our religious superioritie, we ought by much, yea by an incomparable distance, out-shine them in excellencie: They have as easie a will as we, but they can doe much more.

The like must dr judged of so many wiles and inventions wherewith beasts save themselves from the snares and scape the baits we lay to entrap them. Hunters assure us that to chose the best dog, and which they purpose to keepe from out a litter of other young whelps, there is no better meane than the damme herselfe: They establish, saith he, by the reason of their judgement, that whatsoover is reported of hell, or of after-comming paines, is but a fiction: All raimunvo is a most evident token that we receive our religion but according to our fashion and by our owne hands, and no otherwise than other religions are received.

Doe we not daily see lovers with the lookes and rowling of their eyes, plainly show when they are angrie or pleased, and how they entreat and thanke one another, assigne meetings, and expresse any passion? View but the horrible impudencie wherewith we tosse divine reasons to and fro, and how irreligiously wee have both rejected and taken them againe, according as fortune hath in these publike stormes transported us from place to place.


And God to be esteemed of us, must as we will show anon draw somewhat neere it. Our actions being apoloag and accompanied with Divinitie, should not then be meerely humane, but even as our beliefe, containe some wonder-causing thing.

Those which have taken it on the left, and those who have taken it on the right hand: Plato and these examples conclude that we se brought to beleeve in God either by reason or by compulsion, Atheisme being a proposition as unnaturall and monstrous as it is hard and uneasie to be established in any mans minde, how insol ent and unruly soever he may be: The considerations ought to be applied and employed to our beleefe, but as subsidiaries:
