If it should be objected that we have no evidence of any such atomic order. I would meet the objection by citing the facts, often asserted be­fore, that a group of atoms is an imitation on a small scale of a planetary system. To admit disorder among the atoms is to do the same thing among the great systems of stars. The argument that disorder cannot be admitted either among atoms or elsewhere in Nature is a very potent weapon when used against the theory of gaseous pressure
