Well, it seems to be claiming to be using science to back up religious ideas. It's silliness though, I'll dissect one of his paragraphs:
"The argument has been something after this manner: The Ultimate Cause back of all things must be One, since Life cannot be divided against Itself; the Infinite must be One, for there could not be two Infinites. Whatever change takes place must take place within the One; but the One must be Changeless; for, being One and Only, It cannot change into anything but Itself."
This makes a vague kind of philosophical sense, but it is convoluted and confusing.
"All seeming change, then, is really only the play of Life upon Itself; and all that happens must happen by and through It."
Now, I guess he's saying that reality only exists in our interpretation of it, but this is not really related to what he said just before that.
"How do these things happen through It? By some inner action upon Itself. What would be the nature of this inner action? It could not be physical, as we understand physics, but would have to be by the power of the inner Word of Life; that is, the Voice of God, God standing for the First great and Only Cause of all that Is."
How does he know this? This is not a conclusion that can be reached by the things he stated earlier in the paragraph. This part, he just had to make up.
