Why do we believe in God?

 

The founding fathers would be embarrassed of this country if they were still around today and hear politicians and religious fanatics utter such things as "in God we trust", "God bless America", or "this is God's country". In fact many religious people don't, or just ignore, the fact that the founding fathers were very anti-religion. They created the constitution and made sure that religion did NOT interfere in politics, thus the creation of the separation of church and state. My favorite founding father is Thomas Jefferson.

"Religions are all alike – founded upon fables and mythologies."
"I do not find in orthodox Christianity one redeeming feature."
- Thomas Jefferson, 3 rd president of the United States

In fact, he wrote a book called The life and morals of Jesus of Nazareth. He re-wrote the the new testament and took out all the bells and whistles; the virgin birth, the miracles, and the claim of Jesus' divinity. This is a huge slap to the face to all Christians. Other great minds include:

"Lighthouses are more helpful than churches."- Benjamin Franklin

"This would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religion in it." - John Adams

"Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise." - James Madison

I could go on and on, quote after quote, of the very creators of this country who all knew that religion did not have a place in the progress of their newly formed union. How did the US become so Christian all of a sudden?
