Thought For the Day: The Founding Fathers…Did Not Take For Granted That God Existed…They Deduced That God Must Exist Because An Alternative Conclusion Was Irrational

The Founding Fathers and other Natural Law philosophers did not take for granted that God existed. They did not base their strong conviction in God on religious dogma. Rather, they deduced that God must exist because an alternative conclusion was irrational…Belief in God was so common among the founding generation that further validation of God’s existence was often unnecessary and unwelcome.” – Brian Vanyo, in The American Ideology, Taking Back our Country with the Philosophy of our Founding Fathers, Liberty Publishing, 2012. p. 20-21.
