The American Atheists will dedicate their atheist monument today. We sent a camera crew to capture the moment. Atheists will proclaim to the world that human beings are a conglomeration of atoms with electricity animating the particles. There is nothing special about you and me. All we are is dust in the wind, and today’s courts are making it official.
The American Atheists and our nation’s courts will claim they have history on their side. They will be wrong as these brief examples show:
- Jefferson believed in “the laws of nature and of nature’s God,” that we are “endowed by [our] Creator with certain unalienable rights,” that there is a “Supreme Judge of the world,” and in “the protection of Divine Providence.”
- “And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever. . .”
- John Adams wrote the following in his Diary dated July 26, 1796: “The Christian religion is, above all the Religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern Times, the Religion of Wisdom, Virtue, Equity, and humanity, let the Blackguard [Thomas] Paine say what he will; it is Resignation to God, it is Goodness itself to Man.”
