Was Thomas Paine of sound mind?

FYI he was known as a drunkard and was living in a threesome in France and hanging out with whores. He may have had syphilis.

I'm just saying, because it is really stretching it to claim the twelve tribes of Israel - the entire nation of Israel - tens of millions of people over time, are just made up and the sign of the zodiac. Talk about anti-jewish Thomas Paine. Mental delusion would explain it - and his death was ignoble. Care to comment from Paine's life story? Did he have syphilis or damage from drinking?

"Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. 30But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first."

Not a mystery what "12" meant to the Israel people
