The big problem with Paine - Age of Revelation

I read the age of Revelation Steve, you are about 200 years out of date. It completely refutes Paine, and was written by Pain's boss - president of the continental congress, who notes Paine never held an elected office in the United States, and self-appointed himself to a committee (nice).

As Age of Revelation notes, after refuting every major argument of Paine, noting his ignorance and citing real references, ignoring Paine's major vehicle for argument (mockery - which is not intellectual), noting recycling of previous arguments from the last century - nothing new, and that his book was being supported by what looked like funds from a principle of the Illuminati (have you bothered to check who Paine was working with??) is..

Paine was a self claimed deist not an atheist. You can't logically make the same arguments as a deist as you would an atheist, because if you admit to a God and Creator, you have to find a rational reason why He *wouldn't* reveal himself, and Paine does not.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
