I'd advice ignoring Paine's

And I'd advice ignoring Paine's book. It makes claims with no citations (made up), and uses mockery not reason.

The Age of Revelation is an actual scholarly book. It doesn't claim things, it actually cites things. That is the reason Steve doesn't want you to read it. He just wants to sit on his ass and offer nothing, as opposed to the principle refutation of the book at that time.

Age of Revelation is a great apologetic book. Paine's book is trash, and was refuted by virtually every major founding father as trash, including Franklin.

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.
