An atheist might say that God doesn't reveal himself because God doesn't exist. Paine can't. He has lost the argument.
It is exactly because of that - that Paine's book isn't a book written by an atheist, that Boidinot's book is worth looking at. Age of Revelation.
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.
