Personally I believe that the Flying Spaghetti Monster created the world 100 years ago after a drinking binge- resulting in the imperfections that we see in the world. I realize that there is repeatable and verifiable evidence demonstrating that the world is much older than 100 years, but this is because such evidence (including fossils, radiometric dating, DNA remnants, etc.) was planted by Him to test the faith of us Pastafarians. When a sample dated via the Carbon 14 method- or any of the multiple other radiometric dating techniques- what the scientist doesn't realize is that He is tinkering with the results with His noodly appendage.

I often wonder what would happen if the writings of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, Thomas Paine, or Ben Franklin were posted on court house walls, or taught in our schools.

A few examples..

James Madison wrote:
"Experience witnesseth that ecclesiastical establishments, instead of maintaining the purity and efficacy of religion, have had a contrary operation. During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What has been its fruits? More or less, in all places, pride and indolence in the clergy; ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution."

"Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise."

John Adams wrote:
"The divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for absurdity. Nowhere in the Gospels do we find a precept for Creeds, Confessions, Oaths, Doctrines, and whole cartloads of other foolish trumpery that we find in Christianity."

"This would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religion in it."

Thomas Jefferson wrote:
"Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear."

"I have recently been examining all the known superstitions of the world, and do not find in our particular superstition (Christianity) one redeeming feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology."


Thomas Paine wrote:
"Take away from Genesis the belief that Moses was the author, on which only the strange belief that it is the word of God has stood, and there remains nothing of Genesis but an anonymous book of stories, fables, and traditionary or invented absurdities, or of downright lies."

"All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit."


It's also not well known but said by those that knew him well, That Abraham Lincoln hated Christianity and considered the idea of divine conception absurd.

Lincoln's first law partner, John T. Stuart wrote:
"He was an avowed and open infidel, and sometimes bordered on atheism. He went further against Christian beliefs and doctrines and principles than any man I have ever heard."

Supreme Court Justice David Davis wrote:
"He [Lincoln] had no faith, in the Christian sense of the term-- he had faith in laws, principles, causes and effects."


I have considered the theory of alien scientists seeding the planet for a long time. I suppose it has at least, if not more possibility of explaining our being here than any of the major religions. I suspect Jefferson and other science motivated individuals of his time may have pondered such ideas too.
