THOMAS JEFFERSON ON INTELLIGENT DESIGN

Joe Renick speaks at UNM"I hold (without appeal to revelation) that when we take a view of the Universe, in its parts general or particular, it is impossible for the human mind not to perceive and feel a conviction of design, consummate skill, and indefinite power in every atom of its composition....So irresistible are these evidences of an intelligent and powerful Agent that, of the infinite numbers of men who have existed thro’ all the time, they have believed, in the proportion of a million at least to Unit, in the hypothesis of an eternal pre-existence of a creator, rather than in that of a self-existent Universe."

He also said...

“It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.”

and...

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny.  When the government fears the people, there is liberty".

and...

"I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man"
