    Garbled paraphrase ...

    "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible." -- George Washington (unconfirmed)

    of a secondary source ....

    It is impossible to account for the creation of the universe without the agency of a Supreme Being. It is impossible to govern the universe without the aid of a Supreme Being. -- George Washington, according to biographer James K. Paulding.

    Amazing!

    Good diary, thanks.

    The extinction of the human race will come from its inability to EMOTIONALLY comprehend the exponential function -- Edward Teller.

      It's scrolling pretty fast down the list, but I'll hope for a diary rescue at least.  

      What amazes me is that there are things the founding fathers have said that could be used to defend a more Christian-interpretation of their character (but not in their legal writing, which is significant) without having to use fake ones.  They're banking on the power of rapid internet spread of misinformation - not enough people regularly read snopes.

      Saint, n. A dead sinner revised and edited. - Ambrose Bierce
