I think we finally agree on something. Although no one attemped to prove to me that air exists in the manner that I asked for, my point for asking the question was to get everyone to finally admit that you don't necessarily have to be able to see and define something scientifically to know that it exists as a fact. Thank you for clearing that up and proving my original point. I'm sure you are going to claim that the 2 are not comparable, so I'll take it one step further and ask this question. Does your conscience exist? Can you prove that one to me scientifically? Every normal person is aware of his or her conscience which makes them aware of their existence, but IT CANNOT BE PROVEN to exist scientifically!
Just because Jefferson made the point to question everything, doesn't mean that he didn't come to the conclusion that God existed. He refers to God, and the Creator everywhere in his writings. He constantly refers to moral truth (the foundation for the Constitution), as coming from God. One of the hundreds of quotes by Jefferson once again refering to the Creator as the source who endowed us all with the understanding of moral truth (law): "He who made us would have been a pitiful bungler, if he had made the rules of our moral conduct a matter of science, For one man of science, there are thousands who are not. What would have become of them? Man was destined for society. His morality, therefore, was to be formed to this object. He was endowed with the sense of right and wrong merely relative to this. This sense is as much a part of his nature, as the sense of hearing, seeing, feeling; it is the true foundation of morality... The moral sense, or conscience, is as much a part of man as his leg or arm. It is given to all human beings in a stronger or weaker degree, as force of members is given them in a greater or less degree. It may be strengthened by exercise, as may any particular limb of the body. This sense is submitted indeed in some degree to the guidance of reason; but it is a small stock which is required for this: even a less one than what we call Common sense. State a moral case to the ploughman and the professor. The former will decide it as well, and often better than the latter, because he has not been led astray by artificial rules." - Thomas Jefferson to Peter Carr, 1787.
How about this one: "How necessary was the care of the Creator in making the moral principle so much a part of our Constitution as that no errors of reasoning or of speculation might lead us astray from its observance in practice." -Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Law, 1814.
And for all those who are so sure that Jefferson did not lean towards the Christian theology why was he always quoting phrases from the Bible? Who do you think he was refering to when he made this statement? "Our Savior... has taught us to judge the tree by its fruit, and to leave motives to Him who can alone see into them." - Thomas Jefferson to Martin Van Buren, 1824. Hmm?
Can we now be honest and agree that one need not have scientific proof to know for a fact that something is true? Can we at least admit that just because God may choose not to reveal Himself in a visual sense, doesn't mean He cannot make Himself known in another sense.
