Pretty much voodoo garbage. I don't know why this would claim "meticulous research" as it is simply loaded with "cherry-picked" quotes and segments (and then taken out of context), really bad interpretations (or really good misinterpretations), and flat out falsehoods.

Not as bad as Skousen's "5000 Year Leap", but fairly close!

It is obvious that most of Gragg's "quoted" statements and situations were taken out of context (and / or edited).

In fact, it seems that there was no real cross-checking of ANYTHING presented by Gragg.

People who buy into this line of pseudo science / pseudo history (mostly I personally believe due to it being pushed by the Tea Party groups, similar groups like the Liberty Coalition, and the 912 groups) should be ashamed of themselves!

Anyway...

Simple non biased research would show this to be the extreme fiction that it is! And then "positive" readers would grasp the meaning of propaganda and their lack of TRUE faith!

For a TRUE view of our main Founding Fathers, read "Revolutionary Spirits" by Reverend Gary Kowalski.

And read up on Thomas Paine, one of the strongest, if not THE strongest, of the Deists and whose pre and early Revolutionary War publications were massive best sellers and significantly fanned the LIBERAL REVOLUTIONARY spirit that encouraged the insurgents to - with significant help from (royal) France - to eventually win this both ideological revolutionary war and civil war (as a great many - 1/3 according to John Adams - Americans were very conservative Tories, aka American Loyalists, who actively supported and fought for the British King).
