Thomas Paine was one of the most least religious of our founding father, but when he said we can not conduct science with out God. The schools teaching astronomy, and natural philosophy as accomplishments are taught it wrong, it should be taught as theologically. Man didn't make or invent this earth, he can only discover them. Thomas Paine said schools teaching this way they stop short and create doubts of our Creater. Thomas Paine thought science should be taught as theologically and not a accomplishment.
