John Adams elevates the occult Masonic god of reason over the word of God while denying the supernatural and word of God in the Bible at the same time:
“When philosophical reason is clear and certain by intuition or necessary induction no subsequent revelation supported by prophecies or miracles can supercede it.” (John Adams, as cited in “American Philosophy: an Encyclopedia”, by John Lachs, Robert B. Talisse, p. 164)
Adams tells us the principles behind the American Revolution are the principles of nature and reason, which are none other than the principles of Freemasonry:
“These are what are called revolution principles. They are the principles of Aristotle and Plato… the principles of nature and eternal reason.” (John Adams, “Novanglus and Massachusettensis”, or Political Essays, p. 12)
Adams writes to Jefferson that he believes Voltaire and his colleagues have done more for religious liberty than the protestant reformers Calvin and Luther:
“I should have given my reason for rejoicing in Voltaire and company. It is because I believe they have done more to propagate religious liberty than Calvin, or Luther.” (John Adams, Letter to Thomas Jefferson, December 25, 1813)
This statement from Adams is quite revealing if one understands what Voltaire believed. Voltaire wrote:
“Christianity is the most ridiculous, the most absurd, and bloody religion that has ever infected the world. It took twelve ignorant fishermen to establish Christianity. I will show the world how one Frenchman can destroy it.” (Voltaire cited in the “Encyclopedia of Ethics”, by Lawrence C. Becker, Charlotte B. Becker, Volume 3. p. 1771; Voltaire cited in “Thy Kingdom Come Part II” by J. Parnell McCarter, online edition, chapter 59)
