Reason: The Only Oracle of Man by Ethan Allen


Reason the Only Oracle of Man Ethan Allen


Reason: The Only Oracle of Man is a hard hitting attack on superstition and "revealed" religion while encouraging the replacement of superstition in our lives and in our ideas of God with God-given reason.

Ethan Allen was an American Revolutionary War hero. He and his "Green Mountain Boys" captured Fort Ticonderoga from the British, thus securing much needed supplies and weapons for George Washington and his rebels. Allen also spent time as a prisoner of war of the British. After suffering greatly at the hands of his captors, he was freed through a prisoner exchange effort.

When Allen was a young man he became friends with Thomas Young, a freethinking medical doctor who was a Deist. Together they worked on Reason: The Only Oracle of Man. However, they went their separate ways when the American Revolution started, both supporting the revolution in their own ways. It wasn't until after the war and after Thomas Young died that Ethan Allen secured their manuscript for Reason: The Only Oracle of Man from Young's wife. He worked on it some more and finally had it printed in 1785.

This excellent book offers Deists and freethinkers loads of ammunition in the fight for reason and progress! Allen pulls no punches as he destroys the arguments of the revealed religionists with nothing but REASON! He not only demolishes the dogmas and teachings of the Bible and Judaism and Christianity, but he offers reason and Deism for a happy and natural replacement. A great and eye-opening read!

News of Interest to Deists
A recent survey on religion shows there are 34 million Americans who are classified as "Nones", that is they do not embrace any of the "revealed" religions and the vast majority of them are not Atheists. In actuality, the vast majority of the "Nones" are actually Deists!

The survey shows a giant step forward for Deism in the fact that it actually uses the word "Deist" and for the very significant raw numbers it shows as representing the number of people who are Deists.  In reality, the number of Deists is actually higher than the survey shows because the survey uses an outdated definition of Deist. For a more accurate definition please see our Deism Defined page.

Astronomers report a recent study strongly indicates the Universe is infinite.
One of the reasons the freethinker Giordano Bruno was tortured and murdered by being burned alive by the Catholic Church during the Inquisition was that he said the Universe is eternal and infinite which violates the superstitions in the Bible found in Genesis. This new study vindicates Bruno.

Does the Abraham Accord Promote Peace or a Plan For War? 
The Abraham Accord between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and the US seems to be more of a war plan against Iran than any kind of legitimate peace agreement.
