The founding fathers wanted to protect, above all things, the unalienable rights which all men possessed: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

See related link "Our Founding Fathers were not Christians" and scroll down to "Thomas Paine"Thomas Paine was a deist and not a Christian. He believed in God but not the Bible. Regarding the above Founding Fathers answer above ~ According to, Thomas Paine was not one of the Founding Fathers. (!)They have only this short list: George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, George Mason, Gouverneur Morris, Roger Sherman, James Wilson, Edmund Randolph. Wikipedia gives a far greater number of Founding Fathers and here is part of what wikipedia says (Thomas Paine is listed as a Founding Father at this site):The Founding Fathers of the United States were the political leaders who signed the Declaration of Independence or otherwise participated in the American Revolution as leaders of the Patriots, or who participated in drafting the U. S. constitution eleven years later. The Founders were opposed by the Loyalists who supported the British monarchy and opposed independence (though most Loyalists remained in the U.S. after 1783 and supported the new government). Some authors draw a distinction between the Founders, who signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776 or participated in the Revolution, and the Framers, who drafted the United States Constitution to replace the Articles of Confederation, in 1787. Warren G. Harding is credited with coining the phrase "Founding Fathers" in his keynote address to the 1916 Republican National Convention when he was still a Senator.

The monument on Rushmore was intended to honor presidents of the United States, not founding fathers. It just so happens, perhaps not coincidentally, that two of the men everybody agrees were among the greatest presidents, Washington and Jefferson, were also founding fathers. Everybody also agrees that Lincoln is one of the greatest presidents, certainly second only to Wshington and there are those who would rate him above Washington. As for Teddy Roosevelt, he may have seemed more important when the monument was being sculpted, in the 1930's, than he does now. Even then there were those who felt he was not important enough to be included with the other three but he was a cousin of Franklin Roosevelt who was president when the project was under way so what are you going to do? Michael Montagne Theodore Roosevelt is the backbone and founder of the national park system. Roosevelt was an avid outdoorsman and he loved to travel the country. That could be why he is on there.

There were lots of people who can be called founding fathers. The best thing for you to do is look up the individual names in an encyclopedia or your textbook. Even a dictionary will have the more famous men like Washington and Jefferson. If for some reason you don't have access to any such books do Google searches for the names you have, I'm sure they will all be on the internet many times. Anyway, go look them up. Any writeup on them will tell you their states. Michael Montagne I agree with the person above. The founding fathers are from such a wide rage of places that its hard to name all of the places. If there's once specific place your looking for or a specific founding father you want to find from a certain area do a search on google for the name or otherwise just put in founding fathers from the state of Connecticut or something. I hope i helped. There are many founding fathers that contributed to making our country what it is today but the most recognized are eleven of them. The following is a list of those eleven and what states they came from: George Washington, James Madison, Edmund Randolph, George Mason, and Thomas Jefferson (Virginia); John Adams (Massachusetts); Benjamin Franklin and James Wilson (Pennsylvania); Alexander Hamilton and Gouverneur Morris(New York); and Roger Sherman (Connecticut).

The pyramid to which you refer is part of the Great Seal of the United States. The pyramid is unfinished, symbolic of a country still being built. Above it is the Eye of Providence, no doubt the "mystic or religious artifact" mentioned in the question. See the related links section for more information. Religious items appear in iconography of the United States of America because the founding fathers were predominantly Christian, or at least had a respect for freedom of religion; this is in spite of modern revisionist history that seeks to deny these truths. Some of the founding fathers were also members of Masonic societies, so that symbolism appears as well.

Branch 1 - a bicameral legislature, creates laws Branch 2 - the executive, approves and enforces laws Branch 3 - the judiciary, interprets the laws This is not how it really works, but in the minds of the founding fathers, the above checks and balances were to prevent any one branch from getting too much power.

Alexander Hamilton, by far. Aside from authoring most of the Federalist papers, as Treasury Secretary under Washingtion, he virtually created every part of government for the new republic from scratch. Hamilton is beyond brilliant. There is an outstanding biography from Ron Chernow that documents a mind that rises above some very stiff competition.

Yes. Read the full writings of many of the Founding Fathers (particularly of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, etc.) and you'll find the true meanings of America, the way it should have always been. The Founding Fathers would say that if America lost its way, there will be people to remember the truth and teach it to others. Very interesting! Another answer (in agreement with the above): Some people misunderstand the principle of separation of government and religion. The actual fact is that by "freedom of religion", they never intended freedom from religion. America was meant to be a God-fearing nation, as is evedent on its currency and in its Pledge of Allegiance. This is part of true patriotism.

The unfinished pyramid with 13 steps is the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States. It means that the union of the 13 colonies is only the beginning of the nation. The All-seeing Eye of Providence above the pyramid is surrounded by the Latin phrase 'Annuit Coeptis' meaning 'He (God) approves or our undertaking.' The inclusion of this motto on the seal should be enough to debunk the revisionists' claims that the Founding Fathers were athiests and agnostics.
